Harini Iyer

World music-Carnatic/ Soul singer with a subtle hint of Jazz and RnB

Origin Story

Musically speaking, Harini's goal is to collaborate, and largely, combine music + languages+ movement. This led her to start "red earth and pouring rain” with a guitarist and friend, Abhijit Nath; a jazz-influenced world music duo with strong influences from Carnatic, Persian and Latin American styles. Having performed about 10 shows across India in 6 months, she was still searching for something when she got selected for a 2 week- South Asian Music Residency ( SAMUR 2019) funded by Goethe Ins Read more...

Musically speaking, Harini's goal is to collaborate, and largely, combine music + languages+ movement. This led her to start "red earth and pouring rain” with a guitarist and friend, Abhijit Nath; a jazz-influenced world music duo with strong influences from Carnatic, Persian and Latin American styles. Having performed about 10 shows across India in 6 months, she was still searching for something when she got selected for a 2 week- South Asian Music Residency ( SAMUR 2019) funded by Goethe Institute, Chennai to promote cross- cultural contemporary music. That widened her collaborative experiences and inspired her to release two singles this year. Harini is a classically trained Carnatic vocalist, a composer and an arranger from Chennai/ Boston. "I’ve moved a lot since I was a kid. There was a point where I had studied in 11 schools in 10 years. haha. So, that might give a little idea of how many things I’ve been influenced by, both musically and otherwise. I like singing and listening to RnB, Neo Soul and Jazz usually and also some Middle Eastern and Latin music. I was in the Balkan Choir at Berklee and really enjoyed the vocal projection techniques I learned and found them similar to Indian Vedic Hymn chanting that I was surrounded by, growing up. My vocal style is a potpourri of all of these influences and I try to bring the core of each of these elements through lessons and dialogue with people from different cultures from around the world."
