This event is already over but head home to check out other events.
'You Can Sit with Us' is an evening conceptualised and curated by musician and performer, Nush Lewis.
Antisocial is going to be converted into a cosy and intimate space where both acts are going to be within reach of the audience during their performances. And there by inviting you to sit with them while they take you on a journey through their musical spaces.
Nush Lewis is a versatile multi-instrumentalist, composer and singer-songwriter based in Mumbai, India. With moody vocal lines, pensive compositions, combined with a unique production ethos, her musicality can best be described as minimal acoustic, with intricate melodic lines set upon ephemeral soundscapes. Donning multiple hats, as a composer, she’s collaborated with producer Ayan De in 2015 and released her debut EP “Fused”, which was critically acclaimed. In April 2019 she released her second EP, “Bridges”, which is an art collaborative concept piece with artist, Vaishnavi Kumar. “Bridges” set itself apart from Lewis’s previous work as it musically included live elements as well as strong visual elements. She's currently working on her third EP titled Forgotten Verses. Having multiple performance modules, as a solo act, band, and as part of multiple collaborative efforts, her performances showcase these encapsulating creations.
Kamakshi Khanna is a Delhi-based singer/songwriter whose music draws inspiration from
diverse influences ranging from RnB and Soul to Pop and Indie Folk. Her journey is one of
conscious reinvention as she continues to embrace new styles, and experiment with her sonic
identity. An overthinker and daydreamer, most of Kamakshi’s ideas come from sudden spurts of
introspection inspired by her lived experiences and her tendency to attach emotional depth to
the mundane. For a lot of her listeners, her music embodies strength in vulnerability and her
songs are earworms for solitude and reflection. Having established herself in the Indie music
scene with numerous live performances across the country and collaborations, in 2020
Kamakshi released her first Hindi single, ‘Qareeb’, a song about a girl who grows and learns to
love herself. Qareeb received widespread critical acclaim with over 1.8M views on YouTube and
1M+ audio streams across platforms. The song also won Rolling Stone India’s ‘Song Of The
Year’ award in the second edition of ‘The Indies’.
Apart from her major releases, Kamakshi also runs a unique series on Instagram & Youtube
called Green Room Sessions, where she shares the most initial, and stripped down versions of
her unreleased music. The series has gone on to receive a lot of love from her fans with 300K+
views across all platforms.
Her noteworthy performances include major festivals (NH7 Weekender & Vh1 Supersonic) as
well as intimate concerts (House Concerts, Sofar Sounds). In 2018, she performed a solo US
tour across cities like New York, LA and Austin. She also appeared on Season 1 of India’s first
English singing reality TV show, The Stage, and finished as one of the top 6 contestants.
