She is a proud voting member of the Recording Academy (Grammys) and became the first Indian born jazz composer to premier work at Carnegie Hall.

Critics have praised her work : All About Jazz hailed her first album as, “An exceptionally fine debut” and her piano technique as “supple and lush”; and Skope Magazine called “The Book of Ragas” as a jazz sound they have never heard before, and a “truly ear-opening” experience.
Her work is available on CD, Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Play and more.
