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 several musicians from across 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 becoming a self-taught live looping electronic artiste, a rare feat for a solo female artist in India. Sharma also plays at various festivals with her band “Sharma & The Besharams”. The band released their first EP titled ‘Bedesi” last year and is currently working on their 2nd EP.
