My Jazz Story
Published on: 2019-01-04
I grew up performing classical music as a concert pianist, but got into jazz later on in my career and loved how each performance is different. I
composed and released three albums to date, including a new sound blending Sufi music and Indian ragas with a jazz trio. The beauty about jazz is
it really gives you a window into the interpreter.
My House Concert Story
I debuted my last two albums at Carnegie Halla venue that I had dreamed about ever since I was a little girl. But on the day of the performance,
one of my singers had laryngitis which was a huge snag: replacing a Sufi singer at the last minute is not easy! But as miraculous as it sounds, I was
able to find a last minute Sufi singer and train him on the day of the performance to sing my original music, and we got a standing ovation despite
the setback! The audience loved it. It was a beautiful and surreal experience that neither I nor my band will ever forget.
