Asli Baat was founded in 2008 at the University of Southern California as a way for singers to share their enthusiasm for South Asian and Western music. Since then, we have grown into an award-winning performance group, placing 1st at Anahat - the annual South Asian a cappella competition at UC Berkeley - in 2009 and then again in 2012. We also host Mehfil, our annual showcase of South Asian a cappella at USC.
Asli Baat blends both classical and contemporary South Asian music with Western musical styles including Hip Hop, R&B, Pop and American Top 40 songs. We recently released our latest EP, "ABCD", in 2015. Check it out on iTunes or Spotify, or on our Music page! You can also watch some of our previous performances on YouTube.
Our aim is to provide singers and musicians of both South Asian and Western musical backgrounds with a platform to showcase their unique talents. For more information or to enquire about performance availability, contact Us.
