Nagavalli presents "First and Foremost" a musical collaboration where east meets west featuring Anastasia Hera, Candice Sanders, Faaris, Indrajit Banerjee, Jeska Forsyth, Kalu James, Nelson Aguilar (Como Las Movies), Patricia Vonne, Promqueen, Quentin Arispe and Tomar Williams. Returning to the State Theater after a sold-out show here in 2023, Nagavalli brings her innovative fusion of musical elements and rhythms, featuring her signature indo-fusion sound and lyrics that speak of universal themes like spirituality, love, human connection, and resilience. Nagavalli’s release show for her amazing new album ‘Numinosum’ will be one of my favorite concerts of 2023,” said Jody Denberg of KUTX. “She is less a performer and more a spirit taking flight through her music and players. It was proclaimed Nagavalli Day (City of Austin) at Stateside at the Paramount that evening. Every day Nagavalli shares her music is her day - and our blessing.” Nagavalli was recently nominated for "Best of World Music" in the 2024 Austin Chronicle Music polls.
