    Roopa In Flux is a groundbreaking, carnatic inspired band led by Roopa Mahadevan. With each member having backgrounds and influences in multiple genres of music, from jazz to hip hop, the sounds combine in a way that is both familiar and completely unexpected. About Roopa: Roopa Mahadevan is versatile among Carnatic (South Indian Classical) vocalists, bringing her powerful, emotive voice to explorations in genre, presentation, and theater. Trained under Asha Ramesh and Suguna Varadachari (under Fulbright), she has performed extensively in the Carnatic world (Chennai’s Music Academy, Cleveland Thyagaraja Aradhana) and collaborates frequently with artists in creative/jazz and R&B/soul genres. Based in New York City, Roopa leads her crossover ensemble, Roopa In Flux, directs the choir Navatman Music Collective, performs with Brooklyn Raga Massive, and is sought-after by leading dancer/choreographers. Roopa is a featured soloist on the Grammy Award-winning album Calling All Dawns. About Erika Oba: Erika Oba is a composer, pianist/flutist, and educator based in the SF Bay Area.
