Music expresses feeling and thought, without language; it was below and before speech, and it is above and beyond all words.

Allah Jilai Bai

Allah Jilai Bai (1 February 1902 – 3 November 1992) was a folk singer from Rajasthan, India.

Born in Bikaner to a family of singers, by the age of 10 she was singing in the Durbar of Maharaja Ganga Singh. She took singing lessons from Ustad Hussain Baksh Khan and later on from Achhan Maharaj.

She was well versed in Maand, Thumri, Khayal and Dadra. Perhaps her best-known piece is Kesaria Balam. In 1982, the Indian Government awarded her the Padma Shri in Arts field, one of the highest civilian awards. She has been also awarded by Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 1988 for Folk Music.
