if u abandon friday, their next stop is Glastonbury :)

Emergence - The face of Acoustic Indo-Pop. Born in Pondicherry, Emergence represents a true melting of cultures, backgrounds and musical expressions. Singing in English and Tamil, Emergence pushes the boundaries of their own cultural identities. The multi-layered harmonic textures of guitar and poetical lyricism played by Krishna blend with the sublime melodies of the carnatic idiom, played on the violin and sung in Tamil by Kirupa. This, backed by the expressive exploration of tallams, funk, and jazz rhythmical grooves of Lowell Harrison, and the exquisite bass playing of the renowned Mishko M'Ba, is the unique fusion of Emergence.

Krishna, lead singer and guitarist of Emergence, hails from the UK and has been living in South India for the last fifteen years. His highly harmonic style is inspired by jazz, funk, Dylan, and classical Hindustani themes.

Kirupa Paranan is a reputed Carnatic violinist and vocalist from Sri Lanka. He infuses the music with intricate melodies on violin as well as singing in his native Tamil.
Mishko M'Ba is among the cream of France's bass players, having worked with with such top musicians as Ray Charles, Barbara Hendrix and Didier Lockwood. Mishko is an active musician on the indian circuit.
Lowell Harrison, a funk and jazz drummer from Boston,

, has performed extensively through the
US from Florida to Alaska. He draws inspiration equally from funk percussion and Carnatic tallams.

now featuring Matt Littlewood: a classically trained jazz saxaphonist originally from the UK, has lived around Pondicherry for the last thirteen years and is highly sought-after as a jazz-man on the Indian music scene.
