Ami Saraiya: An Enchantress

Ami Saraiya - photo 3

It’s easy to picture Ami Saraiya’s croon wafting through the dark over a raucous bar crowd like clouds of wispy cigarette smoke. In much the same way those fumes sting your nose hairs and make your eyes water, Saraiya’s simultaneously smooth and sultry singing voice will tickle your ears and make you giggle just a bit while it tugs at your heartstrings.

Make no mistake, Saraiya is an aural temptress, a siren with a jazz lounge-worthy voice accompanied by piano, guitar, upright bass and plenty more. The lovely sounds that emerge from Saraiya herself that grab the listener’s attention first, and then you’re hooked.

Saraiya has been playing piano since the age of 6. A native of Chicago with Indian roots, she was once in a band called Radiant Darling. She went solo in 2006, and plays the accordion as well.

Give in to Ami. You’ll be happier.
