Ladies Compartment is a dynamic female music project based out of Mumbai. The name ‘Ladies Compartment’ is a tribute to the daily trials of a working woman in the city of Mumbai, along with the almost cinematic romanticism of local trains. The members of the group initially came together to share their interests in jazz, blues, American folk, 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 has now evolved into a larger project. Ladies Compartment being an all female ensemble currently comprises of established musicians along with upcoming talented local female artists.

Nush is a versatile multi-instrumentalist, composer and singer-songwriter based in Mumbai, India. Having trained in the piano in her childhood and since then extensively in the harp, she has completed her performance course in the harp from one the finest institutes in the country, the KM Conservatory, Chennai.
Donning multiple hats, as a composer, she’s collaborated with producer Ayan De in 2014 and released her debut EP “Fused”, which was critically acclaimed. With moody, pensive compositions, combined with a unique production ethos, her musicality can best be described as minimal acoustic, with intricate melodic lines set upon ephemeral soundscapes. Having multiple performance modules, as a solo act, band, and as part of multiple collaborative efforts, her performances showcase these encapsulating creations.
