Born in the South Indian state of Kerala, Shruti moved with her family to Mumbai, where she was raised. After that, she studied at KM Music Conservatory in Chennai before moving to Canada. In BC, Shruti attended Vancouver Island University for two years before finishing her degree in jazz at Capilano University.

I attended Raagaverse's first gig at the Fox Cabaret in March 2022 and wrote about it:
