Jonisha Poudel

As a gifted exponent of khayal, the preeminent genre of Hindustani classical music, Jonisha Poudel has already made a deep mark at a young age. Trained under the guidance of Shree K.C., one of Nepal’s most respected khayal and dhrupad vocalists, she has won multiple honours and performed at many prestigious classical music festivals. She has also studied with Pt. Vishnu Acharya, the renowned Nepali dhrupad singers, and the decorated Indian vocalist Pt. Rajeshwor Acharya. In 2017, she performed a solo concert organised by the Sanskritik Sansthan (National Cultural Corporation). Her talent ranges beyond classical music as well: she has recorded hit songs for the Nepali film industry and been the lead vocalist for the band Vastu.
