Join Bishi for her debut launch of the AV show for Let My Country Awake - an electronic, classical album composed for voice looper, sitar & electronics complete with live coded visuals by Output Arts.

The album, co-produced with composer Jeff Cook, was originally commissioned by National Sawdust, New York. The title, ‘Let My Country Awake,’ is a quote from the Nobel prize winning poet Rabindranath Tagore’s ‘Where The Mind Is Without Fear,’ written before India’s independence. It represents Tagore’s vision of a new and awakened India.

The album is part inspired by the essay collection, ‘The Good Immigrant,’ edited by Nikesh Shukla, who’s voice features along with writers Darren Chetty & Salena Godden.

‘Bishi’s interest in pop mediums exists through a fundamental understanding of the experimental, avant-garde, performing arts traditions of many centuries. I live for her.’ – Nico Muhly, Bomb Magazine

**** ‘Brave, beautiful and all the more powerful for being so out there.’ - Evening Standard

‘Bishi is a vocally astounding, rock-sitar-wielding, live-looping, creative-female-platform-founding performer and composer.’ – Wylde Magazine
