The image features the text "Live In Concert: Arushi Jain, Sheheraazad & Piu" in bold, white letters. To the left, there is the festival's logo, a stylized flower with the text "Indian Summer Festival 2024." The background shows three artists in a blended, artistic collage: a central figure holding white strings, another person with closed eyes, and a singer with a microphone. The background has a textured beige appearance with turquoise and green circular accents.

Join us for an evening of groundbreaking music at the Indian Summer Festival, featuring three trailblazing voices in contemporary South Asian music. Weaving classical vocal traditions with daring sound experimentations, these artists are forging new sonic landscapes.

Delhi-born, US-based artist Arushi Jain is known for her “heavenly hybrid” of modular synthesis and Indian classical music (Uncut Magazine). Jain deploys sounds that infuse ambient and drone aesthetics into traditional Indian forms. Her 2024 release, Delight, draws from Raga Bageshri and “emanates iridescence through a diversity of electronic and acoustic textures” (Pitchfork). Fresh from touring with Oneohtrix Point Never, the ‘Modular Princess’ is set to captivate Vancouver with her innovative soundscapes.

Making her Canadian debut, Indo-American vocalist Sheherazaad is redefining contemporary folk-pop. Influenced by her bicultural upbringing, Sheherazaad uses Hindi and Urdu to deliver poetic narratives that navigate themes of displacement and identity. Her debut 2024 album, Qasr, produced by Grammy-winner Arooj Aftab, offers an ethereal ode to her South Asian heritage that invites listeners “to forge our own castles, musical queendoms, and impossible dreamlands.” 

Opening the night is Piu, a Nanaimo–based vocalist and composer whose hypnotic performances combine ambient electronics with global rhythms. A lifelong student of Indian classical music, Piu’s forthcoming 2024 debut album promises a fusion of cultural sounds and personal narratives, continuing her exploration of new musical territories. 

Experience these celestial voices at the nexus of tradition and innovation, where sublime, otherworldly soundscapes come to life.
