Dhamakapella is Case Western Reserve University’s competitive South Asian fusion a cappella group. We perform original arrangements that fuse Western artists such as Ariana Grande, Sia, Maroon 5, and Kanye West, Bollywood film and Indian classical music, and genres such as pop, R&B, trap, and dubstep. Since our inception in 2005, we have recorded and produced two studio albums composed entirely of original arrangements written by current members of the group or alumni. Not only does Dhamaka perform at various on and off campus events, we compete against other fusion a cappella teams nationally. Dhamaka has competed at numerous competitions and festivals throughout the country, and has won nine national titles. In 2017, Dhamakapella was one of seven teams to qualify for the first-ever South Asian fusion a cappella bid-style championship, All-American Awaaz. Our group is composed of students from a wide spread of musical backgrounds, ranging from shower singers to those with classical Indian and Western vocal training. We are united by our love for music and are always excited to recruit new talent, perfect our sound, and share our passion with our listeners.
