Kumar Shome & The Punkawallahs - "Kanya" Lp Album Launch Feat. Xani, Jake Amy Trio

Kumar Shome & the Punkawallahs are a fiery Psych-Jazz-Funk group known for their intricate and energetic stylings. Led by frontman Kumar Shome, the triple guitar band features some of Melbourne’s best, building hypnotic polyrhythmic layers. The band’s debut vinyl, “Kanya”, features a heady mix of soulful, contemplative songs and electrifying dance tunes that tell Shome’s personal story, with songs celebrating his Indian culture, his experiences growing up in Australia and his journey through Melbourne’s music scene. Featuring supports from violinist/looper extraordinaire, Xani and high energy broken-beat jazz band, The Jake Amy Trio. This is going to be a great night of music, not to be missed. Save the date and see you then.

We acknowledge that this event will be held on Wurundjeri land of the Kulin Nation and recognise that sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
