INDO – WESTERN GENRE-TRIPPING WORLD-INSPIRED MASALA

LEHERA brings yet another angle to the exciting cross-pollinated musical landscape. From Indian Music to Blues, Jazz, Funk, and Worldmusic, they cook up a banquet of rhythm and melody that transports; from evocative ostinatos to haunting layered vocal and instrumental soundscapes. With their joyful blend of  technique, thought-provoking lyrics, and potent emotional performances, Lehera is a spicy offering of song.

Serving up their genre-tripping vibe both energetic and contemplative, lehera dazzles with understated virtuosity and musically dense grooves. Vocals in English and Indian styles weave with Indian slide guitar, violin, and bamboo flutes driven by Ghatam (Clay pot drum), Konnakol (Carnatic drum language), and world percussion instruments underpinned with funky and bluesy guitar. A feast for the senses!
