Amrita “Ami” Kaur Dang is a South Asian-American vocalist, sitarist, composer and producer from Baltimore. Her sound ranges from North Indian classical fused with noise/ambient electronics to beat-driven psych and experimental dancepop. The work references her hybrid identity as a first-generation South Asian-American, Sikh upbringing, musical education, as well as the chaos and spirituality of the landscapes of both Baltimore and urban India. Her music defies genre, and she has shared bills with many pop, rock, world, folk, hip hop, and experimental acts, including Future Islands, Chairlift, A Hawk and A Hacksaw, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Beach House, Wye Oak, Lil B, Bonnie Prince Billy, and Dan Deacon. Her next album Parted Plains, featuring strictly sitar and electronics, will be released in 2019 on Leaving Records.
“Her voice is heavenly—strong, sensitive, elastic, wise, warm, sweet and a million other honey-flavored adjectives… Ami’s music fuses deeply personal elements unique to her upbringing in a Sikh-American household—ancient Indian texts and hymns meld with Bollywood and electronic music. The result is something completely mesmerizing.”
