COMMUNITY OUT-REACH

I love to observe life around me! Sounds, nature, travel and relationships have shaped me as a person and have had a direct influence on my music. But the beauty lies in reciprocity - I enjoy sharing music and conversation with friends, students, artists and audiences from world-over. 

 

Unless a mutual space is created between you and the world, the connect or the emotional pull towards the music cannot be felt. So to create that experience, both the artist and the audience play a very important role.

 

I believe that the core of every individual is the same, irrespective of caste, colour and nationality and only when music transcends this, can it create real transformation… to create this radical, permanent change through music is something I strive for!
