Maati Baani

Literally meaning ‘The Language of The Earth’, Maati Baani is composed of the creative duo Kartik Shah and Nirali Kartik. Always looking to incorporate diverse elements into their music, the band explores vivid sonic landscapes, both Indian and Western, and collaborate, both in person and digitally, with musicians across genres and borders to create a fresh and unique sound they can proudly call their own. At the heart of their unique sound is diversity through collaboration, and their online project, The Music Yantra, involved 50 musicians from 20 countries.

Be it folk, jazz, world music, blues or rock, Maati Baani seamlessly blends these styles to bring together diverse listeners from across genres and nationalities. Their new video-album series is the first of its kind in the world, featuring more than 70 artistes across 20 countries collaborating with them via internet.
