Background

As a musician, her focus is on retelling traditional music from her experiences of migration, and mediated by machine. She is interested in understanding the use of the voice as a disembodied, and distorted object.

She trained in north indian classical singing from a young age, and later, western classical composition. In addition to being a vocalist, she plays the harmonium and other instruments. In her free time, she loves to swim and sketch.
