Her music has influences from guitarists like Victor Wooten, Jaco Pastorius, Abraham Laboriel, Mark King and many more. She is indeed an incredible artist!
The 27 year old charming guitarist is exploring her musical talent more and more. Her flawless and sonorous acoustic/ jazz compositions are mostly about love and ambitions. Her songs are mostly influenced by Norah Jones and carry the grittiness as that of Carole King. She's a full time musician and has given her best to every track she came up with. Appreciable!
3. Aditi Veena/ Ditty
New Delhi based Aditi Veena is another guitarist that has been showcasing her talent wandering and playing on the streets of Nepal. She has been constantly shuttling between her home and Sri Lanka.

4. Bianca Love
This 21 year old talented lady was born and brought up in a city that anybody would kill to live in. However, she moved from New Orleans to Mumbai in 2011. She continued with her composing task that she was working on for her debut EP 'Shady Sunrise’ which got released last year in India. Her music constantly switches from one genre to other, while her billowy voice wins hearts.
5. Shreya Bhattacharya

She has learnt music from the Swarnabhoomi Academy Of Music. She along with her band members- Avishek Dey and Srinjay Banerjee are breathing new life into the jazz scene in India.
