Aki Kumar

The world’s #1 Bollywood Blues artist! Mumbai-born vocalist and harmonica master Aki Kumar is a visionary artist, blending traditional Indian music with a singular brand of Chicago blues, known as “the only Bombay Blues Man.”

In a story that almost sounds like a movie plot, Kumar left India and moved to Silicon Valley in hopes of working as a software engineer, but upon hearing the sound of American blues, his life changed forever.

“He has combined the two disparate genres in an unforced musical fusion never before attempted and has pulled it off with breathtaking aplomb” Living Blues Magazine

“Kumar is on the cutting-edge of blues today.” – Michael Kinsman, San Diego Blues Festival

“Check it out. I wouldn’t steer you wrong.” – Charlie Musselwhite

“Really really really hot stuff!” – Elwood Blues aka Dan Aykroyd
