About the Event

Tawaifs and women performers historically wore a reputation that tainted them and made their life difficult. They do not get enough credit for their most valuable contribution to Indian Culture - their music! Through beautiful renditions of thumri, dadra, hori, jhoola, chaiti, ghazal and so on, the artists trace the evolution of this beautiful genre that gained popularity through their performances.
