Arzutra Garielle grew up in Westminster, a suburb of London in the U.K. Her parents are from Africa and grandparents from India who left India upon the partition of India in 1947. From an early age, she studied instruments, dancing, poetry-writing and singing. In an interview, Garielle said that she was discouraged from pursuing music by her parents, who preferred her to concentrate on academics. Her poetry-writing turned into song-writing, and though she claimed never to have set out to be a singer that music had always been important to her. After being praised for her voice, she decided to pursue a music career.
In 2019 she decided to change her name. She changed her name from Tripet Garielle to Arzutra Garielle after years of deliberating on her name. She wanted a positive meaning and chose the word Arzu which means dream, desire, wish. The origin of this word is Persia and has Middle Eastern influences together with connection with Urdu and Sub-Continental languages. She chose the 'tra' to be added from her idol Cleopatra.
Arzutra Garielle didn’t know any Indian languages and was advised that she could never sing in dialect. She spent years studying Indian language and literature, and worked with vocal coaches Chiranjib Chakraborty of India and Nisar Daniel of Pakistan.
Her first single came from music producer Jawad Hyder (a.k.a. JKD), who composed and produced her debut single "Palkaan" in 2014. The song has South American jazz acoustics infused with a Bollywood vibe, hitting all major Bollywood music channels. She released her second song with JKD, "Aaz Ma Le", an edgy rock funk with Bollywood inspired sound.
However her real break came from working with Bollywood Producer Atif Ali who she worked with for 5 year on finding her signature style and working with him she launched her debut solo album 'Love was my Idea'. For her debut solo album, Woh Pal, she worked with producer Atif Ali, who had worked with mainstream Indian artists Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Atif Aslam, Sajid-Wajid, Salim-Sulaiman, Pritam, Sajjad Ali, and Bappi Lahiri.[relevant? ]
In 2015, Garielle released "Woh Pal" as the lead single for the album. This romantic-acoustic Bollywood-style love song garnered her great praise and interest.[according to whom?] It was in the Top 40. Most recently, Garielle released her second single called "Aa Vee Jaa", with an urban Bollywood-style sound. It was blogged about and picked up by Bhangra sites online, and described by Hungama[who?] as a "Beat with attitude",[This quote needs a citation] and by music critic Parag Kamani as "Reminiscent of the '80s Indi-pop sounds [as against the '10s indie-pop sounds]".[This quote needs a citation]
Garielle says that her greatest musical influences have been Lata Mangeshkar, Shreya Ghoshal, Arabic singer Amr Diab and her producer Atif Ali. Her western influences are Alicia Keys and Mariah Carey.[relevant? ]
Her music is universal[according to whom?] although Bollywood-inspired and dominated. Her debut album Woh Pal has various genres: dance, acoustic, ambient lounge, romantic and sufi rock. She can sing in different genres at any tempo. Every track on Woh Pal is totally different.[according to whom?]
