For this edition of the Southbank Centre's Purcell Sessions Bishi performs the new album live.

Partly inspired by the essay collection The Good Immigrant and Rabindranath Tagore’s Nobel-winning poem exploring borderless identity, the album features revolutionary use of her trademark electric sitar and four-octave vocal range.

The album, released on her own label Gryphon, also features sampled interviews from Nikesh Shukla, Salena Godden and Darren Chetty. It’s a work exploring dual identities and a call to find empathy in a divided world.

Bishi is a singer, electronic rock-sitarist, composer, producer, and performer born in London of Bengali heritage.

She’s trained in both Hindustani and Western classical styles, while her live performances make heavy use of new technologies, including interactive bodysuits and live-coded audiovisual environments.

In 2016, BISHI founded WITCiH, the Women In Technology Creative Industries Hub, a platform to elevate the voices of women and non-binary practitioners in tech. In 2020 she launched the podcast Creative Women in Tech.

A passionate advocate for equality and inclusion, BISHI is an ambassador for The Featured Artists Coalition, Imogen Heap’s Creative Passport, and sits on the board of the F-List.
