Traditional instruments used in contemporary style
Sometimes folk, sometimes not, India Electric Co. use traditional instruments in contemporary styles to explore diverse themes from Eastern Europe, Irish traditions and modern urban alienation to end up with something “quirky and glittery – a veritable musical magpie’s nest.” – BBC Radio 3.
Their 2015 debut album release was followed by a world tour with Midge Ure, with whom they’ve worked extensively. With live sessions on BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music, performances at Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Festival, the duo are now embarking on their own headline tour.
