Kaushiki has participated in many major concerts. Apart from rendering Khyals in her performances she has also occasionally adopted contemporary form of Indian pop music.[3] She performed at the Dover Lane Music Conference from the age of 20 and continued participating for the next 5 years. In her recitals she presents a mature and often with rhythmical swing succeeded by unrestrained taans in three and-a-half octaves.[4] In the two-day celebration in honour of vocalist Kishori Amonkar in recognition of her 60 years contribution to music held at Pune on 14 February 2011, Kaushiki rendered raga Todi. Two other artists, Kalapini Komkali of the Gwalior gharana and Nandini Bedekar of the Jaipur-Atrauli gharana, also rendered songs in the same raga Todi at the same venue during the morning session. Bharat Kamat on the tabla and Suyog Kundalkar on the harmonium provided support to all three artists.[11] In the unique musical sessions organized by Mumbai's National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA), ragas in different time-cycles were presented on 18 September 2011 by three vocalists which included Kaushiki, Ulhas Kashalkar, and Devaki Pandit. This rendering was a departure from the normal evening concerts, and the ragas were sung in time periods appropriate to each raga, starting from early morning till evening
