Komorebi is an electronica outfit from New Delhi, spearheaded by Tarana Marwah who started this project independently in February 2015. Komorebi, immensely inspired by Japanese Anime Sountracks, is a Japanese word that translates to - "Sunlight that filters through Tree Leaves." A twisted test-tube offspring of Pink Floyd, St. Vincent and Alt-J morphed into a haunting folklore ensemble, the nostalgic sound of Komorebi demands your attentive ears as the accordion and ukelele guide you into an ocean of vocal harmonies and euphoric ambience.
Mahima Dayal Mathur, professionally known as Bawari Basanti is a Hindustani Classical and Folk singer, recording artist and songwriter from New Delhi, India. Mahima started to learn music at the young age of nine, when her grandmother, Late Smt Lalita Dayal would take classes for classical music in their family home. A culturally rich foundation at home provided the foundation for her art and nourished her creative abilities. She later studied Hindustani Music under Jyotika Paust at Shri Ram Bhartiya Kala Kendra and then Prayaag Sangeet Samiti. She went to Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music to learn performing arts from Raphaelle Brochet and is currently working on collecting sounds and making experimental music.
