One of the first bands from the Eastern shores of India to merge Electronica with Indian traditional, root-tribal-ethnic melodies. It’s an eclectic blend that artistically combines contemporary and traditional aesthetics of rhythm. Experience a journey through the Indian subcontinent, the music produced by Ashram transcends tunes of nomadic tribes and Sufi saints, and intonates folk tunes of boatmen, farmers and festive revelry of the common people.
Formed in 2010 in Kolkata, Ashram’s music has traveled through major venues and concerts in India and overseas, the main highlights include the Green Peace India concert, Kolkata, Hard Rock Cafe India tour, Cabaret Sauvage (Paris/Fr), George Tavern(London/UK), United Island Festival of Prague(Cz Republic).
Ashram is the brainchild of a berlin based electronic producer called Kanishka Sarkar. Kanishka and Arko collaborated together to bring together the electronic and ethno - spiritual folk soundscape. Ashram is the only live electronic collaboration based project for Arko.
