Welcome to the Blushing Satellite experience!
The band invites the listener on an inward journey through transcending melodies and soulful poetry backed by intricate grooves. The intention is to provide healing, catharsis and therapy in a world where happiness and joy is thought to be achieved by materialistic pursuit, fame and power.
The composition process is unique wherein the songs refrain from following a traditional verse, chorus and bridge structure. Instead they take the audience on a meditative journey through different sonic and vibrant sections of music. The music is synonymous with “Life & Nature”- transient, dynamic and unpredictable.
Blushing Satellite’s latest album “The Union” draws its inspiration from multiple interpretations – the union of Shiva & Shakti, Yin & Yang, Male & Female and Vibration with Silence. This album is an offering to the Universal Mother’s unconditional love. The concepts are derived from eastern philosophical teachings like Zen and Vedanta while the instrumentation and performance is heavily influenced and inspired by African American culture.
Since the conception of the project in April 2015, the band has released an EP, full length album and performed in various venues and festivals across India. The music video for the track “Who Am I” was featured in Rolling Stones’ ‘India’s 10 best videos of 2017’ and “The Union” album featured in The Hindu’s ‘Top 10 releases of 2017‘.
Blushing Satellite is the brainchild of Los Angeles Music Academy (LAMA) graduate, Ramanan Chandramouli, who has played guitar alongside Brad Rabuchin (Ray Charles), Philip Bynoe (Steve Vai), Tim Curle (Josh Groban) and has extensively toured the United States, Dubai and Malaysia.
