Portrait of Mali Sastri

Mali Sastri joined AGNI in 2015 as curator of music for our launch events. She is the singer, songstress, and pianist of the innovative and ethereal Boston band Jaggery. Her multihued voice—trained in the expressive arts discipline Voice Movement Therapy—moves from from “new-age songbird to woman scorned to woodland fairy to blood-thirsty werewolf to sultry lounge singer” (The Boston Herald). Her songs play with the delicate and the fierce: haunting lullabies, furious, mixed-meter rants, tightly-woven compositions in odd time signatures, and catharsis-inducing, barn-burning mini-epics all make appearances (often within the same song).
