Hot New Local Singles: Kavyesh Kaviraj

Kavyesh Kaviraj, a local composer/pianist/arranger, has managed to give new life to a sound that we are all familiar with. His debut album, Fables, features a unique, nature-inspired piece, “Rain.” It starts soft, but quickly becomes cacophonous, jumping back and forth between the two. I’ve listened to “Rain” all the way through three times so I could fully grasp what it’s giving me. I may still have to give it another listen or two because it is so dense. Kaviraj creates personal pieces connecting his music to his rich cultural background and his soul. I personally hadn’t heard of him before, but to know that such an admirable musician walks among us is truly eye opening for what our Twin Cities can offer! Fables is definitely worth exploring if you enjoy listening to stories and personalized sounds, accompanied by sultry and multifarious layers of harmony.
