Swarathma is a Bangalore (India) based contemporary folk fusion band that represents the sound of today’s India: rooted in tradition, yet with sights set firmly on the world. The sound is Indian folk and classical blended with reggae, blues and jazz.
The band is known for a visually electric stage act featuring faux-folk-horses, Bihari accents, and a Nehru Topis at various times. With music that is strong and beautiful, contemporary and relevant, hard-hitting and tongue-in-cheek, they're one of India's most sought after live acts. Indeed, when one attends a Swarathma gig, one could be (at various points of time) dancing, headbanging, laughing, contemplating, or picking jaw off the floor!
With 2 albums on EMI, and international tours of the UK, Hong Kong and Singapore, they have managed to export a brand of contemporary Indian music that is exciting and fresh while being strong and beautiful.
