Electronica / Experimental
Blushing Satellite invites the listener on an inward journey through transcending melodies and soulful poetry backed by intricate grooves. The band does not believe in writing straightforward, pop songs but instead approaches the idea of music as a form of therapy through cymatics. The band is the brainchild of Los Angeles Music Academy (LAMA) graduate, Ramanan Chandramouli, who has played guitar alongside Brad Rabuchin (Ray Charles), Philip Bynoe (Steve Vai), Tim Curle (Josh Groban) and has extensively toured the United States/Dubai/Malaysia. In India he has performed numerous times with Thermal and a Quarter, Lou Majaw, Adil & Vasundhara to name a few and has opened for the legendary John Mclaughlin from Shakthi and Mahavishnu Orchestra.
Fronting the band, vocalist Mahesh Raghunandan is a singer-songwriter who has performed with and supported international artists such as Christian Galvez, Lucy Rose and Luke-Sital Singh. He has also played at various stages across the country such as Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Stage42 Festival and The Great Indian Octoberfest. Prabhu Muraleedharan is a drummer and musician based out of Bangalore. Having been part of various acts such as Adam and the Fish Eyed Poets, The Shakey Rays and Opposite Sex, Prabhu has toured and performed in many music festivals such as the NH7 Weekender, Octoberfest and MAD Festival over the years. Prabhu was also the recipient of the Toto Funds the Arts prize for his contribution to the Adam and the Fish Eyed Poets' album titled ’Songs from an Island’. Arjun Ramdas, a bass prodigy, forms the skeletal core for Blushing Satellite’s music, whose sublime grooves and creative ideas lay the foundation for the band’s sound.
