Rekha Surya has won acclaim as a diva that comes closest to filling the void her mentor Begum Akhtar left in the hearts of ghazal lovers. With invaluable training from Girija Devi and Bashir Khan too, she has performed extensively across the country and abroad. Her passionate concerts rendering Hori, Kajri, Jhoola and Dadra, interspersed with Ghazal have succeeded in evoking haunting memories of a bygone era.

She is an A Grade Artist who sings regularly for All India Radio and is in the Established Artist category with ICCR. She represented India at the Asian Music Festival Sri Lanka in 1999 and at the International Falak Festival Tajikistan in 2006.

Come experience her energy, passion and melancholy as she lends her voice to music that touches the heart.

Don't miss Rekha Surya in concert on 21 April at 7:00 p.m.

Hindustani light classical music bridges the gap between pure classical and mainstream music, appealing to both the connoisseur and the layperson. To musically elaborate a word or phrase is the idiom that defines Hindustani light classical music. Weaving variations of a word or phrase displays the singer's range of imagination and distinguishes this genre.

This style of singing is associated with Benares and Lucknow, and from Lucknow is Begum Akhtar's youngest disciple, Rekha Surya, who has also trained under Girija Devi. She has, however, taken a different turn by mainly singing mystical poetry in the romantic style of Thumri, Dadra and Ghazal. Like two sides of a coin, most mystical poetry is both sensual and spiritual.

This evening she will sing the poetry of Amir Khusro, Mirabai and Kabir. The metaphor of the garment is used in both Bhakti and Sufi poetry and during this concert she will present 3 such songs. She begins with a Nirgun Dadra.

Rekha Surya trained under Begum Akhtar and Girija Devi. She is from Lucknow and now lives in New Delhi. She recorded for the Archives of Sangeet Natak Academi in 1994 and has performed all over India as well as in many cities in the US, Canada and Europe.
