PARA VAYU, a new form that evolved from the rock band VAYU, around since 1997, has been founded by Ravi Iyer. After the release of VAYU’s album titled ‘WINGS OF A DREAM’ in June 2009, Ravi Iyer and bassist Crosby Fernandes reformed VAYU to PARA VAYU – with ‘PARA’ meaning ‘beyond’ – thus marking an expansion from the mainstream ‘classic’ sound of VAYU into a more progressive sound of PARA VAYU. Para Vayu were joined by their long-time friend Soumitra Bhat on vocals in 2010 to complete the visionary trio behind PARA VAYU.
Ravi Iyer has been actively involved in the rock circuit since 1985. Since then, strong influences in metal, classic rock, blues, pop, jazz rock and even Hindustani classical music, initiated him to explore them in the music of PARA VAYU.
PARA VAYU ‘s music spans over a wide range of genres including classic rock, alternative, progressive, blues, funk, jazz rock et al. Music being free from boundaries, thought or judgement.
PARA VAYU has released its debut album ‘Soul Alive’ in April 2011.
After recording Soul Alive, PARA VAYU found the keyboard player they always wanted to have on board in the very young and prodigiously talented Crehyl Pereira.
