SAKHI सखी meaning friend in Sanskrit, is a new creation initiated by Kaushiki Chakraborty with five talented female artists from India.
Together they present a collaboration inspired by their own interpretation of traditional repertoires combining carnatic and hindustani music with kathak dance.
Trained by male artists, they showcase the feminine aspiration in an enthusiastic and elaborated performance.
