Journeying both Outside and Within:
My work has now taken me to delightfully varied places – concert halls in Mumbai, villages in Bengal, ghats of Varanasi, universities in the USA. In every place, I try to contextualise the music and poetry to the reality that my listeners are in. I like slow travel, immersing in the place that I go to, meeting musicians from the region, and I absolutely love learning songs from new places! I am grateful for many collaborators and co-conspirators in my journey – Yuji Nakagawa, Shruteendra Katagade, Vedanth Bharadwaj, Sanjukta Wagh, Netai Chandra Das – and many others. Without them, the music would not be what it is.
