Kaleekarma is foremost a storyteller. She uses music as the medium to weave together a richly detailed tapestry of theatrical tales, and is drawn to organic, ethnic, retro, acid and folk sounds. Her primary aim as an artist is to guide the listener on a journey through shifting soundscapes and states of mind, from peaceful and unhurried to intense and other-worldly, with much that can and does come in between.
Introduced to the world of electronic music in 2010, her curiosity and interest was piqued immediately and she started seeking out sounds and learning to mix music that stirred her soul. Her first chance to take control of the console came at a house party in 2012 – that’s where Kaleekarma came into being, as this house-party stint got her invited to play at a venue in Mumbai. She went on to play at small events and venues across India which gave her a space to experiment and the chance to keep learning. This period of practise and exploration played an important role in helping her define her tastes and set intentions towards her craft.
In early 2015, Kaleekarma played her first international gig in Mauritius, which widened her exposure and gave her music a reach beyond India. In the following years, she found herself in the company of a more dedicated breed of music enthusiasts and listeners. She went on to share her mixes with and gain visibility through music portals such as Etheral Kollektiv, Boxout.fm, Wild City, Stamp The Wax and Getting Deeper. Having played in all the major metropolitan cities across India, Kaleekarma enjoys a level of national recognition in the underground music space in the country and has had the opportunity to play alongside touring international artists such as Stimming, Parra For Cuva, HVOB, Stavroz, Zero7, Free The Robots and A Guy Called Gerald, amongst others.
