Saraswati bãni is Shweta Jhaveri's creation in Hindustani classical vocal music. It collectively presents her Khayãl, Dhrupad, Tarãnã, Bhajan and Rãga creations sung by her since her teenage for the past 40 years. Preserving North-Indian classical music under the Mewati traditions, Shweta has also vocally performed her compositions in many rãga-s such as Jog, Abhogi, Yaman, chandrakauns, PuriyãDhanãshri and her rãga creations such as KrishnaBhairavi and Nirmohi.

In Hindustani classical music the term bãni in Hindi is the same as vãni. Saraswati Bãni here means musical language or style. Its' vocal compositional style is related to or influenced by Dhrupad hence this creation is named Bãni and it can also be pronounced as Saraswati vãni. The North-Indian bãni is different than the South-Indian bãni. Saraswati bãni's music is performed with traditional manner. Shweta being one of the names of or derived from Saraswati, this creation is named so and dedicates to music.
