Formed by singer/songwriter Bindu Subramaniam and violinist/composer Ambi, SubraMania fuses traditional Indian music with elements of pop, rock and jazz to create contemporary world music. In addition to creating their own material in English and traditional Indian languages, SubraMania works with well-known classics and jazz standards to interpret them in a completely new light. It has built on a multigenerational musical tradition but with a sound that is distinctly its own.
Both Bindu and Ambi are established solo performers with awards, hundreds of stage performances and multiple albums to their credit. They created SubraMania as a new voice for contemporary world music with the music video for their first release, ‘Days in the Sun’, garnering over a million views on Facebook. Their second release was the Flamenco inspired ‘Esperanza’.
SubraMania has performed across Europe, the United States and India. They have collaborated with Grammy-winners Hubert Laws and Ernie Watts, tuba virtuoso Oystein Baadsvik, gypsy violin legend Roby Lakatos, Blues harmonica player Corky Siegel, African kora player Solo Cissokho, Hungarian cimbalom player Jeno Lizstes, Flamenco guitarist Carlos Blanco, Bollywood music director Aadesh Srivastav, Indi-pop star Lesle Lewis, American Idol drummer Russ Miller and their parents violin icon Dr. L. Subramaniam and Bollywood legend Kavita Krishnamurti Subramaniam.
