Shadow and Light was born on a cold November afternoon in New Delhi, from the efforts of two people - Pavithra Chari and Anindo Bose; to unlock the potential within a few notes of music. The styles of music infused in the compositions are Hindustani classical, pop, jazz, and electronic.
The songs on the album are written about personal milestones and obstacles, about the eternal mystery that we call life and the little everyday things that matter to us most. Shadow & Light have played at festivals and venues across the country including ‘Friends of Music’, ‘Chandigarh Jazz Festival’, ‘DIY Festival’ and ‘Fete de la Musique’. In 2015, they were chosen as the 1st runner ups of the ‘Sennheiser top 50’ competition and won the opportunity to record with one of Bollywood’s top production studios - ‘Flying Carpet Productions’. The band released their second album 'Elements' in February 2016 as well as a music video 'Dua' with Pepsi MTV Indies. Shadow and light were also invited to shoot with Kappa TV - a Malayalam speciality music television channel from the Mathrubhumi group with programs like Music Mojo.
