Hailed as "a fiery alto saxophonist and a prolific composer...," (Star Tribune, Minneapolis) Aakash Mittal is emerging as a fresh voice in the creative music scene. His latest self-released album, VIDESH, has been acclaimed as,"point[ing] toward new possibilities in improvised music." (The Denver Post) This stems from his approach to composition and improvisation, where Mittal is not held back by specific genres but draws inspiration from an eclectic mix of modern jazz, rock, Indian raga music, and field samples of our modern world, to tell a story of the human experience.

I am excited to announce that I have been awarded a senior performing arts fellowship to conduct a music project in Kolkata, India for a year.  My project is to study evening and late night ragas with Prattyush Banergee in Kolkata India.  This will culminate in a new composition for jazz instrumentation called Nocturne.
