About this author

Sahana Devi was born on 1897. She was an Indian singer, she was widely listened to as the singer of Rabindra Sangeet. She was the niece of Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das.

She was among the few singers to learn directly from Rabindranath Tagore and Dinendranath Tagore. In 1922, she met Dilipkumar Roy in the Gaya session of the Indian National Congress and was deeply influenced by his musical style, though she retained a distinct way of her own. She wrote an autobiography in 1978 called ‘Smritir Kheya’ (Ferrying Down the memory stream).

She was one of two singers allowed by Rabindranath Tagore to improvise his songs.
