When & Where
Singer-Songwriter/Professional Indian Kuchipudi Dancer
Contemporary Indie Rock with Indian Carnatic music
Bhavana Reddy’s music is an interesting blend of the Indian concept of melodies and the western concept of harmony held by a string of poetry. Her melodies involuntarily chosen from the 72 parent ragas (scales) of Indian Carnatic music sung to chords/harmonies of blues/jazz/pop/rock/folk influence create an ethereal and exotic vibe with strong emotional vocals. Described by listeners in the lines of Fiona Apple, Kimra and the like, Bhavana’s sound is similar but with an Indian twist. Her performances are visually in sync with theatrical/story telling nature of Kuchipudi dance. As a whole Bhavana's music represents the essence of rich Indian heritage in a language known to you.
Backing her is a band of musicians hailing from diverse cultures including a drummer Dennis Nilsson from Sweden, Bassist Kevin Lambertucci from Venezuela, Keyboardist Duy Tran from Vietnam, Guitarists Hermes Reis from Brazil, Mac Mason from USA and Violinist Sam Valdez from United States.
Growing up daughter of world-renowned Kuchipudi dancing couple Padmabhushans Dr. Raja Radha Reddy in New Delhi, Bhavana started training and performing at an early age of 4. Bhavana learnt about the ups and downs of an artist’s life very early indeed. Held in high regard by the who’s who in India as the talented daughter of well-respected dancing couple, she had her first foreign tour at the age of 7 followed by many more.
Her life, out of the ordinary, out of step with her fellow classmates, stirred up emotions concerning her relationships with loved ones and strangers in her travels around the world. Her lyrics are examples of feelings complex yet common to us all expressed beautifully through poetry.
Currently she is recording her EP “Tangled in Emotions’ scheduled for release in Summer 2013 and is performing in the LA Area.
