Join us for an unforgettable evening of music with Falu, internationally recognized vocalist and New Yorker.  Falu will perform an intimate set with her quartet, blending traditional Indian Classical music with a range of modern styles and genres, while incorporating the stories that have impacted her journey in music.  The set will include her original crowd-moving songs like Rabba, O Lal MeriHori and a range of folk tunes from India. 

Falu is a GRAMMY award winning, internationally recognized vocalist, composer and educator known for her rare ability to seamlessly blend a signature modern inventive style with a formidable Indian classically-shaped vocal talent. Falu’s subsequent career in the States had led to a series of brilliant and high profile collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, Wyclef Jean, Philip Glass, Ricky Martin, Blues Traveler and A. R. Rahman amongst others. She was appointed Carnegie Hall’s ambassador of Indian Music in 2006, where her shows at Zankel Hall have consistently sold out. Falu’s highlight performances include the 2022 GRAMMY Premiere Ceremony as well as for former President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House State Dinner.  Described by The New York Times as “East and West, ancient and modern” and one of the 20 most influential global Indian women by the Economic Times, Falu continues to record and perform globally, and serves as the Board of Governor for the Recording Academy’s NY Chapter.  Watch a brief clip about Falu here.

Soul of the City: Live @ MCNY is a series of intimate concerts featuring a wide range of New York City artists, both upcoming and veteran, performing acoustic sets and sharing the personal stories behind their music.
