The Milk Factory says
Brisbane / Delhi based singer songwriter, Avi, plays the music from his critically acclaimed folk fusion album ‘Eyes On the Radio’ at The Milk Factory on Sunday 15 May 2016.

MTV Indies described Avi’s music as “Bringing two musical worlds, Indian and Western, together and fusing them in a blissful earthly feel is what Avijit Misra does with…Avi & The Uprising. ’

NME had this to say about Avi’s album ‘Eyes On the Radio’ - “The inherent Indian vibe of ‘Eyes On The Radio’,” begins to spool out from the very beginning with the keening tanpura drone that underscores ‘Rebirth’. Sub-continental sounds abound on the album with Eastern instruments like the esraj, morchang and riveting Rajasthani folk harmonically enmeshed with acoustic guitars, flamenco finger picking and blues to create a sound that is global and yet firmly rooted in India.”

This is how The Score Magazine described Avi’s bass baritone -‘'Avi & The Uprising's new release “Boom Boom Shiva” is all about the focality of Avi's incredible voice. Seriously, this man sounds like God”.

Avi’s Uprising is about expressing a post colonial identity, post nationalistic polity and post religious self reflection.

Avi has curated the evening with singer songwriters from Brisbane who inspire him as friends and as artists. West End favourite Ofa Fanaika who sings for Captain Dreamboat and Chocolate Strings, Pakistani born East London legend Babar Luck who played with King Prawn and Brisbane songstress Harmony Domaille of Emmett and Mabel fame will be other highlights of the evening.

Celebrate the diversity in song which reflects Brisbane’s contemporary world city vibe.

Doors Open at 5pm. $10.
