Some of my first posts on Saree Dreams featured the enigmatic performer Gauhar Jaan. Here she sits in a studio shot, demurely draped in a minimalist white saree with the pallu over her hair in back, and tucked across the front to the waist. She looks rather like a Parsi lady – at least quite different from some of her more usual flashy stage costumes! The blouse appears to be of embroidered velvet, the jewelry simple. She was a complex woman; a singer with a mysterious background and life, very famous at the turn of the 20th century. When I find a new image of her I feel as though I have discovered something about an old friend.
