Electrik Pô – Urban electric jazz | 22nd April 2022

The well-known music producer Fuzzy Logic comes back to India with two talented musicians he met in France, his adoptive country! They present a powerful ethnic-electro performance, mixing electronic and organic sounds.

With influences ranging from the smooth, ambient electro of Niels Petter Molvaerd to the weighty, Lo-fi sounds of Massive Attack or Portishead, the band fuses an orientalist melodic approach, comparable to the style of Ibrahim Maalouf with the rhythmic adventurism of the Balkan Beat Box collective. On stage, Electrik Pô brings to light this contrast between today’s urban, hyper computerized world and the organic animal that always lives within us.

Tour produced by : Gatecrash and Jazz in India | Supported by Exodus

Po is the name of the panda in the film Kung Fu Panda who serendipitously becomes a kung fu master in spite of all odds. The name Po embodies this spirit of chance or fate that brought three musicians from vastly different backgrounds together. Add some electricity to this combination and you have Electrik Pô! The music of Electrik Pô reflects perfectly the symbolism of this “Electric” Panda in the physical form of Buddha embodying Strength, Softness and Peace, while the soul (Po meaning “Soul” in Mandarin) is festive and in constant moth on. It presents a vision of the world as it is today, still wild, animalistic and hyper urban.
