Indian artist Alluri breaks down cultural barriers with his first song in English.
As the famous quote from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow* goes, “music is the universal language of mankind”. Of all the artists we’ve come across in recent memory, few exemplify this quite like Alluri.
Alluri is a musician from Hyderabad, India who’s impossible to categorise, but his music is as grand and euphoric as anything you’d find from Arcade Fire. Just for good measure, he has a touch of Morricone thrown in too. Previously, Alluri has performed his music in the local Telugu language of Hyderabad. But latest track Don’t Lose Touch is Alluri’s first song in English, and it’s a strong indie-rock blast that sets a good precedent.
