Girija Devi (Hindi: गिरिजा देवी; IAST: Girijā Ḍhevī) (born 1929) is an Indian classical singer of the Banaras gharana. She performs classical and light classical music and has helped elevate the profile of thumri. Devi performs the purabi ang thumri style typical of the tradition and her repertoire includes the semi-classical genres kajri, caiti, and holi and she sings khyal, Indian folk music, and tappa. The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians states that her semi-classical singing combines her classical training with the regional characteristics of the songs of Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh.
