True to their name, Avial (a mixed-vegetable delicacy) blends malayalam poetry with contemporary alternative rock music.
With elements of indie rock and folk music underlying an electronic feel, Avial’s music has overcome language barriers not only in India, but is also drawing fans from across the sub-continent and the globe. It has an increasing fan following, with a revolutionary approach in today’s contemporary music scene in India.
The band members come from an in-depth musical background, with a diverse exposure of working with different bands, before they could come together. In search of something more intrinsic, with a sense of belonging, Avial discovered and articulated the expression in their own mother tongue, dared to express their music with their self-titled debut album.
Fetching a great name for them selves, Avial is one of the most sought after Indian bands today, transcending genres, and justifying the term – “Alternative Malayalam Rock”
