Geetu Hinduja is from Mumbai, India. She is a folk singer and guitarist in various genres - alternative, soft rock, pop, indie. Geetu tells vivid stories that transport the listener to the landscape of her mind. Her music is music for the soul. Training included Indian classical music under Neela Bhagwat, bhajans under P.D. Jalota, and with jazz vocalist and composer Mili Bermejo. She sang with the Mumbai choir Stop Gaps. Her music reflects her hopes and dreams, the struggle to belong, and her identity as a woman in Indian society. From Rumi’s poetry to reflections of Mumbai’s street life, from Adi Shankaracharya’s contemplation of the self to the hypocrisy of modern life – all find expression in her powerful voice and memorable melodies. Dancing Free was released in 1993 and, 19 years later, she released her Hope Faith Time & Me (2012), showcasing her musical and philosophical evolution. That album was dedicated to her sister Jyoti, who died fighting breast cancer in 2010. Geetu has toured, since 2009, performing originals and covers of Joan Baez, Natalie Merchant, Dido, Suzanne Vega, Bob Dylan, Alanis Morissette, and Bonnie Raitt. She performed at Kala Ghoda Festival in Mumbai, Jadhavgadh Music Festival, 18 Degrees Festival, Shillong, live for Anita Dongre (LFW, 2014), Celebrate Bandra Festival, and the International Aids Conference, Blue Frog in Mumbai, TLR Café in Delhi, Max Mueller Bhavan for Pune Jazz Club, NGMA, and the Jaipur Literature Festival 2014.
