Rekha Surya in Concert
Presented in association with the Indo-American Arts Council.
Hindustani classical singer Rekha Surya trained under Begum Akhtar and Girija Devi. She sings Ghazal in the traditional style of Lucknow Gharana and Sufi poetry in a light-classical style.

“Rekha Surya is a talent to behold. Rarely does one find such confluence of restraint and abandon, discipline and playfulness, nerve-tingling sensuality and a near-sacred dedication to the Indian art of vocal exposition. Her voice has presence. Raw and earthy, it announces itself. Her handling of rhythm is superb.” - Baltimore Sun

Originally from Lucknow, Rekya Surya has been invited to sing by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, Cornell, MIT, Columbia, Yale, Harvard, the World Music Institute of New York, University of Toronto, Nehru Centre London, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan London, Bharat Bhavan Bhopal, the National Centre for Performing Arts Mumbai, Ram Vilas Palace Baroda, Roosevelt House New Delhi, Sahitya Kala Parishad, Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy and the Indian Council for Cultural Relations. She has performed all over India, as well as in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Tajikistan and Norway.
