Sid Sriram

A multi-talented, genre-spanning R&B, soul and playback superstar who got his break working with Indian music giant A.R. Rahman and went on to perform in over 200 films, Indian-born and California-raised musician Sid Sriram forged his hybrid pop sound from his unique transcultural upbringing. Best known for his soulful soundtrack performances, Sriram’s music combines Indian Carnatic music, R&B, jazz, new age pop and alternative hypno-rock.

Priya Ragu

Multi-talented Tamil-Swiss singer and rapper Priya Ragu came to global attention with her distinct brand of “raguwavy”, a sonic tapestry that weaves together R&B, soul and vibrant electro beats with the traditional Tamil folk of her heritage. Her buzzy mixtape damshestamil (2021) and debut album Santhosam (2023) were hailed for their originality and next-generation sound.


Mixing traditional Punjabi folk vocals with UK garage, drill and Afrobeat, South London native Raf-Saperra has become one of his country’s most-talked about exports since his 2020 debut, “Glassy Riddim”. Led by his garage anthem “N.L.S. (Nach Le Soniye)” (2022) and last year’s killer mixtape debut Ruff Around the Edges, Saperra’s bhangra bops have been rocking everywhere from Berghain to Glastonbury.

Astral People

Since its formation in 2011, Astral People has become one of Australia’s most innovative artist management and international touring companies. Their roster of local artists includes Cosmo’s Midnight, Winston Surfshirt and Wave Racer, and they’ve toured in-demand international acts like Fred again…, 100 gecs, Stormzy, Arlo Parks and John Talabot.
