Kapil Seshasayee (Scotland)

Kapil Seshasayee is a polymath, and a true original talent, both as a songwriter and as a soundsmith, a one man combination of Scott Walker, Blood Orange, Arca and Richard Dawson, creating something wholly unique. Combining electronica flourishes evoking FKA Twigs with Indian Classical guitar ornamentations, stunning vocals and a penchant for unorthodox instrumentation such as the aquaphone, Kapil manages to be truly experimental yet still accessible.

Building on the momentum of his acclaimed debut album A Sacred Bore — featured in Pitchfork, VICE, BBC Introducing, The Guardian, The Quietus, and Rolling Stone India — Kapil makes an eclectic shift away from his experimental roots towards a psychedelic crossover of R&B and avant Indian classical on his upcoming album, Laal.

Kapil has shared festival bills at SXSW, Latitude Festival, Celtic Connections, Cardiff Psych Festival & SOLAS Festival with the likes of Gaelynn Lea, Ben Folds, Raghu Dixit & Damo Suzuki – developing a reputation as an engrossing and engaging live performer.
