'A powerful and heady cocktail, bringing together the flavours and ingredients of four different continents,

and producing a sumptuous feast for the ears…'

Folk Radio UK

 

Mishra describe themselves as a global collective and have quickly established themselves as an imaginative, fresh new voice in folk. Their sumptuous blend of Indian percussive rhythms, low whistling Celtic melodies, British and North American traditional songs with hints of jazz combine to form a hard-to-define warm and vibrant music, affectionately described by Songlines Magazine as 'an airborne amalgam of cross-continental pollinations'.

 

In 2018 Mishra won Cambridge Folk Festival’s first ever Christian Raphael prize and used the prize money to record their debut album The Loft Tapes which features live-in-the-room analogue recordings of their uniquely accessible Indo-folk. Their new album RECLAIM expresses the joyous energy of reclaiming freedom after lockdown and was applauded by Folk and Tumble for 'capturing just about every essential aspect of traditional folk music'.
