1. Nieuwe Kerk, The Hague
MaatiBaani collaborated with the two amazing Dutch musicians Jesse and Bart, for their song Jao Piya. A year later after this collaboration, Maatibaani was invited by a Holland based cultural organization, DesiYUP to perform at Holland and they got to perform with the incredible Dutch Musicians LIVE!
In the breathtakingly beautiful church, Jesse and Bart walked around the church playing Raga Sarang and the audience received the best of both the worlds!
Dreams do come true!
2. NH7 Weekender, Bangalore
For musicians the best parties happen on stage! 5th December happens to be the singer of MaatiBaani, Nirali's bday and on the same date, MaatiBaani was performing at NH7!
The audience was singing Happy Bday to the bands music! And we are yet to come across a music festival happier than the Nh7
3. World Sufi Spirit Festival, Jodhpur
Maatibaani had the honor of performing on the same stage as Ustad Amjad Ali Khan at this festival. Maati Baani collaborated with Iraqi musician Mohammad Alnuma on Oud and Vocals and performed Persian compositions "Dazani" and "Mehboobi"
blended with the sounds of Ney and Gujarati poetry.
The walls of Mehrangarh seem to have stored many stories and it felt the band was doing a Jugalbandi with this gorgeous fort!
A must visit festival for every sufi music lover !
4. Esplanade, Singapore
With one of the most scenic backdrops in Singapore, Maati Baani had the privilege to perform for 3 consecutive days with totally different setups at Esplanade for
the festival of Arts, Kala Utsavam. The rare moment where Maati Baani performed their song 'Ja Ja Re' introducing 3 diffferent cultures of woodwinds - Shankar Tucker on Clarinet, Quing Lun on Hulusi and Noor Mohammad on Jodiya Pawa is the reason why they are considered to be the pioneers of collaboration.
5. Blue Frog, Mumbai
On the accasion of World Music Day, Maati Baani got to perform with one of the most beloved collaborators from their song "Tore Matware Naina" - Joyshanti -- the Rnb and Soul singer who was flown in specially for this concert from Paris by Alliance Francaise. Such was the bands energy that night, that the people couldnt stop dancing to their songs.
