Saturday, October 15th: Falu
Falu is internationally recognized for her rare ability to seamlessly blend a signature modern inventive style with a formidable Indian classically-shaped vocal talent.
In her early years in Bombay, singer Falu (aka Falguni Shah) was trained rigorously in the Jaipur musical tradition and in the Benares style of Thumrie, honing her talent for up to 16 hours a day. She later continued studying under the late sarangi/vocal master Ustad Sultan Khan, and continues to study with the legendary Smt. Kishori Amonkar (Jaipur style).
Falu moved to the States in 2000 and was appointed as a visiting lecturer at Tufts University where she taught Indian Classical Music for 2 years.In early 2015 Falu was named one of the top 20 most influential Global Indian Women in India’s Economic Times. Falu is currently touring her new project; Falu’s Bollywood Orchestra. On March 12th 2016, Falu sold out her newest show for kids called “Falu’s Bazaar” at Carnegie Hall, that includes all original songs written in English and Hindi accompanied by an activity book written by Falu.
