Started from the Bottom

Our Origins

Thirteen years ago at the University of Illinois, a group of friends with a unique taste in music came together to fuse their passion of Hindi and western music. The result was an exciting new flavor of music that caught the attention of all ears that gave it a listen. From coffee shops, to dining halls, to unforeseen street performances, the young men always brought an eccentric flair and captivating sense of style to their performances which left the audience smiling and begging for more. Before they knew it, the group of brothers who just recently began singing together in classrooms and basements of university housing, were gaining more and more recognition from all over. And thus, Chai-Town a Cappella was born.
