Description

Khanvict:

Surrey-based Asad Khan (aka Khanvict) is an escape artist. His cinematic production style, which has led to 100K monthly listeners on spotify and over 10 million streams online, transports the listener to the desert expanses and jungle paradises from which he borrows inspiration. Khanvict deftly manages to stay close to his Pakistani roots, while drawing  from artists like Clozee and Troyboi to create a contemporary low-end homage to his homeland. 

Last year saw Khanvict’s ‘Closer’ receive the Prism Prize, Canada’s top music video award. The politically charged song has racked up almost 5 Million plays on YouTube, seen him gain over 60K subscribers on the platform, and garnered global press from Rolling Stone to Times of India to The Hindu. The short film supporting the song was a collaboration involving filmmaker Anjali Nayar, model / activist Seema Hari and a hauntingly beautiful exploration of issues of colorism, casteism and misogyny in South Asian culture. That song, and Khanvict’s recent remix of AR Rahman’s ‘Tere Bina’, were both featured in the recent hit Disney show ‘Ms Marvel’. 

Coming up in the South Asian community of Surrey, BC, Khanvict’s heart has always been in the live experience. The upcoming Arrival EP and tour are an exploration of the deep relationship between he and frequent collaborator Raaginder. The artists have spent much of the last year conceiving, writing, and building this work of art - a visionary experience combining custom visuals, live instrumentation and live electronica. Both artists applaud the recent upsurge in South Asian representation and are excited to level up the production and performance quality. This is a show that symbolizes the coming of age of an entire community, aptly named - ‘The Arrival Tour’.

Raaginder

Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, is a multi-talented artist known for his prowess as a violinist, composer, and songwriter. With deep-rooted training in the ancient art of Indian Classical music, he masterfully weaves soul-stirring melodies on the violin.

His creative journey has given birth to several groundbreaking albums, seamlessly blending the rich tapestry of Indian classical music with contemporary sounds. Within this musical universe, Raaginder transcends boundaries, creating a fresh soundscape that defines its own genre. His compositions traverse the spectrum from velvety R&B vocals to entrancing raga-based pop, crafting lyrical and rhythmic experiences that captivate the senses.

Having graced prestigious stages worldwide, including iconic venues like The White House, Wembley Arena, and the Kennedy Center, Raaginder's artistry consistently delivers a powerful and captivating auditory adventure for his audience.
