Supriya Nagarajan is a vocalist of the Carnatic classical tradition. Born in Bombay, Supriya has studied Carnatic music since the age of 5. Now living in Dewsbury, UK, Supriya founded Manasamitra in 2005, since when she has collaborated with musicians from different genres and disciplines. She strives to create inclusive music which explores the relationship between her practice and her country of residence, now called home.
Over the past 15 years Supriya has led Manasamitra as Artistic Director often creating music in response to different art forms. Her niche is to work in unusual spaces and she has been commissioned to create music responses to artists Andy Goldsworthy, David Nash and other sculptors exhibiting at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. She also worked closely with a Cultural Olympiad project Stanza Stones exploring the Yorkshire Moors, the poetry of Simon Armitage and Indian classical music.
From this work, she received the National Microsoft Diversity Awards for her contribution to promoting diversity and access to the arts.
