Leading an international cadre of musicians, New York based, Chennai born singer, composer and violinist Harini “Rini” Raghavan creates her own version of Indian electronica. Harini draws from her formal training in Carnatic music and work at Berklee College of Music in Electronic Production to bring together sounds and music of her birthplace in India and her home in the US. An experienced performer and recording artist, she has recorded and performed with Grammy winning composers A.R.Rahman and Bill Whelan, and headlined prestigious festivals and venues in US and India, including Boston Symphony Hall, Lincoln Center and the United Nations General Assembly. Rini has released two EP's worldwide - 'Kural' and 'Alone in the Blue' - on Spotify, Google Play, Amazon and other digital outlets to critical acclaim, including a feature in Rolling Stone India.
“With her powerful, often ferocious mezzo-soprano, carnatically-influenced violin lines, Raghavan led the group through a dynamic set that blended Trans-Siberian Orchestra pomp with distantly macabre early ELO and even more towering cinematics.” - New York Music Daily
"Chennai-bred singer and violinist Harini S Raghavan has made her mark in New York, (she) jams on violins as well as electronic effects with a band setup backing her on songs such as 'Thiruvizha' and 'Fear.' "- Rolling Stone India
"Rini stirs just right chords to get you tuned to their music!"- Songdew
