Meet flautist Shriram Sampath and percussionist Swarupa Ananth, the master minds behind the ethnotronic band – Filter Coffee. Their USP lies in merging electronic beats with Indian classical music. Both of them are trained classical musicians and wanted to change the palette of how Indian classical music is consumed. In their own words, “Put together some guitar riffs, the sound of a bamboo flute, a tabla, throw in a funky electronic groove, brew it with some earthly vocals and you get ‘FILTER COFFEE’.” We caught up with the duo over a cup of coffee (of course!) and here are some excerpts from the conversation.
