The Emergence Band at Kalabhumi

Four groups of musicians from Auroville, different styles from jazz to blues to rock, gathered on the open air stage of Kalabhumi.
Emergence is an Indo-acoustic pop band from started in 2006. Emergence are from Solitude Farm, a community started by Krishna.
Harmonic textures of guitar and powerful lyrics blend with sublime Carnatic melodies played on violin and fused with Tamil. This, backed by the expressive grooves of rock, funk and ethnic rhythms and an explosive style of fretless and six-string bass is the unique fusion that is Emergence.
