Local Indo-Jazz Fusion

Do you like music that defies genre and blurs boundaries? Local musician Aakash Mittal blends the sounds of India with classic instrumental jazz. That might seem unlikely, but he pulls it off with ease to create a rich and piquant experience for your ears.

Mittal's songs range from shamanic and meditative to bustling and chaotic, combining the undulating melodies of traditional Indian music with your classic groovy coffee shop and lounge jazz.
Based in Colorado but influenced through both heritage and study by India, Mittal has collaborated with numerous musicians over the years, including bassist extraordinaire Kai Eckardt. He has taught music at more than 11 local schools, as well as participating in and orchestrating many other educational projects in Colorado. He even actively teaches music lessons in Loveland and Boulder.
You can see him live in concert on March 4th and March 25th at Vita Restaurant  in Denver, or on March 7th at the Blue River Bistro in Breckenridge (these are only the nearest dates - if you can't make these, there are plenty more!). Take a listen to his tunes and see the full list of his many upcoming shows on his website.
