About Swarathma -
Swarathma is one of India’s top folk bands, based in Bangalore. Their sound is rooted in Indian folk traditions while leaning on rock, blues & reggae motifs. The visually electric and high-energy live act is among India’s busiest bands, having played hundreds of shows across the country since 2002.
Swarathma is all about infectious on-stage energy. Their act is high on interactivity with sing-along sections, ad-libbed, repartee and the occasional couplet. It also features faux folk-horses and band members sporting Nehru Topis. One of India’s favorite festival bands, they have performed at multiple NH7 Weekender, The Storm Festival in Coorg, SulaFest in Nasik, FiresFlies Festival in Bangalore and many more.
Swarathma’s appeal comes from sensitive songwriting and socially relevant lyrics. After their powerful second album Topiwalleh (2012) produced by Loy Mendonsa of the composer trio Shankar-Ehsan-Loy, they released a slew of singles and music videos that have gone to win critical & popular acclaim. Their outspoken music features collaborations with music’s biggest names such as Bassement Jaxx, Salim-Sulaiman, Shubha Mugdal & Clinton Cerejo.
About Shadow and Light-
Words suspended in melody. That's how it started”…
Shadow and Light was born on a cold November afternoon in New Delhi, from the efforts of two people - Pavithra Chari and Anindo Bose; to unlock the potential within a few notes of music. Anindo Bose has been a member of the band Advaita since it's inception. He has been featured on Coke studio and MTV unplugged as well as toured internationally to countries like England, Africa, Singapore and Maldives. Together the duo's style of music in the compositions are Hindustani classical, pop, jazz, and electronic. Shadow and Light released their debut self-titled album on June 2014. The songs on the album are written about personal milestones and obstacles, about the eternal mystery that we call life and the little everyday things that matter to us most. They were chosen as the 1st runner up of the ‘Sennheiser top 50’ competition in 2015 and won the opportunity to record with one of Bollywood’s top production studios - ‘Flying Carpet Productions’.
