Great musicis madeeverywhere in the world. Language is no barrier when you hear a songthatoffers some emotional or melodic connection. Alluri is a musicianfromHyderabad, who’s impossible to categorize, but his music is as grandandeuphoric as anything you’d find from Arcade Fire and has a touch ofMorriconetoo. Classical music was absorbed in his teens then he learned guitarwhilelistening to acts like Doves and Morrissey during his UK studies. Nowworkingbetween India, the UK, and Italy, he’s teamed up with Museproducer/mixer TommassoColliva and Italian musician Massimo Martelotta, fromcult ‘cinematicItalo-funk’ band Calibro 35, on this powerful and unique musicsung in Telugu.
