Varsha (Singapore)

Come witness virtuosity and joyful music-making with Varsha, an up-and-coming local group who blend their musical roots in the Indian culture with rhythmic music as the foundation for their compelling improvisations. Since their debut in 2014, Varsha has been pushing the boundaries of traditions with its synergy of styles, from jazz, classical Indian and popular Indian music.

In this performance, Varsha will premiere new original compositions, along with the group’s arrangements of classic jazz standards. Adding to their unique sound is veteran guitarist Paul Danial and guest saxophonist Tim O’Dwyer. Translating their enthusiasm to audiences, don’t miss these inspiring nights of music and improvisation!
