Raavi Sita, lead vocalist and guitarist of the indie rock band Raavi & the Houseplants, performs live at Mass Audubon's Drumlin Farm in Lincoln, MA.
Sita delivers a uniquely inviting and intimate performance amid the quiet and sprawling farmland where a worker shepherded a herd of sheep in the background just moments before we hit record. It all fit in so many ways, but especially with the themes of the music. In their original forms, Sita's songs address melancholy and fundamental change among energetic guitars and pop hooks, and it's a duality that works. But when you strip them down to just vocals and guitar—as Sita does in this Front Row Boston socially distant field recording—their atmospheres expand, and a moment of clarity is created to confront emotional vulnerability.
