Kaveri

Born in London to film director Shekhar Kapur and singer/actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Kaveri currently a student of class 9, started to sing even before she learnt to walk or talk. Having started her musical training in Hindustani classical music at the age of six, Kaveri then trained in western classical vocals, piano and guitar and subsequently started to write and compose songs at the age of 11, recording her first single “Did you know” at the age of twelve. ‘Making music is all I want to do’ says Kaveri who takes great inspiration from the likes of Taylor Swift

“Though I started to sing when I was about 6, I didn't become passionate about it until  I started writing and composing my own songs ” Says Kaveri “Writing and singing are the only things I think I will never get bored of. I feel like music is the only thing that makes sense to me.  My song writing is largely inspired by the situations and people around me. A lot of my songs talk about very exaggerated versions of personal experiences”

She further adds “My parents have always encouraged me and supported me, and I don't think I would have been able to discover my love for music and develop my talent if it wasn’t for them.” 

As for future plans Kaveri wants to pursue a higher formal education in music . Royal College of Music, Guildhall or Berklee are some of the institutions she hopes to head out to in the near future.

Vasuda Sharma

Trained in Indian classical music at a very young age, Vasuda Sharma is one of the few independent artists who stand out in the Indian music industry. Formerly remembered for her stint as the youngest member of India’s first millennial pop band Aasma, Vasuda today stands as an individual artist who’s way more conscious of the medium. Fueled by her passion for music and several years of composing her own tunes, she decided to further her musical education at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. She has since bridged the worlds of Indian classical and folk with western contemporary music, creating a sound which she believes has ample scope to evolve in the future.


More than a decade later since Aasma, Vasuda still lingers in the minds of music lovers across the country. Her debut album ‘Attuned Spirits’ which featured Indian raag elements with an essence of rock was one the country’s’ first ever crowd funded music projects. The album was partly recorded in Boston and partly in India, using multiple instruments and featuring multiple musicians from all over the world. The results were more than gratifying, making her the biggest crowdfunding success story for Indian alternative music so far. Vasuda loves to experiment with new genres and sounds, her experiments led her to become a self-taught live looping electronic artist, a rare feat for a solo female artist in India.

Sharma also plays at various festivals with her newly formed band “Sharma & The Besharams” She is in the process of recording her EP with the band soon.

Vasuda is all set to launch her new live act called “Miss V” in which she plans to showcase the electronic production side of her musicality.The music is essentially Electro- Pop with bits of Soul and RnB that you would witness in her singing,plus some vocal looping alongside.
