Having just launched his first music album on June 13th evening at Museum Theatre, Chennai, Karthick Iyer launches his album in Bangalore at The BFlat Bar in Indiranagar, on Saturday, June 20th, 2015.

Bangalore audiences are in for a real treat – What is it about an evening of “good” music that strikes such a deep chord with us – no matter where it comes from? Is it the genre, the beat, the instruments, the notes, the voice or something else? Exploring answers to this question has been a rewarding 20+ year journey for accomplished violinist Karthick Iyer, culminating in his own creation of a unique style of music, called IndoSoul, The music breaks down superficial barriers between genres, instruments, cultures, languages to bring out the deep commonalities that define Indosoul. Karthick Iyer Live seeks to introduce IndoSoul to people around the world, and inspire them to appreciate music that they might not have sought out on their own. An electric violin, a mridangam, an acoustic guitar, bass and drums along with vocals form the core of the band, Karthick Iyer Live.
