The music of these melodies will be composed in the band’s signature style of blending Indian music with different genres of the world.

In the words of Karthick Iyer, their front man “IndoSoul’s aim is to blend Indian classical music with different genres and take it outside of India, bringing people closer together. We believe that through soulful music, we can unify the world.”

This band has Indian Carnatic Music at its core but stands out by integrating unique and diverse elements such as blues, jazz, rock into their work. When it comes to making unique music, they have no limit to their imagination. Their collaboration with the famous pianist DondieuDivin is a testament to this.
