Kaushiki Chakraborty

Listen with Liv: where I share a track that has lifted my spirits.


I published this on a separate page last month but have decided to move it to this page to simplify this site.

My choice for October 2021, is from an Indian classical singer I was lucky enough to hear performing live, in London, a few years ago. I could listen to Kaushiki Chakraborty’s clear and expressive voice all day long. There’s a surprising mix of Indian and Western instrumentals, which I think compliment her singing, in this arrangement of Niyat e Shauq (a ghazal – a devotional or romantic love poem) originally popularised by legendary Bollywood singers: Ashe Bhosle and Noor Jahan.
