Curated by vocalist and composer Arooj AftabSAUVE (South Asian Union Voltage Experiment) is an annual new music festival, a platform for collaborative and experimental new works in the electronic, modular, synthwave, and dream-scape genres. 

Meandering through musicians of South Asian heritage and non, SAUVE creates a night of music that emits a subtle, graceful nod at the ancestral musical qualities of South Asia, while completely submerged in the elusive sounds of modern day modular synthesis. Set to a backdrop of what can just simply be known as the new-music, neo-classical New York music scene, SAUVE nights are celebrations of all our music journeys, past and here to come.
