Kavi Pau (b. 1996) is a British Indian music director, composer, singer and keyboardist based in London. His earliest musical experiences were in Indian music, studying the harmonium and Hindustani singing with Pravinaben Patel. Alongside his study of Indian music, Kavi developed an active interest in western classical music from a young age, taking lessons in the piano, clarinet, and voice.

After studying composition and conducting at the Purcell School of Music, Kavi won a choral scholarship to Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where he studied music. While at Cambridge, he worked regularly as a music director and répétiteur with the university’s top vocal and instrumental ensembles and toured internationally with the Choir of Gonville and Caius College.

Since graduating in 2018 with a prize-winning double-first class degree, Kavi has maintained a busy career, involving both the Indian and Western elements of his musical identity. Alongside his work as Director of the Third Culture Collective, he is also Director of Music at St Barnabas Church, Ealing and is the Founder Director of Ensemble 1517, a choir specialising in the music of the Lutheran Reformation. He combines these posts with regular freelance activities and also teaches at the University of Cambridge.
