Lifafa is Suryakant Sawhney, founder of Peter Cat of Recording Co, the celebrated psychadelic ensemble based out of Delhi.

The live electronic music he performs as ‘Lifafa’ presents a new and original soundscape, one far more inspired by the sounds of India itself, from both folk and religious music to vintage Bollywood. The sounds of Lifafa skirt between disco and house music to harmonium based Bhajans and tribal sounds on top of which Suryakant sings in both Hindi and English resulting in a unique and captivating experience.

Lifafa has been invited to play major festivals all over the world such as The Great Escape Festival, Serralves in Portugal, Wassermusik in Berlin and Magnetic Fields in India. He has successfully toured much of Asia including India, China, Thailand and Vietnam.

His last release was the acclaimed “In Hi Ko” Ep, in 2014 and he will be releasing a new album later this year.
