A face of new India sound, Ashram is one of the first bands from east of India to fuse electronica with Indian traditional root-tribal-ethnic tunes/songs. A blend giving birth to a soundscape that best defines contemporary India where tradition and "the modern" walks hand in hand. Ashram songs will take you into a travel through Indian subcontinent, bringing tunes from boatmen, nomadic tribes, Sufi saints, struggling farmers to celebration of common people's lives.
Formed in '14 Kolkata/India, Ashram played in quite some major Indian venues. Among them, Green Peace India concert-Kolkata and a Hard Rock Cafe tour are notable. Kanishka, the founder, is one of the key persons to start vernacular pop-rock music in India/Kolkata, with nearly 20yrs of experience in music production. Having played more than 2000 live gigs, he plays the Ashram host where musicians from different styles, genres and ethnic groups come, collaborate and share their music. Kanishka is now based in Berlin and began Ashram's European life, the band has already toured in UK, France, Cz Republic and Germany for a number of concerts.
