A year old, don’t judge Komorebi by its age. It is an independent project by Taran Marwah, who has made circles in the Delhi music scene, with her electronica and experimental genres. Although its usually a combination of synthesiser beats and harmonic melodies, she usually performs with a drummer, Suyash Gabriel.

P.S. If you’re wondering, Komorebi is the Japanese word for the sunlight that filters through the leaves.

A duo that does make the room dance to the beat, that is Paraphonix. Hailing from Mumbai, this is the work of Rai Dewan and Sid Shirodkar, who create electro-pop, synth heavy music. The performance, live, is fun to watch how they work together with their electronic instruments.
