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 with Reggae, Blues and Jazz in a blend that is one-of-a-kind.
The band is known for a visually electric interactive stage act featuring folk-horses and Nehru Topis. This act won over audiences at top festivals such as Lovebox and Larmer Tree Festivals in London and Awtar Festival in Morocco. They have traveled to Hong Kong, Australia and Singapore as well.
The band wears their social conscience on their sleeve. They play one free show for every paid show, giving back their music to those who may not be able to watch them easily. They've played for leprosy centres, villages, orphanages and street kids at various times. With music that is strong and beautiful, contemporary and relevant, hard-hitting and tongue-in-cheek, they are one of India’s busiest bands.
