AllMusic Review by

Two pieces by the reigning queen of khayal, "Raag Gujri Todi" and "Raag Jaunpuri." Restrained (almost too much so) in the earlier passages, as she builds her performance Sultana begins to sparkle, singing with strength and joyousness. An incidental charm of uncensored live performance, occasional asides, a chuckle, even a cleared throat, only add to the immediacy of the recording.
