The Joshi Show

This is a little pet project of mine, where I cover Western pop songs in Indian classical style. Some love it, most hate it. I call it, "The Joshi Show".

UW Awaaz

UW Awaaz is the premier South-Asian fusion a cappella group at the University of Washington. I joined the team in 2014, and left after graduating in 2018. I've highlighted a few of my favorite songs below!

For my final year on the team, we recorded our fourth studio album, which I am in the process of locating.

An exciting project this year was Expressions, which was a collaborative showcase with Natya UW, the University of Washington's premier Indian classical dance team. We also recorded our third studio album, Avrutti.

This year, we competed at Anahat 2015 and placed 3rd, which was UW Awaaz's first ever competitive top-3 placing! We also recorded our second studio album, Alankaar.


This was the first year we did studio recordings, producing our first album Studio Sessions.
