The project has been produced and commissioned by Asian Arts Agency as part of Reimagine India 2017, a cultural exchange programme celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Independence of India in 2017.

PunjabTronix features an exciting new creative collaboration between technology and tradition, as cutting edge live electronica and digital technologies combine with the traditional sounds of the Punjab.

Mixing live electronic dance music with Punjabi dhol drums, vocals, stringed instruments and the hypnotic sounding double flute algoza, the live show will feature the powerful distinct rhythms and traditional melodies of the Punjab interacting creatively with live electronic drum machines, synthesiser arpeggios and basslines.

Visual projections of original digital animations and cinematic Punjabi imagery, produced by Bristol based filmmaker John Minton, will complete a unique musical and visual event.

Artist Open Houses (AOH) helps artists connect with audiences in self-curated, non-traditional art spaces. This usually means visiting artists’ own homes, offering festival-goers an exclusive snapshot of how creatives live in this vibrant and creative city. From beautiful Regency-style properties to quirky and colourful cottages, many of the houses boast stunning gardens creatively landscaped by their owners.

AOH also offers the chance to buy artworks directly from the artists and makers themselves. There is a hugely diverse selection of artworks on show, from original paintings, prints, graffiti arts, ceramics and textiles to photography, sculpture, crafts, jewellery and many other media.

Judy Stevens, Festival Director, Artist Open Houses says: “Bullet PR has delivered great results for the Artists Open Houses. Pandora George’s proactive initiatives and creative thinking have made a real impact, bringing fresh ideas and a new media focus to the festival. Above all, Pandora is a real pleasure to work with.”
