BLACK - The Lounge Bar

BLACK presents FOCAL featuring. Yidam [Cumbia/Tropical House/Bass] on Friday 23rd September 2016 from 10pm - 2am **Beer buckets** - Rs. 1000 AI for 5 beers **Drinks special** - 1:1 on Chivas & Absolut -- After more than a year long hiatus from playing in Kolkata, Yidam is back with a new 4 hour set that blends the music of Latin/South America with House, Dub and modern beat making techniques. The sounds of Digital Cumbia and Tropical House/Bass promise you a journey that takes you flying through most soulful and lush expanses of Columbia, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Ecuador, Brazil and beautiful places beyond. About Yidam: Discovering electronic music in the mid-90s in India, Varun’s habit of compiling and manipulating sounds led to a DJ career under several aliases until he found the name Yidam, a concept synonymous with a meditative approach to music. Gigging extensively in the US, he formed the chillUmafia DJ collective with DJ Damon from Poland in 2005. Later years were spent managing a record label (DBR) and organising events around the country. After his finale stateside gig at Burning Man in 2008, Varun returned to his hometown, Kolkata. Since then his sets and tracks have been heard in Nepal, Poland, Switzerland, Germany & Portugal and his live shows at festivals like Boom (2012) and Goa Dupa (2010/2012). A background in computer engineering has also now led to new projects: 5volts & varundo which involves the use of analog synthesizers, digital sensors & interactive coding to create immersive audio-visual experiences. yidam.com/ -- Produced by: Littlei / culturing imagination / littlei.in/ Promoted by: Duzdozen / promoting deeper shades of house and techno/ www.facebook.com/dusdozen
