Arguably one of Kerala’s most talented singers, Chitra has performed on stage and television all over India and many places abroad, such as Sri Lanka, Canada, Mauritius, Qatar, UAE, Oman, Bahrain, France, Germany, Malaysia and USA. Spontaneity, innovation and portrayal of the diverse moods of the lyrics are her forté.
The combination of a great voice, immaculate diction, a lovely stage presence and a flair for acting has made Chitra Iyer the hottest Indian singer from the South in recent years. She has a rich repertoire, with an ability to enthrall audiences with her soulfully rendered ghazals or have them swinging to popular numbers from Indian films of all languages and eras. She is musically gifted and is highly skilful in ghazals, geets and film songs.
In all her stage presentations, she has a good rapport with her co-artists and extends this to the audience, which is the perfect recipe for a thoroughly enjoyable concert. She has also anchored popular TV shows on Malayalam TV channels and judged a number of competitions on Tamil TV channels.
