Cafe Turquoise Cottage
Aditi Ramesh is an exemplary vocalist, songwriter and producer with a herculean voice complimented by a range of techniques and tonal modulations. Having been inspired by the blues, jazz and traditional carnatic music in which she has been trained in her childhood, her organic exploration into different genres ever since has been a hallmark of her development. Formerly a corporate lawyer at AZB, the top law firm in the country, since quitting in the end of 2016, her musicality has experienced exponential growth in her soundscape, with her performance incorporating electronic drums and live keys, in which she has been classically trained in western music theory for about a decade.
Pakshee is a 6 member outfit based out of New Delhi, India. Their unique blend of music falls under the umbrella of World Music, within which they incorporate their various influences such as Jazz, Funk, Pop and Rock among others. With a two vocalist formula (Hindustani and Carnatic) for diversity, the melodies are refreshingly catchy and the rhythms are absolutely off the hook.
