Musical Lineup

The Fanculos is a relatively new ska/reggae band from Bombay. The band comprises JJ (drums), Saurab Suman (bass), Ryan Sadri (tenor sax), Vinay Lobo (guitars, backing vocals) and Ramon Ibrahim (vocals, keys, trombone). With experienced hands at the reins, there is no doubt that this is going to be one band to watch out for at the flea.The Lightyears Explode:
They started a band towards the end of 2009 while they were in college. Guitarist, lead vocalist and songwriter Saurabh Roy along with bassist Shalom Bejamin and drummer Aaron Carvalho together form this angsty-sounding band. The Light Years Explode’s sound is along the lines of punk pop. The three of them are self-taught musicians. Saurabh, who grew up listening to The Beatles has been particularly inspired by John Lennon and Paul McCartney for their music genius, Aaron is more into Country music, while Shalom listens to just about everything.Kabir Cafe:
Largely influenced by renowned Kabir Folk Singer Padmashri Prahladji Tippaniya, Neeraj Arya has pioneered the genre known as Kabir Rock. Kabir Cafe is on a quest to ensure that Kabir’s versus are accessible through contemporary music to the rest of the world, who are alienated from traditional Kabir folk music.

Clayton + All Stars:
Coming to perform on one stage, catch Sid Couto, Nathan Thomas, Karan Joseph, Bradley Tellis, Rohan Mazumdar & Ankur Tewari at The Lil Flea as they jam it out together with Clayton Hogermeer to give an incredible performance. This is one show you wouldn’t want to miss.

All Jazz Jam:
Get ready to experience an incredible ensemble of some highly talented Jazz Musicians at The Lil Flea coming together for the first time to entertain you well into the night.

With the release of their much-awaited album Topiwalleh, Bangalore-based folk-rock band Swarathma come into their own as India’s leading folk rock acts. The sound of their sophomore offering, that comes three years after the eponymous first album, sees Swarathma getting comfortable in their own skin.

Prem Joshua:
Prem Joshua & Band are pioneers of a crossover sound that is nestled at the cusp of Eastern tradition and Western innovation. With a soul-searching and dexterous blend of sounds and instruments, the music draws the listener into an emotionally rewarding journey across diverse musical landscapes.

The main vision of project “ Thaalavattam” (A percussion based project) is to create music using innovative instruments made from waste plastic and metal (reduce. reuse and recycle). Thaalavattam aims to clean up the plastic waste that is plaguing India, through music. At the moment, Thaalavattam also conducts rhythm rush (A drum circle event) through which they try to encourage people to recycle and re-use waste materials.
