Ami Dang
Amrita “Ami” Kaur Dang is a South Asian-American vocalist, sitarist, composer and producer from Baltimore. Her sound ranges from North Indian classical fused with noise/ambient electronics to beat-driven psych and experimental dancepop. The work references her musical education and hybrid identity as well as the chaos and spirituality of the landscapes of both Baltimore and urban India.

Picking up her first sitar when she was twelve years old, Dang has studied North Indian classical music (voice and sitar) in both New Delhi and Maryland, and she also holds a degree in music technology & composition from Oberlin College Conservatory of Music.

Her debut album Hukam came out in 2011 on Ehse Records to critical acclaim. She delved further into the sounds of experimental-indiepop on Uni Sun, her sophomore album that was released on Friends Records in 2016. Along with cellist Alexa Richardson, Ami is ½ of Raw Silk, who released their self-titled debut album in June 2018.

Her next album Parted Plains, featuring strictly sitar and electronics, will be released in 2019 on Leaving Records.

Magnetic Bells
Magnetic Bells is the collaborative project of multi-instrumentalist Jordan Burgis (leader of spontaneous/minimalist folk-rock ensemble Magnetic Dog) and acclaimed analog synthesist duo Alison Stout and Darian Scatton (Hallowed Bells, Bell Tone Synth Works).
