Synopsis

Performing and music-making has been Varsha’s most favourite thing to do. And when you throw in the quirkiness and creativity of each bandmate, it results in fun on and off stage.

 

Pushing the boundaries of traditions with its synergy of styles—from jazz, classical Indian and popular Indian music—Varsha wants to bring you, the audience, through a genre- bending journey as they continue to discover new musical terrains and possibilities. The band takes much joy in performing their songs and would love to share that very joy with the audience.

 

You will get to hear Varsha’s new originals which have been composed specifically for this performance and at the same time you will also hear a couple of well-known tunes.

 

The debut EP was produced with the support of the National Arts Council of Singapore. Varsha is very thankful for their support!

Artist Information

Varsha

Instagram | Facebook | YouTube

Varsha is not your average group of performers. With rhythmic music as the foundation for compelling improvisations, this young group of four musicians delivers exactly what its name promises—a soul-drenching shower of music styles ranging from jazz and Indian classical to popular Indian music.

 

The diversity of musical traditions that Sai Vigneshwar, Sai Akileshwar, Tony Makarome and Md Noor represent is paralleled by each musician’s maturity in his respective genre. Varsha is a synergy of styles. With musical roots that are primarily Indian, the group finds inspiration in the likes of Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Mandolin U Srinivas, the Mahavishnu Orchestra and more.

 

Each song that Varsha presents is both challenging and thrilling for the musicians. Varsha’s originals are a pure conversation between five musicians of different specialities. The music belongs to, and yet, goes beyond traditions. Having performed at two sold-out performances in Singapore International Festival of Arts 2019, Varsha has spurred on to record their debut EP which is slated to be released soon. Through evolution, exploration and creativity, Varsha is set to ensure there will be no dry spell in the music scene.
