AWAAZ : "Voice" in Hindi
UW Awaaz is a South-Asian fusion a cappella group which takes songs from South-Asian and Western culture and creates harmonious arrangements of all varieties. Founded in 2009 by UW alumni Joyita Banerjee and Pratyusha Banik, Awaaz has followed in the tradition of other South-Asian a cappella groups while continuing to innovate the genre by incorporating elements from different cultures and media. From classic Bollywood hits by A.R. Rahman to popular American songs from different genres, we aim to cultivate fusions that provoke emotions of joy and nostalgia, while appealing to audiences of all musical backgrounds!
Since its founding, UW Awaaz has performed at competitions across the country as well as at popular UW-sanctioned events, such as Desi Dhamaka, ASC Talent Show, and FIUTS CultureFest!
We invite you to browse our website, become familiar with our group, and join us soon at an upcoming performance!
Once an Awaazian, always an Awaazian!
