“Gandharva music is universal.
It is at home with every land, with every man, with every society.
It is the language of bliss, the science and art of bliss, the song of Nature.”
– Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Transcendent. Soulful. Illuminating.
Reshma Srivastava dazzles audiences with her soulful compositions and energized interpretations of the ancient ragas. Replicating the intimate sounds and frequencies of nature, she offers concertgoers a unique, transcendent experience.
“It is hard to describe in words how beautiful this was. After listening to Reshma play traditional Indian evening ragas with the evening breeze blowing and birds talking in background, I felt restored clarity. I felt centered. Things that have been weighing on my mind were put back in perspective as very small in the grand scheme of things. Things seemed as they should be, and I felt more in tune with the universe.” – Miche McClendon
“PURE SITAR. A marvelous concert. Sublime energy. Opened hearts. Relaxed minds. Reshma Srivastava: A shining treasure under a full moon.”– Sherri Remez
“The experience of listening to Reshma play sitar is really like a breeze that blows into your soul. It turned me into a leaf and I just danced across the sky in the current her music created and floated. Amazing!”
“Reshma Srivastava is Saraswati incarnate! One of the most remarkable sitar players next to Ravi Shankar. Listening to her play is transformational–a sound like no other.” –DeeDee
