A fearless, charismatic personality and natural-born storyteller, her mission is to create art that blends her Indian roots with her American upbringing. Her music is a sonic bridge between East and West that fuses the rhythms she absorbed as a trained classical Indian dancer with her love for hip-hop.

Emerging as a disruptive force in hip-hop in her own right, Kumari released her debut EP, The Come Up, in 2016. Her solo material has received acclaim and attention from the likes of Billboard, Paper Magazine, Idolator and Complex and has been featured overseas by the likes of Rolling Stone, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ in India.
