Antoine Redon
Living in India since 10 years, Antoine is a French singer who started learning the violin at the age of 6 and soon took the guitar to accompany his voice, also taking on Reggae music as a bit of an obsession. He sang the main roles in the musicals ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ in Paris (2004) and ‘Hair’ in Paris (2002) and in Delhi (2008 & 2010).

He gathered musical influences from the African tradition, Reggae, Rock Opera, Spanish gypsy and French songs and his own compositions. You can see him appearing in “Delhi Roots”, “Serge Gainsbourg night”, “A Capella”, “The French troubadours – Antoine and Romain” “The Shouts – Antoine & Aditi” and more recently in “Vocal Rasta,” an A Capella ensemble produced by Teamwork Arts for Freedom of Expression that he conducts in various concerts and festivals.

Ditty is the moonlighting artistic alter ego of architect Aditi Veena. Her performances combine music with experimental spatial experiences and have ranged from performing in small tight basements with visual projections to spatial experiences to a walking garden concert through the beautiful Village of Zorba the Buddha where the audience moved through the gardens with the artists to listen to music in various different spaces.

Her first EP is called Mumblings (on the impressioned interactions with four charming monsieurs in the life of Ditty). It is a concept EP linking four stories about four special men in Ditty’s life. And since Ditty wanted it to be more than just music, She ended up doing a small storybook which unfolded and illustrated all four stories.
