Raagaverse is an exciting Indo-Jazz fusion project spearheaded by Shruti Ramani (voice) in a collaboration with the award-winning Jodi Proznick (bass), the supremely talented Noah Franche-Nolan (piano, Nord), and the fiery Nicholas Bracewell (drums). Raagaverse’s music melds ancient and rich Hindustani melodies with dense and dynamic Jazz harmonies.

For this special show, Raagaverse will be delving into the vibrant world of Bollywood, from Lata Mangeshkar classics to A.R. Rahman’s magic. Shruti will share clips from the legendary Bollywood musicals which inspire her, counter-pointing them with the band’s unique take on these songs, in Raagaverse’s iconic jazz quartet sound.

The show will also feature other extraordinary musical guests; Kiarah O’Kane on backing vocals, Thad Bailey-Mai on Trumpet and Curtis Andrews on percussion alongside Raagaverse.
