Event Details

The first Indian-born jazz composer to premier work at Carnegie Hall, Charu has been playing the piano since the age of five, and performing since the age of nine. She won an international piano competition at the age of 15. Her recently-released "Book of Ragas" is a completely original sound in jazz using the standard trio with a Sufi singer, which six-time Grammy award winner Arturo O'Farrill has described as "singular." "The New American Songbook" that 'is a nod to a more classic sound in jazz' was released in a double bill at Weill Recital Hall on Dec. 20th, 2019. Recently, she became a three-time finalist in the International Singer Songwriters Association (ISSA) Awards for Band Single of the Year (Bluesy), Band of the Year, and U.S. Female Songwriter of the Year. The awards will be announced in Atlanta in August, 2021. Her "Book of Ragas" has been praised by critics as a new sound in jazz, and won two Global Music Awards. She is a proud voting member of the Recording Academy (Grammys). In 2021, she debuts the "Book of Ragas, Vol. 2" and a New Age album.
