Nights At The Circus (Gryphon Records)

Never Seen Your Face (Gryphon Records)
On My Own Again (released June '08 on Gryphon Records)

Bitpop (Brainlove Records)



'The most wonderful part of Bishi's appeal is that she appeals to so many.'

2008 has been an exciting year! Highlights include..
Recording with a tango orchestra in Buenos Aires, the Times Award nomination for the album, being a guest on Woman's Hour (BBC Radio 4 institution), great shows at Glastonbury and Latitude, a concert of the whole album with the London Symphony Orchestra Strings and TV appearances on The Culture Show and Johnathan Ross.

We are all looking forward to an incredible 2009..

Work has started on the new album. As ever Bishi is exploring Britain ancient and modern in her own unique way. With inspirations as diverse as Derek Jarman, The Who, Tallis, Pendulum, Chaucer and Boudica it promises to be a heady mix and a heavy show!

Some background info...
Singer, multi instrumentalist & DJ, Bishi was born in Earls Court to a Bengali musical family; her mother is an EMI signed artist to this day. She has studied Sitar at The Ravi Shankar School for Music and has a passion for English & East European folk, progressive pop & electronica.

Her album 'Nights at The Circus' has been critically acclaimed and was nominated for a South Bank Show Award in 2008.

Fusing British pop with her folk influences and ruminations of urban life she says: "I have based the album on being an outsider. The space between two cultures can be confusing, but it can also be very energetic".

The album title is inspired by Angela Carter's novel of the same name, a tale of a half-caste hybrid performer, whose dark adventures cover vast regions of the world, whilst having firm roots in the London Underground.

Well known as the DJ and ‘face' of London's notorious cult nightclub Kash Point, Bishi still enjoys a healthy nightlife. The up beat and dancey approach to the single mixes reflect this part of Bishi's personality "l've always loved DJing and a good night out, I enjoy making music to party to!"
