Within a year of founding, they have catapulted themselves from an intimate 200-person gathering to the fastest growing brand in electronic music. Founded in 2022, Indo Warehouse is a New York collective, experiential series, and record label that authentically merges the expanse of South Asian culture with electronic music. Their diverse yet decidedly melodic sound, dubbed “Indo House,” draws from the founders’ diverse cultural roots. Kahani, aka Armaan Gupta, and Kunal Merchant are lauded by Mixmag and Rolling Stone for their music and events where traditional dance music motifs intermingle with percussion, vocals, and textures of a diverse region.
Fresh off the success of their sold-out North America tour, the famed collective is set to bring their immersive series that presents South Asian contemporary electronic sounds to Indian shores for the very first-time next year. Kickstarting their tour with a dedicated stage featuring Indo Warehouse artists at Sunburn Goa on 31st December, the collective will trek to Bengaluru on 7th January, Pune on 12th January, Ahmedabad on 13th January, New Delhi on 19th January followed by Chandigarh on 20th January, Mumbai on 25th January, Kolkata on 26th January and finally wrap up with Hyderabad on 28th January.
Indo Warehouse is poised to become a cultural touchstone, celebrating and elevating the beauty of South Asian culture within the global music landscape through its carefully curated events, releases, and collaborations. Their dedication to preserving and promoting the South Asian musical heritage while embracing innovation has garnered widespread acclaim and accolades including the 1001 Tracklist’s Future of Dance Award as two of the top music producers in the world. In the past year alone, the collective released their debut compilation, “Year One,” and hosted a series of successful sold-out shows at New York’s famed Avant Gardner and Brooklyn Mirage. In the months following, they performed sold out shows in their debuts in London and at Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE).
Karan Singh, CEO, Sunburn Festival states “Indo Warehouse is known to push the creative boundaries of electronic music and brings a sense of community and connection with their live performances. This massive 10-city maiden tour across India promises to be a one-of-its-kind spectacle, one that will showcase the depth of South Asian culture, music, and rhythm within the global language of house and techno.”
Kahani of Indo Warehouse states, “We’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time. Being brought up on the other side of the world, our unique views of culture help us craft experiences that are one of one. With India’s support, we can define a sound that will open doors for South Asian artists around the world. The next “big thing” is right here. See you soon!”
Kunal Merchant of Indo Warehouse states, “I couldn’t be more excited for this tour! Ten incredible moments to dance with our people, performing music that is so deeply rooted in our culture, and connecting with an incredibly seasoned electronic music community. Massive thanks to Sunburn for believing in our vision and presenting this tour with so much love.”
