Dear Music lovers, please note :

Shweta Jhaveri's Saraswati bãni music is sung purely in Hindustani classical vocal music tradition, performed with traditional manners and not meant to be adopted to other genre-s. In recent years a few singers/composers adapted Saraswati bani's music-lyrics ( such as Shyaam ghanashyaam in raga Chandrakauns) to a different genre, performing on Youtube. Shweta Jhaveri personally does not know the musicians Swati Jhaveri, Mr.Patel, Swami-ji and is not related to them. She suggests to such talented musicians " If you like my music, please support maintain the Hindustani classical genre and its traditions. Do not adopt or apply/adapt Saraswati bãni's traditional music-lyrics to other genres. Above all, it is an artistic requirement. If you like my world music from the past, for more than 15 years I have not sung or applied Hindustani lyrics or lyrics in other languages to World music. To me, traditional lyrics sound the most beautiful and expressive in their respective genres."
