Harshitha Krishnan is a Grammy-nominated recording and performing artist, music educator, and social justice advocate of Indian origin from Lagos, Nigeria.
Hailing from a background in European classical music and growing up listening to Indian film music, she arrived at Berklee and embraced soul, R&B, alternative, jazz, folk, and other world music styles, creating her own distinctive and eclectic sound: a fusion of Indian and contemporary western elements. Performing her original music as well as that of others, Harshitha creates a singular musical experience that takes listeners on a journey of unfiltered emotions, exploring sounds and textures from around the world.
An artist with a vision to affect positive change in attitudes towards women, mental health, and LGBTQIA+ and race issues, Harshitha aligns her social, philosophical, and political views with the nature of the music she performs.
"I want students to come away from my classes and lessons with tools to navigate any musical situation with confidence and skills that will ensure their success in all future endeavors."
"Having trained in European classical music and built a professional career in performing and writing contemporary Indian and jazz fusion styles, my skill set is wide and I have a more fluid and open-minded approach to learning, teaching, and collaborating. Structure for the sake of compliance doesn't inspire success and so I take a less structured and more customized approach to each student or group of students I teach. I believe all students have the ability to thrive with the right guidance and inspiration, and I encourage rebellion and creative thinking when it comes to solving issues that they run into."
