Johnnie Walker – The Journey is back in Mumbai for its third run, and the lineup is pretty damn brilliant.
Bringing internationally renowned artists, who are performing for the first time in India, the festival is back. It promises to be one hell of an evening with some of the best names in international music, film, and theatre, and some world-class entertainment. We’re going to see brilliant artists like Giorgio Moroder, Explosions in the Sky and Tycho, along with theatre group Leo, and we could not be more excited.
Giorgio Moroder holds three Oscars, four Grammys and four Golden Globes, with more than 100 gold and platinum records. The disco and electronic music trailblazer, this genius has collaborated with musical like Skrillex, Barbra Streisand, Elton John, Cher, Blondie, Freddie Mercury, and David Bowie. Here’s his track with Daft Punk:
The post-rock group Explosions In The Sky are the veritable definition of brilliance. Originally from Texas, USA the band has managed to create a dedicated fan base among post-rock fans from all over the world, because of how they use their ambient, calming and instrumental sound to explain and elucidate worldly truths. Their tracks tell the stories you’ve lived and stories you wish you had.
Scott Hansen, aka Tycho, is truly an ambient electronic genius. His creative vision attempts to brings together sound and light, music and color, space and silence. With ISO50 as his design name, Tycho’s live shows are known to be audio-visual experiences that are at once soothing, energetic, and deeply inspiring. Listen to some of his stuff here:
Leo is a delightfully mind-bending theatre act who take inspiration from the confusion that results from being part of a fast-paced, constantly changing world. With actor and director Daniel Brire, the group uses innovative projection technology and a unique synthesis of physicality and illusion, to challenge senses, confront the physically impossible, and rediscover what makes us human.
