Lagori makes music that reflects the face of the modern Indian youth. This Bangalore-based band combines Indian classical melodies and inflections with Rock music, resulting in an interesting mix that is high on energy, while being catchy and soulful at the same time.
Pronounced 'La-go-ree', the band gets its name from the popular street game played in south India. The band is fascinated by the rich diversity of culture that exists in the country -- especially the evolving definition of what it means to be 'Indian'. Having grown up in the cosmopolitan city of Bangalore -- a city that is a melting pot of cultures, ideas, languages and beliefs -- Lagori's music reflects the varied influences of each band member, culminating in unique, fresh and honest sound. In a short time, their music has won them a growing and passionate fan base, both online and offline.
The band's live act is an energetic 90 minute performance that includes material from their first album, sung in Hindi and Kannada (the language spoken in Karnataka, the band's home state), and interesting covers and mashups of music they are influenced by.Lagori has currently released their first studio album online and is looking at an official release this may/june.
The self titled debut album is now available at http://www.oklisten.com/album/lagori
