Barnali's presentation of Khayal and Thumri bears the essentials of Banaras and Gwaliar gharanas. But it is the assimilation of various gharanas which actually bears the chief characteristics of her taleem during her stay at Banaras.

It is not only Thumri & Khayal, such forms as "Chaiti", "Kajri", " Hori" & "Bhajan" which marks her spirit of music. She justly finds emotional upliftment through the presentation & persuation of such forms of music. The same spirit of music made her to transgrace the forms of Bengali Raga pradhan songs and Najrulgiti.
