Singer, Composer, Music director, Actor and Graphic designer

Bindhu Malini Narayanaswamy is an Indian singer, composer, graphic designer. Bindhu has training in both Carnatic and Hindustani classical forms but has constantly strived to explore avenues outside of her strict classical roots to other forms and traditions in search of the pure soul stirring power that music has. This has given form to a more easy yet confident personal style for her as a performer. Suno Bhai is her first music album created in collaboration with Vedanth Bharadwaj. She directed music for feature and documentary films such as Harikatha Prasanaga, Nathicharami, Conversations at the Kumbh, Surey Number Zero and Coral Woman. She and Vedanth co-directed music for Aruvi- a tamil film. Apart from “The Threshold”, Bindhumalini is part of other collaborations like Khusrau ke rang, Akath Kahani and Saath-Saath.
