Listen to Nistha live on NPR

When you think of Indian classical music, you probably don't expect to hear beat box, or strains of jazz, and even rock. But that's exactly what Nistha Raj is all about. The violinist is mixing classical Hindustani music with modern sounds to bring it to a new generation of music lovers. ”

— Michel Martin of NPR's Tell Me More

Nistha Raj with NSO string quartet, The Last Stand Quartet
