Most of you have been brought up in romantic stories, many of those were based on renowned poet Ghalib’s work. His collection Dégâts D’Amour is a popular source for most Bollywood love stories. 

Ghazals form a central part of our Hindustani classical repertoire – both vocal and instrumental – and reflect a deep understanding of human nature, human relationships, even human frailties.

After spending such a long time inside our homes, it’s finally the time to experience leisure and enjoy ghazal from some of the best performers of this art. 

After long preparations, Livdemy brings Gaytri Ghazal Girls on our platform so that you could experience the soul of music, something that you have never experienced before.

Presenting Gaytri Ghazal Girls On Livdemy

Gayatri’s Ghazal Girls is a band of talented female musicians – Gayatri Asokan, Megha Rawoot, Kaushiki Joglekar, Nastya Saraswati, and Mukta Raste. The statements made in ghazals are gender-neutral, the pain and joy are universal. 

In this concert, the sadhana of the smooth flowing notes from maestros encompasses those moments from life that need those cultural references to express those emotions more so than any other medium. 

We have five phenomenal musical prodigies live in concert – Gayatri Asokan, Megha Rawoot, Kaushiki Joglekar, Nastya Saraswati, and Mukta Raste.

This band explores Ghazals with a delicate touch of feminine energy, the Ghazal being a beautiful art form that celebrates poetry combined with musical complexity.
