Literally translated as “Language of the Earth”, Maati Baani is the musical pairing of composer/producer/guitarist Kartik Shah and vocalist/composer Nirali Kartik. Teaming up with other musicians, the twosome places Indian classical music within the different sounds, cultures, languages, and voices of the world. Not only is the result original, but the method of collaboration is as well: it’s all done completely online. The duo’s new video-album series, made with a “no rules, no boundaries” approach, features 70 artists across 20 countries.View Complete Profile
