Charu Suri is a multi award-winning pianist and composer who became the first Indian American jazz composer at Carnegie Hall. She has been playing the piano since the age of five, and performing since the age of nine. She won an international piano competition at the age of 15.

She has a Piano Performance certificate from Princeton University, where she received her undergraduate degree, and a Master’s in Music from the Manhattan School of Music.

She has released three albums, including "The Book of Ragas" which blends Sufi music, a jazz trio and Indian ragas, which six time GRAMMY winning artist Arturo O'Farrill has described as "singular." Her work has been performed by Yo-Yo Ma and double bass player Edgar Meyer.

The trio consists of Charu Suri on the piano, J. Brunka on the double bass, and Jay O’Brien on the drums. Formed in the spring of 2018, the ensemble has received praise for its renditions of standards and original music. Its debut album, “Lollipops for Breakfast,” debuted in November, to much acclaim.

She is a voting member of the GRAMMYs.
