Avanti is on a mission to create music that challenges societal norms
Bombay and Boston based artist and creator Avanti thrives at the intersection of pop and soul. She is on a mission to create music that challenges societal norms. Avanti’s music bridges social impact and aims to reclaim the way young girls see themselves, around the world. With songs in English, Hindi, Marathi and Punjabi on the way – empowerment and global sounds are key.
Drawing inspiration from her background in Indian classical and soul music, her sound serves as the intersection for hyphenated identities.
Nominated for ‘Best Actress in a leading role’ for her portrayal of Agnes in ‘Agnes of God’ at the National Theater Awards in India, Avanti’s passion for being on stage spans disciplines. Avanti has spoken and performed at the United Nations and TEDx conferences, and has performed at venues and festivals across India, the US and Southeast Asia. She released the first virtual reality music video in all of South Asia for her single ‘I Like’, and has since released several tracks including a virtually shot, cross continental video for, ‘The Long Way.’
When she’s not making music, she’s finding ways to encourage young people to build their confidence, take charge of their health and become active community members. Avanti graduated from Harvard in 2020 with a degree in Psychology and Global/Health Policy, and was the first to pursue a dual degree with the Berklee College of Music.
