“Goddess-like” Indian classical vocalist Bombay Jayashri (Sydney Morning Herald) captivates audiences with a distinct performance style rooted in the South Indian Carnatic tradition and layered with myriad colors. After catapulting to the global stage with her Oscar-nominated Tamil lullaby in Life of Pi, the singer, accompanied here by percussion, violin, and tambura, continues to bridge East and West through an artful embodiment of the human emotive experience.
