Growing a reputation for making music that is intricate, energising and beautiful, flux are a band made up of six incredibly versatile musicians playing instruments ranging from Piano to Bansuri, Double Bass to Cajon, and Violin to Synths
Formed two years ago, flux have made an impressive start to their career with performances at Glastonbury Festival, London Southbank Centre, Kings Place, The National Portrait Gallery, The Great Escape and the Indig02.
With roots in London, India and the United States, flux produce music that embodies their individual influences and shared journey, summed in their debut release Mirror (2012). The seven-track record full of beauty, force, and spirit, has received great praise from the industry and their growing fan-base. Mostly instrumental with the guest vocalists, Mirror serves as an introduction to the band sound and vision and gives listeners a taste of the magic they can expect from the album, which they are currently recording.
flux can be electrifying when playing their full-on heavy show but can go gentle and delicate when playing their rearranged acoustic, almost classical set. The versatility and multi-instrumental talents of flux leave audiences in awe and are creating a big buzz around their name.
As well as recording their album this year, flux also have a string of exciting gigs lined up, including Alchemy at the Southbank Centre, a residency and performance at Dartington Inspired By Tagore Festival, and commissions to compose for theater and ballet premieres.
Members: Shammi PIthia, Preetha Narayanan, Michael Goodey, Salima Barday, Suroj Sureshbabu, Ian Newton-Grant.
