Technology meets tradition as cutting edge live electronica and digital technologies combine with the traditional sounds of Punjab.
PunjabTronix is an exciting and new international commission by Asian Arts Agency.
We produced and managed a UK Tour in July 2017. PunjabTronix performed at venues including Rich Mix London, MAC Birmingham and Arnolfini in Bristol.
THE AUDIENCE REACTION HAS BEEN OVERWHELMING.
“One of the best gigs I’ve ever been to! Thank you guys so much!”
“I honestly believe this is going to be the next big thing! Electronica and folk…taste makers!”
“Mind blowing gig at the Arnolfini Bristol. Wow Wow and super WOW.”
WHO ARE PUNJABTRONIX?
Mercury nominated electronic music producer DJ Swami joins forces with Punjabi folk musicians to create an innovative musical and visual experience, combining cutting edge electronic beats with the raw energetic DNA of Punjab.
WHAT IS PUNJABTRONIX?
Combining live electronic dance music with Punjabi dhol drums, vocals, stringed instruments and the hypnotic sounding double flute algoza, the powerful distinct rhythms and traditional melodies of the Punjab interact creatively with live electronic drum machines, synthesiser arpeggios and basslines.
