About

Gauhar is the fascinating story of one of India's first mass media superstars at the turn of the last century!

An Armenian Christian who later converted to Islam, Gauhar Jaan was a naturally gifted musician with a wide repertoire. One of the earliest women artists who seized the opportunity that came with the advent of recording technology, hers was the first Indian voice to be recorded in 1902, and during her life she cut close to 600 records,( and sang in over 20 languages! ) with her fame travelling as far as Europe, with her face emblazoned on matchboxes and postcards!

GAUHAR the play, lays bare her life with all its attendant myths, legends and folklore, as well as the times during which she lived and made exquisite music.
Her independent life style and feisty nature symbolise the indomitable spirit of the resurgent women musicians of her time, and her high-pitched and flirtatious announcement - 'My name is Gauhar Jaan', at the end of all her recordings, epitomises a milestone in the history of Indian classical music, one that would change forever its content, structure and style of presentation. 
The play has live singing by all the actors and has completed 70 shows across the world!
