My Indie Playlist With Sri: Vol. 01
My Indie Playlist With Sri (Vol.01), is the first edition of an indie music gig series put together by Sri (aka Srijit Bhowmick) and it's the first of its kind in Powai, Mumbai.
An exclusively all-original gig series starting on March 5th at Of10, 'My Indie Playlist' is open to every child in us that enjoys and celebrates creativity and uniqueness.
The lack of space and following amongst its community for creative arts, sports and other such activities bothered local musician Sri for a long time. With massive urbanized changes over the years, the time is ripe for Powai to add another artistic endevour to its list of new initiatives.
With Of10 (a co-working space) welcoming such efforts, therein lies the opportunity for the residents of Powai and beyond to come witness the magic of live music.
Born in Biswa's office loft at the HIVE, Raia and a buffalo began jamming and didn't stop until "Chai" dropped in May 2016. What began as an acoustic jam developed into an adventure in songwriting and Raspberry pi-based production. At their shows, you can expect mad secular shit with a side of feminism.
Ramya Pothuri is a 20 year old singer-songwriter. Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, she first hit the stage at the age of 5. After living and performing in St. Louis, MO for 10 years, she moved to Hyderabad, India, where she became an avid performer in the city's hotel and restaurant circuit, including a 6 month stint at the Trident Hotel. A seasoned singer and finger-style guitarist, with an expansive repertoire, she is currently based in Mumbai. Since moving, she began writing and performing her own material and has since performed at venues and festivals such as the NCPA, Blue Frog, Cafe Zoe, Todi Mill Social, New Wave Asia, Control Alt Delete 10, as well as The Lil Flea and the Little Gig Escape in Murud. She released her first independent EP of original music, titled "We Never Left" on August 24th 2016 and promoted it through her venture "The Living Room Tour", a series of house gigs around Mumbai organised by herself and Ronit Sarkar.
Sri is an indie singer-songwriter (aka Srijit Bhowmick) from Bombay. He writes songs about heartbreaks, poetic misadventures of the downtrodden, or the ordinary boorishness and humdrum existence of everyday life, and yet, not just. As such, his songs are carefully crafted intertwining of expressions and melodies into nothing but stories of our lives - some that could be, some that are and some that may never be.
