After numerous successful sessions at Goethe Institut, Colombo, the Indian leg of Border Movement Lounge is set to launch in New Delhi on 17 September 2014.

Line Up: Sunara (Colombo/ Sri Lanka), Lifafa (New Delhi India) & Moniker (New Delhi/ India)

The lounge is a concept event created by Goethe Institut and Border Movement that supports underground electronic music by enabling cross cultural collaborations among artists in the subcontinent. Previous editions of the informal events at Colombo have seen some excellent performances in the realm of electronic music, allowing young producers from South Asia to connect with their contemporaries in the region. This edition will be organised along with regional partner Wild City.

The interactive event format lays focus on a different region in South Asia each time, with the focus for the first run on Sri Lanka. Colombo based artist and alternative electronic colossus, Sunara, will be visiting the subcontinent and performing at both venues for the very first time.

The Delhi chapter of Border Movement Lounge will take place at the city’s newest cultural hub – Hauz Khas Social and will feature sets by Delhi based Moniker, Lifafa and of course, Sunara:-). The talented artist brings her inimitable style to the dance floor by straddling a number of genres such as glitch hop, nu jazz, hip-hop and funk. Sunara will also go on to perform at the Border Movement Lounge in Kolkata set to take place at Burdwan Palace. She will be joined by electronic/ambient and chill out musician, Yidam and break beat electronic duo Soumajit Ghosh & Aneesh Basu, a.k.a Hybrid Protocol.

The Goethe Institut has always been a strong supporter of alternative electronic music, organising events such as SoundCamp South Asia and the impressive Pettah Interchange in Sri Lanka. It’s an event worth attending for anyone even remotely interested in the current underground cultural and sub-cultural space in South Asia. Not only will it feature some great music, it also provides a space for young, likeminded people in the industry to meet, collaborate and exchange creative notes.
