A respected and sought after DJ, Kalyani’s reputation as one of Melbourne’s most dynamic and captivating live performers has been rapidly growing. Kalyani’s recent release Local Woman reworks pop songs from the likes of Jessica Mauboy and Silverchair. Both intimate and expansive, these experimental bootlegs convey the working of pop music into the most personal parts of our lives. The minimal, considered productions conjure a dream state of hazy familiarity, allowing for a new intimacy to be felt. Kalyani pulls them apart and puts them back together, stripping them down to their emotional core, and offering them buck to us, rawer, stranger, deeper.
