LEHERA brings together their roots in North and South Indian classical music and Western musical forms to create a genre – tripping vibe both energetic and contemplative. Vocals in English and Classical Indian styles intertwine with Hindustani slide guitar, violin, bamboo flutes and vocal harmonics and are driven by exciting Ghatam (Clay pot drum), Konnakol(Carnatic drum language) and world percussion peppered with funky and bluesy guitaring.
