Talented, original, flexible all-in-1!

“We approached Gabriela, the lead to Red Velvet Sounds, and asked if she’d be willing and able to play with someone that could do the traditional Indian music and sounds. […] We were absolutely blown away with what she came up with! […] All of our guests were absolutely blown away with the band, how well they played together, the Indian and American music, it all was so fantastic. We’re so appreciative and would highly recommend them for any and all events! Gabriela was personable, easy to work with, very flexible, and extremely considerate. All in all, a great experience.”

Classy & Eye-Catching

“A fine match for our diverse crowd of 300 neighborhood residents, professionals and activists gathered in a big tent in the heart of Boston. People sat up front in the chairs nearest the stage and actively enjoyed the music, following the lyrics, the beat and the singer’s sinuous moves. Comments from guests were uniformly enthusiastic.”
