Indian-American composer Reena Esmail "creates richly melodic lines that imbue her music with the heights of lyricism, balanced by winning textural clarity." (AAAL) A graduate of Julliard and Yale School of Music, and a 2011-12 Fulbright grantee to India, Esmail's work draws elements from both Western and Hindustani (North Indian) classical music. Esmail's works have received honors from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and ASCAP, and have been performed throughout the United States, in India and abroad. Esmail currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
