 Banaras Gayaki is distinguished by superb layakari and unmatched sweetness. Kashyap Bandhu have a powerful and expressing voice which moves with equal ease in all the three octaves. Their presentation is marked by systematic unfolding of ragas enriched by ornamental patterns. The duet style of singing which requires immense coordination has been skillfully mastered by the duo, whose rendering of alaps and complicated taans are complimentary and non competitive. Kashyap Bandhu posses a rich repertoire of lovely "Bandish" in Khayals as well as Thumris, Dadras and Bhajans which captivates and mesmerizes listeners.
