Following the release of his critically acclaimed debut album Karmic Blues Ajay Srivastav returns this year with his follow up album Powerless.
Ajay Srivastav is a London based singer songwriter who plays a genre-bending mix of Indian Folk, Blues and Americana with lyrics that explore issues of identity, loss and spirituality. His performances have been described as 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.
As a musician Ajay has worked with artists as diverse as Jamiroquai, Gregory Isaacs, Zakir Hussain and Bollywood legend Shah Rukh Khan. Ajay has performed internationally from live venues such as the Jazz Cafe and the Queen Elizabeth Hall to festivals like Roskilde Dam Square and WOMAD.
