Ashram

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.   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.
