Our Story

In Singapore, a city at its mark of multi-cultural renaissance; secretly witnessed the birth of this aced quintet. Featuring Southeast Asia’s finest self-expanding musical cats, Ragha (Bansuri), Rachma (Piano), Jase (Bass), Jit (DrumKit), Kumaran (Tabla), in one complete harmony.

Their dynamic yet humble relationship began during undergraduate jazz music studies at LaSalle College of the Arts, a prestigious arts college of Singapore, with some previously long termed music friends.

At the request of an invite, Ragha, the lead artist, instinctively called upon his “A-Team” to fire up a Jazz Fusion Band.

RaghaJazz made their debut in the year 2009, for the Asian Vibes Festival, held at Esplanade, Singapore.
