Indosoul by Karthick Iyer
Karthick Iyer has over 20 years of classical carnatic experience, starting from the age of 8, captivating audiences with his soulful voice and emotion-led violin pieces across ‘sabhas’ and other venues.
Seeking to broaden his horizons, he started playing in the Indian film industry, with AR Rahman, Imman, Devi Sri Prasad and other notable music directors. He composed a song for a Bollywood movie along the way, as well as jingles for multiple TV ads.
Karthick then spent a few years performing across the world, in stages like Glastonbury (UK), Kennedy Centre for Performing Arts (US), WOMAD (Spain), One Movement (Perth), BBC’s ‘Later with Jools Holland’ and MTV Coke Studio – collaborating with internationally renowned artists The Raghu Dixit Project, Susheela Raman and Indo-acoustic band – Emergence
The journey has led him to form his own band, IndoSoul. The band consists of musicians from diverse musical backgrounds – Vikram Vivekanand on the guitar, Reshwin Nishith on bass, Ramkumar Kanakarajan on drums, Sumesh Narayanan on the mridangam and percussion, and Karthick Iyer on violin and vocals.
IndoSoul seeks to introduce Indian Classical music to people around the world, and inspire them to appreciate music that they might not have sought out on their own.
