PINKNOISE Release The Dance Of The Diaspora, LP

Regarded as perhaps the most intriguing, and experimentally cutting edge musical act, Kolkata-based experimental electronic fusion band PINKNOISE, have recently released their much awaited debut LP, The Dance Of The Diaspora. With guitar god Amyt Datta, drummer Jivraj 'Jiver' Singh, vocalist Jayashree Singh, and bassist Gyan Singh; PINKNOISE's music is fervently defiant of any genre, pattern, or form, and has redefined the very persona of a musician in the Indian independent music scene. We spoke to Jayashree about her experience working on the album, and all the ups and downs the band has faced, since the tragic demise of bassist Gyan Singh [RIP].
