Composer and vocal artist Samita Sinha combines tradition with experiment—combining visceral energy with deep grounding in North Indian classical music, embodied practices, and folk and ritual music in several languages—to create new forms of sound and performance that explore inheritance and interior, psychic space. She has received commissions from Asia Society, Performance Space 122 and Invisible Dog Art Center, the Rubin Museum, and Gibney, and awards from National Endowment of the Arts, the Fulbright Foundation, National Performance Network, New York State Council on the Arts, and the Herb Alpert/Ucross Residency Prize. Sinha teaches voice extensively, including at Princeton University, Swarthmore College, Centro Nacional de las Artes in Mexico City, and Womankind (formerly New York Asian Women's Center).
