The film Girija explores the life of the renowned vocalist Girija Devi. It is about her life in Banaras, India, and her unique contribution to classical Northern Indian music. For Girija, music was much more than melody: It was a creative, life-changing experience. “Music was like a vast ocean for me,” she says, describing what it was like to learn other classical forms like Thumri. “I felt as though I were swimming in it with immense joy. For me, music has divine powers.” Using rare concert footage and person interviews with the musician herself, Girija gives rare insight into the life of a legend. Though her music is deeply rooted in Indian culture, it has profound universal appeal. She modulates her mellifluous voice with subtle changes in grain and cadence to create a thousand moods: the joy of a teenager coming of age, the earthly wisdom of a suffering heart, and the spiritual epiphany of seeking God. The film provides an unforgettable and intimate encounter with the great musical genius of Girija Devi.
