INDIA 2018

We were invited to perform at the Udaipur World Music Festival. During our time in India, we traveled to New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Udaipur for a series of concerts and workshops. While in Delhi, we recorded a live-in-the-studio music video featuring local musicians.  Stay tuned for the video series coming soon.

PRESS

"Parts guitar-laden spy theme and swanky brass-led swagger, It Was You shows the impressive power and atmosphere Shubh produces in his songwriting, culminating in an excellent second-half where the brass and guitar work combine for a melodically riveting listen."

Shubh Saran - Lauren Desberg

"It’s the kind of sleek, thrilling progressive jazz with plenty of hooks and groove to it....Hmayra is a confident and striking full-length debut for the young guitarist, one that should put him on the radar for fans of proggy modern jazz."

"Saran is a first-rate composer and a tasteful guitarist who makes a very impressive showing on [his debut] album."

"[Hmayra] features rich climaxes as well as intermittent valleys and peaks, with Saran’s solos veering in and out like a pedestrian weaving through a packed sidewalk in Bangalore."

"There's a simple, straightforward goodness to these songs that are a pleasure to hear. His intermingling of his Indian heritage with modern jazz sounds show great skill without insisting upon itself."

Shubh Saran - Lauren Desberg

"[Saran's] exposure to Western music helped him come up with a unique style that is a mix of classical and contemporary Indian music, modern jazz, neo-soul, and rock."
