Kartik Pillai


Though he acts as guitarist, trumpet player, and keyboardist for Delhi’s Peter Cat Recording Co., and as vocalist and guitarist for Begum, Kartik is mostly found at home making more music, seemingly at odds with the demand that kind of workload would seem to present on one’s time. His solo project Jamblu began in 2014, and two releases in, it would appear that his well of creativity is just beginning to be excavated.  His music touches on hip hop, ambient, and free jazz (as far as recent unreleased demos go) and it all comes together into a seamless whole. In listening to it, one is unsure if the reaction would be to should bob their head to it, or rather to place said head on a shelf for a more reflexive assessment.
