Expert Review

Aditi's style of singing is very colourful. She pays a lot of attention to detail without being monotonous or machanical. Her singing is very fine, almost crystal like. She weaves her musical patterns with delicate filigree work and has a sense of neat pretty designs.
Her voice moves easily between the middle and upper registers. She sings thumris, dadra and tappa with equal ease. She is equally adept at singing Rabindrasangeet. Her thumri elaborations are marked by the typical grace of her guru Shobha Gurtu. Her khayal and tappa elaborations are in complete accordance with the chaste Gwalior gharana style.

Press Reviews

"Aditi Banerjee performed very well, with confidence and precision. She has the ability to entertain and regale the audience with her performances. Her presentation of Thumri, Hori, Dadra were interspersed with raga blends and her ability to return back to the original raga form is commendable."
Maharashtra Times, Mumbai

"Judging by her immaculately rendered Khayal in Jogkauns she impressed as a matured classicist rather than an up and coming artist. She is gifted with a melodious voice and deep artistic insight."
Statesman, New Delhi. 1984.
