Folk music needs a stage to survive: Malini Awasthi

It was my most memorable performance because I began without my musicians. They were delayed in traffic due to monsoon rain. I love the Gurgaon audience as they are music lovers and connect with me. What can the audience expect today? Since I am from Awadh, I will sing songs associated with Awadh. The traditional folk music of Uttar Pradesh is what I’m known for, hence I’ll sing wedding songs based on the ‘nataura’ (songs sung by women all night) as they wait for the ‘baraat’ (wedding party) to return with the bride. There will be songs on the sehra (turban-tying ceremony of the groom) and ‘kajri’ and ‘bidai’ (bride’s parting with her family).
