‘Ladies Compartment’ is a dynamic music project based out of Mumbai – it is a tribute to the daily trials of a working woman in Mumbai city, along with the cinematic romanticism of local trains. The members of the group initially came together to share their interests in American Folk, Jazz, Blues, Indie and Carnatic Indian classical traditions just like the passengers in a ladies’ train compartment, each with their own unique story to tell. What started as a band evolved into a larger project. ‘Ladies Compartment’ currently comprises well-established musicians along with upcoming talented local women artists. Band members include Ramya Pothuri (on acoustic and vocals); Aarifah Rebello (on drums and vocals), Aditi Ramesh (on keys and vocals), and Nandita V (on bass and vocals).
