1. His Performances Transport You To A Safe Space
There are people from all walks of life at Karsh Kale's performances, which is one of my favorite qualities about his DJ Set. His fan base is so diverse, which I think is awesome. The concerts are there for everyone to freely enjoy, from young to old. Karsh Kale today is known as a pioneer in the world of global fusion. His career has gone through many avatars over the past 15 years as he jumps between the hoops of being a world renowned tabla player, drummer, DJ/ remix artist, vocalist, multi instrumentalist, film composer, as well as a band leader and curator all with equal ease. So come relax & unwind.

2. The Set List Surprises You Every Single Time
Not only the song order but the actual songs played surprise you every single time, meaning that you could see Karsh Kale's performances every day for a week and not see the same show. He has been described by Billboard Magazine as a "visionary composer and producer" and that is evident in the music you hear when he's playing.
3. His Shows Draw An Enormously Large Numbers of Fans
That gives even the casual fan, like myself, a warm toasty feeling because just everyone there is super, super into it, making the experience energetic and full of admiration that bounces back and forth between the performer and audience. He has become a noted composer in the world of film and has also made his forward thinking artistic presence felt on T.V shows like the Cannes Award Winning show like The Dewarists, in which Kale featured in 2 seasons as well as popular shows such as Coke Studio @ MTV Season 2 and MTV Sound Trippin Season 2. He also curated a special set featuring musicians from across the NH7 Weekender Festival to present a finale set that left his audience asking for more.

Ravi Shankar, Herbie Hancock, Sting, Anoushka Shankar, Lenny Kravitz, Bill Laswell, Norah Jones, Alicia Keys and many others.

5. President Barack Obama Loved His Music
In President Barack Obama's words, "Karsh Kale mixes eclectic beats with the sounds of his heritage to make a sound that is distinctly his own.” There's something about his performances that is so simple, yet so fulfilling. I will probably continue seeing Karsh Kale until he stops touring, which I hope is never!
