The very thought behind the realization of Bhaav Rang was the way music evolved. Although music is Universal, it has an emotional relevance and is therefore confined to the way it is emoted. This emotion (Bhaav) along with the distinctly varied forms and colours (Ranga) of music and its evolution in unison is Bhaavranga.

The evolution depicts the forms right from the Hindustani Classical Khayal Music (Vilambit and Drut Bandish ) to Thumri – Dadra – Bhajan – Hori .

Saylee started taking lessons from her Guru Mrs. Usha Deshpande of the Kirana Gharana; a renowned name in the world of music. Her interest and devotion was further nurtured by the keen and exceptionally experienced guidance of Mrs. Arti Anklikar Tikekar of Jaipur and Agra Gharana. With this surefooted base she then spearheaded and made herself worthy of being the disciple of Pandita Padma Talwalkar of Jaipur-Atrauli Gharana.

Having imbibed the moral norms, values and an in-depth understanding of not just one but many Gharanas, Saylee feels more than blessed. And this very fact allows her to harmonize her distinctly diverse styles into one enthralling rendition.

Apart from being a classical vocalist, her interests also lie in performing semi-classical styles like Thumri, Dadra, Hori, Chaiti, Bhajans, Abhanga and Natyasangeet. She also is extremely keen in understanding World Music along with Fusion. She shares the credits of the widely recognised album by the Jazz Saxophonist Finn Martin from Germany. She has also performed with the world renowned Jazz Pianist Louis Banks in his very own band, Aakriti.
