Ajay Srivastav Karmic Blues
Ajay Srivastav is a London based singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who plays a genre-bending mix of Indian Folk, Blues and Americana with lyrics that explore issues of identity, loss and spirituality. In an age of cultural division and societal conflict, his performances have been described as raw, passionate, healing and uplifting.
Ajay's laid-back style transcends musical borders with a sound that flows from the banks of Delta Blues which influenced him as a child to the sacred river of the Ganges where he learnt raags from the Gurus in his father's hometown of Varanasi – the holy city of India. Blending these influences, he came back with what he calls Karmic Blues.
