Kaushiki Chakraborty: Music of India

Part of Darbar

Listen to celebrated singer of Indian classical music, Kaushiki Chakraborty, as she showcases her mastery of khayal and thumri styles of Hindustani vocal lyricism in a special performance.

Coming from a musical family, Chakraborty’s father and teacher is the renowned singer Pandit Ajoy Chakraborty. Hailed as a prodigy when she first emerged as a performer, Chakraborty has established herself as one of the finest interpreters of the Indian classical style, completely devoted to the music and its spiritual depth.

With her gleaming voice accompanied by Satyajit Talwalkar on the tabla and Ajay Joglekar on the harmonium, this is a chance to experience one of the world’s evolving classical traditions kept alive by some of India’s most virtuosic performers. Stirring, transporting and totally enchanting.
