Lagori makes music that reflects the face of the modern Indian youth. This Bangalore-based band combines Indian classical melodies and inflections with Rock music, resulting in an interesting mix that is high on energy, while also being catchy and soulful.

Pronounced `La-go-ree`, the band gets its name from the popular street game played in south India. They are fascinated by the rich diversity of culture that exists in the country, especially the evolving definition of what it means to be an Indian. Having grown up in the cosmopolitan city of Bangalore — a melting pot of cultures, ideas, languages and beliefs — Lagori`s music reflects the varied influences of each band member that form a unique, fresh and honest sound. In a short time, their music has won them a growing and passionate fan base, both online and offline.

The band`s live act is an energetic 90-minute performance that includes material from their first album, sung in Hindi and Kannada, and interesting covers that have influenced them.

Agam is a multiple award-winning contemporary Carnatic rock act from Bangalore, India. Agam derives its name from the ancient Tamil word, which translates to `the inner self`. Agam`s music encapsulates the boundless, vibrant emotions of the human psyche. It explores, depicts and contemplates the inner self`s countless aspirations and sentiments. Their music combines the myriad hues of melodic scales and intricate rhythm structures offered by Carnatic music with the aesthetic principles and tonal elegance from western world.

True to their name, Avial (a mixed-vegetable delicacy) blends Malayalam poetry with contemporary Alternative Rock. With elements of Indie Rock and Folk underlying an Electronic feel, Avial`s music has overcome language barriers in India and across the globe. Their revolutionary approach in today`s contemporary music scene in India has earned them an ever-growing fan base.

The band members come from an in-depth musical background, with a lot of experience working with different bands before they could come together. In search of something more intrinsic, with a sense of belonging, Avial discovered and articulated the expression in their own mother tongue, and dared to express themselves with their self-titled debut album.

Fetching a great name for themselves, Avial is one of the most sought-after Indian bands today, transcending genres and justifying the term `Alternative Malayalam Rock`.
