Meera Desai Quintet kicks off our special Women’s Day weekend on the 6th of March with songs that are made from the minds and hearts of women.

Meera is a singer and a songwriter currently based in Ahmedabad. Born and raised in New York, she received training in western classical and jazz throughout her early years and teens. She then moved to Ahmedabad two years ago where she began further studies of Hindustani Classical music. First studying with Pta. Tripti Mukherjee in New Jersey, she now studies with Shri Vikas Parikh, both students of Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj.

Her lyrical songwriting style and thoughtful compositions stem from her inspirations: artists like The Swell Season, Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones. She has been professionally touring her original set in India for the past few years, as well as with Heat Sink, a progressive rock band.

She worked with Raag Sethi to release an original EP of lyrical folk and jazz-inspired pop, titled ‘I’ve Never Been Happier to Be Lost,’ from which a few songs were featured on Apple music’s top playlists, and were nominated for multiple awards. Her aim is to tell her stories, listen to others’ stories, and immerse herself in the ocean that is music. In addition, she volunteers at Compass Box Studio, where she serves as a sessions vocalist, helps with communications, curates the spoken word live sessions.

Meera Desai – Vocals
Harmish Joshi – Saxophone
Sreenath Sreenivasan – Drums
Raag Sethi – Bass
