Biography

With their name signifying the Hindu word for “revolving around” or “encircling,” Parikrama’s sound draws upon a wide spectrum of genres, ranging from blues to classical Indian. While deeply inspired by bands such as Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Jimi Hendrix, the six-member band also incorporates Indian instruments such as the mridangam, tabla, and flute into their traditional Western combination of guitar, drums, and keyboards. This maximum INDIA performance is presented under the auspices of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations, New Delhi.
