SUAAB Music & Traditions HOMEFEST Event

Join SUAAB as they host the Homefest virtual concert, featuring Raveena Aurora.

Raveena Aurora, also known mononymously as Raveena, is an American singer and songwriter. Her debut EP, Shanti, was released independently in 2017. Her first album, Lucid, was released independently in 2019.

The soft-spoken 25-year-old creates music that is comforting but nuanced, balancing cultures old and new by mashing up contemporary R&B with traditions from the South Asian diaspora. Since making her introduction with the 2017 EP Shanti, Raveena has quickly gained a following of fellow millennial South Asian Americans who, like her, feel themselves at a crossroads of identity, culture and time.
