What is it about “good” music that strikes such a deep chord with us - no matter where it comes from? Is it the genre, the beat, the instruments, the notes, the voice or something else? Exploring answers to this question has been a rewarding 20+year journey for Karthick Iyer, culminating in the creation of his own unique style of music called IndoSoul.
An electric violin, a mridangam, an acoustic guitar, bass and drums along with vocals form the core of the band, Karthick Iyer Live. Often seen collaborating with diverse musicians, the band breaks down superficial barriers between genres, instruments, cultures, languages to bring out the deep commonalities that define Indosoul.
The band consists of musicians from diverse musical backgrounds - Vikram Vivekanand on the guitar, Naveen Napier on the bass, Ramkumar Kanakarajan on drums, Sumesh Narayanan on the mridangam and percussion, and Karthick Iyer on violin and vocals. Karthick Iyer Live seeks to introduce IndoSoul to people around the world, and inspire them to appreciate music that they might not have sought out on their own.
