Capital Group presents Holy District 2018
An award-winning rapper & hip-hop artist from Mumbai, India. Born and brought up in the ‘gullies’ of Mumbai. He has come to be known as ‘the Voice of the Streets’ - narrating tales of the people that he's grown up observing since childhood - and paying homage to the characteristics of the city. His talent came into the limelight when his award-winning 2013 release “Yeh Mera Bombay” went viral and thereafter received a lot of exposure on local radio stations across the country as well as international platforms such at Beats1 Worldwide and the BBC Asian Network. His 2015 summer-smash “Mere Gully Mein” was not only honored as the BEST VIDEO OF 2015 by Rolling Stone India, it also established him as one of the premier hip-hop acts in India and garnered him an international listenership. Titled as BEST NEW ARTIST 2015 by iTunes and Apple Music in India and as one of the top ARTISTS TO WATCH-OUT FOR IN 2016 by the BBC Asian Network. He is Vivian Fernandes aka Divine.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in religious studies, with an emphasis on South Asian religions. She is an Indian classical dancer who started dancing at the age of 7. While in fifth grade, Kumari discovered hip-hop through the Fugees' album The Score. By the age of 14, she was a noticed freestyle MC known as “Indian Princess” (IP) or “Raja Kumari”. During her artist career, she has contributed to several philanthropic activities through her performances including the creation of a hospital in Bangalore and a meditation hall in South India for the Vegesna Foundation, a school for physically disabled children. As a result, Kumari has been recognized as a benefactor by the Foundation for Indic Philosophy and Culture (Indic Foundation) and has been honored with the Kohinoor Award for excellence in the Classical Arts by the Governor of Tamil Nadu.
Kunaal Gurbaxani aka GURBAX is definitely one of the freshest DJ/producers to watch out for in the Indian bass music scene. From metal-head to bass-head, his journey started in the city of Bengaluru where he played guitar in punk rock and thrash metal bands. he has played shows in and around Atlanta and NYC including a recent performance at ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) and is now looking to catalyze the bass music movement in India. In a short span of 3 years since moving back, he has managed to play in every corner of Indian sub-continent, gather millions of plays online, hit #1 on the Indian iTunes Electronic Music Charts for his track ‘Aghori', as well as share the stage with a range of well-reputed artists such as Steve Aoki, Marshmello, NGHTMRE, Slander, Troyboi, Herobust, David Satori (Beats Antique), Christina Novelli, Hang Massive, GANZ, JSTJR, Fabian Mazur and GAUDI to name a few.
Out of the handful mainstream house music producers emerging from India, Anuraag Chadha a.k.a Madoc is surely among the front-runners in becoming one of the pioneers of ‘South Asia’s House Music Scene’. More of a dreamer & sometimes an extreme realist, Anuraag has traveled far & wide in search of his sound.
Shaan started his DJ/Producer career at the age of 15 and debuted at Asia’s premier music festival – Sunburn Goa 2010. He was the youngest DJ to play an international music festival and has quickly risen to become India’s Hottest DJ/ Producer. Since the very beginning, SHAAN has performed alongside the biggest names in the industry – Avicii, Afrojack, David Guetta, Hardwell, Swedish House Mafia, Tiesto, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Kaskade, Dash Berlin, Michael Woods – whether as Sunburn’s Resident DJ, or at Love Week, Marenostrum or on his very own SHAAN & Friends Stage at Sunburn Goa 2014. He is the first Indian DJ to play exclusive B2B sets with artists like Yves V (Tomorrowland Resident), Deniz Koyu, Arnej and Ale Mora.
