Celebrated for her powerful vocal and expressive renderings, Shubha Mudgal is one of India’s most versatile and sought-after vocalists who is able to effortlessly straddle genres as diverse as Hindustani classical and popular Indian music. Shubha and her ensemble, featuring Sudhir Nayak (harmonium), Srijan Mahajan (drums), Aneesh Pradhan (tabla), Anil Chawla (keyboards), Aditya Balani (guitar) and Gaurav Balani (bass), perform musical crossovers that blends elements from Indian classical and folk music, jazz and popular music.

Inspired by poetry from the Indian subcontinent, Koshish’s music is at once “powerful yet restrained; contemporary yet rooted in tradition” (The Hindu)

Multilayered texts of medieval Indian poets as well as contemporary literary giants such as Faiz Ahmad Faiz and Gulzar lend depth to their expression and emotion to their music. In addition to original compositions created especially for the project, the ensemble also presents popular tracks that are closely identified with Shubha Mudgal.
