Childhood by Aditi Ramesh

ADITI RAMESH is a jazz/blues Carnatic vocalist, songwriter, bandleader and producer based out of Mumbai. She is known for her strong hold on tonal modulations and her ability to mix classical Carnatic music with jazz. Formerly a corporate lawyer, since quitting in the end of 2016, her musicality has experienced exponential growth in her soundscape.

After performing at NH7 Weekender Pune in 2017, she released her debut EP, ‘Autocorrect’, and went on to a multi-city tour of the EP. Autocorrect has been listed as one of the top 10 EPs of 2017 by Rolling Stone India.

‘Autocorrect’ is an exploration of the space between genres. Fusion is often about showcasing a range of styles and techniques. What Aditi attempts to do with this EP is begin to find common overlaps between Indian and Western musical traditions and use these spaces to seamlessly transition between styles; to in a sense ‘fuse’ them. The lyrical content is meant to be relatable, at times using Aditi’s everyday experiences as a lens through which macro-level ideas and the larger picture and are viewed. The sound is influenced by soul, jazz, blues, Carnatic, funk and folk music.

Post ‘Autocorrect’, Aditi released her single ‘You’re not so Wise now’ which has been listed by A Humming Heart as one of the top 15 singles of 2018 so far. Apart from her solo project, she plays keys and sings with Ladies Compartment and Jazztronaut and is a part of acapella and beatbox ensemble Voctronica.
