Lavani songs are among the finest Marathi folk music ever. The feminine singer generally sings it to convey her happiness. This may occasionally be voiced by males, but as tradition dictates; it is most of the time female singers.
The phrase Lavani descends from the word Lavanya that entails beauty. The Nirguni Lavani (ideological) and the Shringari Lavani (sexy) are the 2 characters. The devotional euphony of the Nirguni cult is common all over Malwa.
