Hello, thank you for visiting!
I'm an Indian-American composer and vocalist born and raised in Minnesota. I went to college in Princeton, New Jersey and now live and study in the UK. Growing up as the daughter of a professional musician, I was fortunate to have early exposure to rich traditional music and fascinating combinations of instruments. I trained in Carnatic music for several years and learned classical piano before becoming a student of Western vocal music― as a chorister and then as a soloist.
This multi-faceted musical environment lit the creative fire in me. I write music that explores intersections in my South Indian and Western classical background, my dual cultural identity, my interests across musical "genres", and often all of the above. In my quest to keep growing, I occupy myself with this balance: aiming to blur boundaries in order to bring us closer together while upholding my belief in the value of authenticity in representation and voice. I am constantly learning, and I hope that my music exposes and educates, too.
You can read my formal bios, find out about my music, listen to me on SoundCloud and YouTube, see my upcoming events, and, if you'd like, purchase available scores. You can also follow me on social media.
