Falguni Pathak (born 12 March 1969) is an Indian female singer, performing artist, and composer based in Mumbai. Her music is based on traditional musical forms from the Indian state of Gujarat. Since her professional debut in 1998, she has developed into an artist with a large fan base across India.[2] Once asked how she decided to take up singing as a career, she replied that it happened by default.[3]

Her debut album was released in 1998,[4] and she has also recorded numerous songs for Bollywood movies. The theme of most of her songs is love. She has performed in many shows in India and other countries, backed by a band called Tha Thaiyaa.

She has some very popular Indian pop singles to her credit, still heard and appreciated all over India. Her albums are not only famous for the melodious songs but also for the cute love stories depicted with them. She is very popular with the Gujarati community where she is called to perform for popular festivals like Navratri[5]

Some of her popular songs are "Chudi jo khanki haath ma", "Maine payal hai chhankai", "Meri chunar udd udd jaye", "Ayi pardesh se pariyon ki rani" and"Sawaan Mein" .

In August 2013, it was reported that she would make Rs 2 crore during the year's Navratri festivities. The singer was reportedly offered Rs 22 lakh for each day she sings and performs for an event management company. The organisers were planning to utilize her popularity by wooing sponsors.[6]
