Indian Electronica is a Toronto, Canadian based Arts organization focused on promoting modern aesthetics in music paired with South Asian tradition. Since its early roots as a simple online magazine chronicling developments in the music they showcased, they have grown into a large online community with an international and multi-cultural network of friends.
Initially popularized in the mid 1990s with the UK’s Asian Underground movement, the music of Indian Electronica is expressive of an increasingly complex global identity. Indian Electronica music fuses ‘East’ and ‘West’ using technology and tradition to produce some of the World’s most innovatively emotive and exciting sounds.
Indian Electronica is not a genre; instead, it is a loose term referring to electronic music which exhibits an influence/characteristics of South Asian musical tradition – be it percussion, vocal styling, harmonic elements and so on.
