Really excited to Announce the successful applicant of our open call residency opportunity for female, trans & non-binary musicians; London-based composer, violinist and DJ Vindya.
During her Samarbeta residency at Islington Mill, Vindya will explore ways of combining Konnokol, an art form which can be defined as the vocal performance of percussion syllables in South Indian Carnatic music, and Techno, a four-to-the-floor electronic dance music genre.
“The idea behind this project would be to take the music I compose for the concert hall onto the dance floor." Vinthya Perinpanathan
Due to begin her PhD in Sri Lankan ritualistic and religious music in September 2023, Vinthya's British-Sri Lankan identity is expressed through her combining of Western and South Asian music traditions. Having more than one string to her bow, she has flourished in the UK dance music scene and become known for her pristine techno selections under alias 'Vindya', filling dancefloors across the country.
