Vasu Dixit is a bold free spirit and front man of the immensely popular local Indie Folk-Rock band, Swarathma . His lyrics speak of his sensitive engagement with life, while his flamboyant stage act speaks of the natural showman he is. Trained in Carnatic Classical music, Vasu was moulded into the soulful singer he is by his mother and older brother, Raghu Dixit.
Vasu’s unique way of experimenting with tunes in Hindi, Kannada, English and Punjabi has steered his band toward great success and he is seen throughout the music world as a highly talented singer and songwriter. Vasu will perform a solo set at BFlat of his own compositions and he will also collaborate on a few songs with some of Aghor’s musicians.
Aghor, a much sought after world fusion music band today, incorporates a vast spectrum of musical colours. They come with a blend of Jazz, Blues,Rock, Hindustani classical, Carnatic classical, Flamenco, Gypsy Jazz and more; yet skillfully holding on to each genre’s individual characteristics. The band believes that their personal involvement and passion for the music helps them grow together to be better musicians. And this process started many years ago, when they came in contact with each other. The band switches between various styles and influences, but at the same time pays a great deal of respect to the diverse cultures from which their music evolves.
