Ranked amongst the Top 10 Female Vocals and World Music artists at the 2015-16 Austin Music Awards, Nagavalli’s music is described as “East-Indian Soul with delicate touches of Pop, Rock, Trance and pure Eastern tradition”. The power and emotion in Valli’s voice, combined with the effortlessness with which she blends Eastern overtones with Western melodies make Valli’s music refreshingly unique and yet, familiar at the same time.

Nagavalli grew up in Mumbai, India, speaks her native language of Telugu at home and is well-versed in Hindi and English. She moved to Austin, Texas after finishing graduate school in Florida.

Nagavalli’s music has brought together artists from a multitude of genres ranging from Latin and American rock and jazz musicians to East-Indian and Middle-Eastern classical and folk musicians in the studio and in her live performances. Her debut album titled “Eastern Soul” was released at the historic Cactus Cafe (Austin, TX) in 2012. The album features several Austin greats such as Mitch Watkins, Pat Mastelotto, Oliver Rajamani, Roberto Riggio, Richard Bowden, AJ and Omar Vallejo amongst others.

Nagavalli is also well-known for her rendition of Indian meditative & spiritual music. Nagavalli has recorded with several artists and bands in Austin including Oliver Rajamani, Atash, Govinda and Ginger Leigh and, has performed at prestigious venues such as the Cactus Cafe and One World Theatre. Valli also performs regularly as a featured vocalist with the Jazz/World music band ‘A Is Red’ in Austin. Valli has lent her voice to guided-visualization CDs created by hypnotherapist, Anita Jung, and collaborated with Austin’s hall-of-fame Indian classical dancer, Anuradha Naimpally. Nagavalli was a featured artist at Austin’s premium world-music festival, WOBEONFEST, in 2015 and has toured with Gypsy Sound Revolution (Gypsy Kings alumni).

In 2012, Nagavalli composed the music for a Bollywood-inspired Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’ play performed by the Austin Shakespeare Company.
