Band Bio

We are an Indian Folk Electronic ensemble from Kerala, South India.Vidwan is an initiative to present music with no boundaries, and a platform for the band to bring together their collective influences from all over the world and manifest it in music. Vidwan derives its influences from Hindustani and Carnatic music of India, as well as Jazz, Hip-Hop and Electronic music.Each member of the band comes from various different backgrounds of music,all combined to form a rich unique flavor that pleases all tastes of crowds.

How It All Started

Tao lives near a small lake valled Vellayi Kayal. His place was the band's usual jam session center. One day after a small swim in the lake, Yakzan, Tao, Vivek, Ben and Saju(An ex member of the band) started jamming as usual. It suddenly dawned upon them that they had a unique flavor of music that had the potential to make it big. And thus the band was formed. That very day, we made our first two songs, 'Ellaelo' and 'Toddy'. The band name 'Vidwan' came way after that. We thought long and hard for a good catchy name that the Kerala crowd would be able to connect to. Thus the name 'Vidwan', meaning 'Specialists in what they do'. None of us are Vidwans in the real world, might as well have the name Vidwan for fun sake.

Song Chemistry

Our songs will make you want to groove to it if you don't know the language we sing it in. We mix and match folk song with electronic music that is suitable for all audiences, at the same time,we stay well rooted to our Kerala roots.
