Peepal Tree : Four of Bangalore’s most seasoned and talented musicians ( from Raghu Dixit Project, Sandeep Chowta productions, Bhoomi and more), come together with their brand new project Peepal Tree. Their music can be described as Indian melodies sitting on funk grooves with subtle overtones of electronica, and sung in English & Kannada. This combination of elements makes for a very interesting new sound. Each musician in the band brings a wealth of experience to this new project, having been part of some of the most successful bands from India. Peepal Tree has collectively played more than 1500 concerts globally, in their other projects, and has been a part of the Hindi and Kannada movie industries. (Attached is a detailed profile of the musicians of the Peepal Tree)

OPENING SET – KAYA – urban Indian poetry/song + live electronics + improvisation

KAYA presents a new sound with Arati Rao’s original lyrics and tunes + Aman Mahajan’s live electronics and production – poetry and song embedded in the infinite sonic palette of live electronic instruments and textures. The duo is known to collaborate with guest musicians or soloists. From saxophone strains and guitar riffs, or scratching turntables and haunting flutes, these musicians weave their magic into the electronically produced poetry. The audience can expect special guests to be invited on stage. KAYA performances are always live and animate – reflections from an intrinsically Indian urban existence. Words & music by Arati Rao | arranged & produced by Aman Mahajan.
