About Us

Shruti is a South Asian band based in Seattle. Shruti is one of the pioneering music bands that provides a channel for live musical entertainment of South Asian music in the US, while bringing awareness to socio-economic issues and raising funds for non-profit organizations.

Shruti performs light music ranging from semi-classical songs to the latest Bollywood hits and has bedazzled audiences for several years in and around the Northwest.

Shruti has been performing live shows to spread the desi mainstream music and helped raise funds for CRY (Child Relief and You), SICF(Seattle International Children's Festival), AID(Association for India Development)PPI (People for Progress in India), Northwest Folklife Festival, and many other non-profit organizations.

Performing live shows is not a profession for anyone in the band, it has been a labor of love for music and passion for a link with the community that has brought the band together each year.

Shruti & CRY were a pioneers in the Seattle area Indian community to partner together to bring music/entertainment for the audiences with a view toward giving back to the society.  Over the years, many bands have adopted this model.  We have often helped non-profit organizations raise money in the tens of thousands of dollars.100% of the funds raised are given to the charity organization.

Shruti would like to thank all the members of the audience and the fans that have emailed us so many times. Without the generosity and support of our viewers, we would not be able to share the music or help the charities raise money for their respective causes.
