Amrita “Ami” Kaur Dang is a South Asian-American vocalist, sitarist, composer and producer from Baltimore.
Her sound ranges from North Indian classical fused with noise/ambient electronics to beat-driven psych and experimental dancepop. The work references her hybrid identity as a first-generation South Asian-American, Sikh upbringing, musical education, as well as the chaos and spirituality of the landscapes of both Baltimore and urban India.
Her debut album Hukam was released via Ehse Records to critical acclaim. She further refined her sound on Uni Sun, her sophomore album that was released on Friends Records in 2016.
In her third album Parted Plains (Leaving Records, 2019) featuring sitar and electronics, she draws inspiration from South Asian and Middle Eastern folktales, specifically, the four tragic romances of Punjab, Sohni Mahiwal, Sassi Punnun, Heer Ranjha, and Mirza Sahiba; Flora Annie Steel’s Tales of the Punjab: Folklore of India, and selected stories from One Thousand and One Nights. Galvanized by the Western interpretations of these stories, Parted Plains unfolds as a new sort of soundtrack for a yet-to-be written folktale that is neither Eastern nor Western, not traditional or contemporary--but somewhere in between.
She is also 1/2 of Raw Silk (feat. cello, sitar, voice, and electronics) and collaborated with Animal Collective on "Suspend the Time," their bittersweet lullaby to bring awareness to ocean acidification due to climate change.
