RINI: Indian Electronica and Art Rock (2020 Summer Amphitheater Series)
Leading an international cadre of musicians, New York-based, Chennai-born singer, composer and violinist Harini “Rini” Raghavan creates her own version of Indian electronica. Harini draws from her formal training in classical Carnatic music, with its emphasis on vocal performance, and work at Berklee College of Music in Electronic Production to bring together sounds and music of her birthplace in India and her home in the US. An experienced performer and recording artist, she has recorded and performed with Grammy-winning artists A.R. Rahman, Bill Whelan, Gil Goldstein, and Idan Raichel, headlining festivals and venues in the U.S., Europe, and India. Rini has released three EPs worldwide to critical acclaim, including a feature in Rolling Stone India, Republic of Jazz, World Music Central, and a nomination for the Independent Music Awards 2019 in the World Beat Category. You can find RINI on Facebook and Instagram.
