Smt Allah jilai bai- Gem of India- Rajasthan

Her voice is magical, pure and full of true emotions. When one hears her song the Kesariya Balam, that leaves everyone mesmerized. This song is a Rajasthani Maand, often touted as Semi classical or folk but in true sense it is high calibre  singing mastered only after many years of practices. Smt Allah Jilai Bai was gifted with Talent and voice, with her struggle she mastered this art of Rajasthani singing. It is difficult also. but touches everyone’s heart. SInce the song and music comes from the earth “Rajputane ki Dharti” as i can put into words. That land is full of valour, devotion, Bhakti, Swami Bhakti, Balidaan, Swabhiman etc etc. words will be not be sufficient to describe the true color of Rajputana. But All those great singers have done it all these years. Maanganyars, Langas, Bhopa and Bhoopi etc and in the court or Haveli the singers were posted and invited to sing at court by Kings-rajputs, thus they nurtured this form of singing. Even the Dance was also patronised by them. The Kathak was patronised and got a different color of Valour. That form of Kathak is full of swift and powerfull bols and thus now known as Jaipur Gharana
