Unnati (it means ‘prosperity’ in Hindi) has the gift of charisma, of enigmatic presence: from jazz clubs to international festivals, Westminster Abbey to the Royal Albert Hall, her live shows are notable for the ways in which they uplift, Unnati’s gift of curiosity: Her music’s capacity for healing.
Indigo Soul, Unnati’s 2020 debut album, continues to receive plaudits and capacity-star reviews and ‘Teri Yaad Aati Hain’ – a Sufi song previously selected for the Buddha-Bar: The Ultimate Experience box set – are on heavy rotation.
Indigo Soul was the stunning result of a career that has unfurled like a lotus flower, right from its roots in Unnati’s musical childhood. One of two daughters born to the renowned Nitai Dasgupta (1934 – 2003), a Bengali vocalist, teacher, performer and recording artist.
Unnati has since been the opening act on the main stage at the 2019 WOMAD UK festival, appeared at the London Barbican for the Darbar Festival and sold out the Pheasantry on the Kings Road as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival.
