Unnati literally means “progress” in Hindi. Unnati was blessed to be surrounded by the gift of music from a young age. Her father was the late Nitai Dasgupta, a versatile Indian Classical vocalist & teacher of Indian Music. Unnati’s first public performance was at the tender age of 4 years old in front of an audience of 3,000 people singing for Janmashtami (Krishna’s Birthday). Unnati released her debut album “Vishwa – The Universe of Music” in India with a 6 City tour of Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore & Coorg in 2002. In 2005, Unnati was one of six semi finalists of the Glastonbury Unsigned Artistes Jazz World heat and her track “Baarish Mein – In the Rain” released on "The Glastonbury Unsigned Artistes of 2005" compilation album.

Unnati has performed extensively at prestigious venues and festivals around the world including Kala Ghoda Arts Festival in India, Mexico’s Cervantino Festival & Boubou’s Music Festival in the Caribbean. More recently, Unnati has been involved in a music, dance & audio-visual production of Tagore’s Gitanjali directed by Sangeeta Datta (Life Goes On, Raincoat, Brick Lane) which has been touring UK at Alchemy Festival, Southbank Centre, London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall as support act to Bollywood Music Trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Tagore’s Festival in Dartington. Unnati has also collaborated and co-written tracks for producer Shammi Pithia and has performed as guest vocalist at Indigo O2 Centre, Purcell Room, Southbank Centre and London Mela as part of this project.

Unnati is currently performing with her band songs from forthcoming solo album “Indigo Soul”. Unnati's music combines a unique blend of global music encompassing Jazz, Hindi contemporary, Indian Classical, Folk & Spiritual influences, which reflect Unnati’s international background.
