Apoorva is influenced by the best of traditional musicians, but her approach towards presentation is all her own and that makes her music unique. She brings to Khyal singing an expression which, both lyrical and evocative at the same time, maintains the seriousness of the form, unimpaired.

Her coherent presentation of khyal is an aesthetic blending of imaginative alaap, an improvisation in a sonorous and scintillating voice, gracefully weaving exquisite patterns of swaras, unfolding the image of the raga with all its beauty and dignity, combined with an innate sense of laya (rhythm). She judiciously gives equal importance to both gayaki (style) and purity of raga rendition.
