About Me

Maize Mirchi is the University of Michigan's premier (and only, but mostly premier) South Asian A Cappella group! We sing a blend of Indian, Western and fusion music. In the a cappella tradition, all of our music is made without instruments, and all of our arrangements are unique and student-written. Our membership consists of undergraduate and graduate students with a variety of musical experience ranging from classical Indian and Western choral training to "Hey, I sound pretty good in the shower."

Founded in 2007 by Suresh Mohan and Arvind Narayanan, Mirchi has since performed at such events as the University of Michigan IASA Show (the largest student-run production in the nation), Dandia Dhamaka (an intercollegiate Raas-Garba competition) and more. We are also active in the UM a cappella community and enjoy performing at yearly events.

Auditions

We hold auditions every fall term. Stay posted for details!
