AARIFAH after having entered the world of independent music as a drummer, singer-songwriter and a guitarist, aims at exploring every aspect in this industry. Armed with a handful of heartfelt songs and her refreshingly earnest approach to live performance, she wins over any audience who can appreciate good, honest songwriting.
Having played at a handful of venues such as Blue Frog, Cafe Zoe, Bonobo, Summer House Cafe, AntiSOCIAL, High Spirits and festivals like Orange Festival, and Control ALT Delete, she has also played across cities in India. Her music has been featured on Ennui.Bomb’s Stupiditties compilation, BalconyTv, Rolling Stone India, Homegrown, TLC, Grazia, Cosmopolitan, MaedinIndia as well as on BuzzFeed.
Late 2016 led her to be a part of a music-centric show ‘Searching For Sounds’, a Red Bull initiative with electronica producer Sandunes. Her latest venture had her play drums for LA electronica artist and activist Madame Gandhi’s debut India Tour at Bonobo Mumbai.
Besides playing the drums for Ladies Compartment and Toycatcher she has pieced together a band with Yohann Coutinho on bass and Linford Dsouza on drums/percussion and is working on recording her Debut EP.
