Well known on the local underground electronic, scene, Sunara is one of the few DJs in the country who has dared to break away from the relentless house and techno-oriented beats dished out by her peers and into groovier territories like glitch-hop, nu-Jazz, hip-hop, funk and electroswing. With her unique blend of funky and laid-back beats delivered with integrity and style, Sunara has made a name for herself as one of the most creative and entertaining DJs on the local circuit and across both genders.

YIDAM

Yidam is Varun Desai’s projection of electronic ambient and chillout music. Manipulating and producing sounds since the mid-nineties, Varun’s habit of digging for eclectic music and playing for spaces resulted in focusing on downtempo electronica and performing at alternative stages and unconventional venues. Gigging in the States resulted in the formation of ChillUmafia DJ collective with Damon & Robyo in 2005. The subsequent years were spent managing a record label (DBR), experimenting with sound-healing & organising events in NYC and Chicago. After performing at Burning Man in 2008, Varun moved back to Kolkata to start a net-label (liquidfrequency.com), an event company (littlei.in) and set up a production studio. Since 2009 his DJ sets and tracks have been heard in India, Nepal, Poland, Switzerland, Germany and Portugal. A background in electronics has also resulted in the use of analog synths, digital controllers and interactive video as part of collaboration projects with jazz musicians and live electronic acts.
