Immerse Yourself

By: Laurie Gallardo

Perhaps it’s the aura of mystique and the spectrum of different energies emanating from the distinctive sounds of traditional Eastern music that draw one in. Nagavalli takes it a step further, bringing East and West together with her own unique musical repertoire that continuously leaves audiences breathless.

The Austin-based songwriter creates Eastern soul on her album Immersion, which is what the experience is all about. It’s the opportunity to immerse oneself in the trancelike waves of Nagavalli’s extraordinary style combined with small touches of pop, rock and Eastern melodies.

The live experience cannot be denied. See Nagavalli perform tomorrow night at the Cactus Cafe, 2247 Guadalupe. Doors open at 8 p.m., and Barbara Nesbitt starts the show at 8:30 p.m. Remember to get your tickets early; the room fills up very quickly. Recommended.
