“Astha” means faith in Hindi. Astha A Cappella is Saint Louis University’s premier co-ed, fusion a cappella group. Established in 2006, the group was started by six students who came together to sing Indian fusion music, hang out, and jam. They had faith (astha) in music and Astha A Cappella was born. In three short years, Astha has grown from jam-sessions to complex compositions, from six music-lovers to fourteen talented singers from a variety of backgrounds, all with an interest in singing a diverse mixture of melodies that combines Western and Eastern musical influences.
