Jatayu is a Carnatic jazz-rock quartet from Chennai, India. Taking their name from the mythical bird which appears in the Ramayana, Jatayu create a soundscape which spans a multitude of genres: Indian Carnatic, blues, jazz and psychedelic rock mixed along with some elements of funk and metal. Their unique sound is characterized by guitarist Shylu Ravindran's heady use of the Indian Carnatic guitar. Jatayu casually toss aside the stereotype of the average 'fusion' band by blurring the lines between genres to rise above them. A reflection of modern India - rooted in a centuries old art form, yet current and collaborative in approach and sonic fabric. Jatayu pushes the boundaries of 'traditional' music by leaps and bounds, while still retaining the art and sensibility of their foundations.
