New 1world EP "Blue Horizon" now available!

I had the good fortune to work with my close friend and uber-talented composer Enrique Ponce on this duo project, which we call 1world. It's ethnic chillout music – downtempo beats, moody synths, and flavors of world musical styles from around the globe. We had a great time collaborating on this project while we were at Berklee together and we're happy to finally release these tracks!

Our first EP BLUE HORIZON is now available on your favorite digital music platform!

"Sur Olakhiche" Teaser

माझा मराठीची बोलू कौतुके। परि अमृतातेहि पैजासी जिंके। ऐसी अक्षरे रसिके। मेळवीन।।

SUR OLAKHICHE is my newest musical production... featuring Marathi classics with a newly imagined sound. Your favorite Marathi songs, with new voices, new instruments, and new arrangements!

We had a successful first show earlier this year at the Berry Center in Cypress, Texas. The magnitude of response and outpouring of appreciation for the concert has been absolutely overwhelming from the local audience as well as the guest of honor at the event, Avadhoot Gupte.

Special thanks to Tan Truong at West Side Recording for the video work.

"Malavun Taak Deep"

Super excited to see the release of this track, one of my favorite collaborations in recent months!

Thanks so much to Saili Oak for the wonderful opportunity to produce and arrange this track with some truly amazing collaborators including the illustrious Ragini Shankar on violin. A remake of one of my all-time favorite Marathi classics... enjoy!

The SUR OLAKHICHE band and I have been hard at work rehearsing since last fall. We are super excited to go on stage for the first show on February 12! All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting Houston Maharashtra Mandal's Vastu project - a dream to build a Maharashtrian community center in the greater Houston area.

Don't miss this show - it's sure to be a one of a kind production. :) See you all from the Berry Center stage on February 12th!
