Season 2 of AMV podcast with Lifafa. In 2013, Suryakant started recording jazz music for Peter Cat Recording Co., a New Delhi hemp jazz outfit. It is one of the most unique and experimental bands to emerge from India. A few years back, Suryakant started his solo electronic project called Lifafa.
Lifafa carries a unique sound and aesthetics. It flows smoothly between various genres such as jazz, retro Bollywood, lo-fi, soul, and RnB funk. NME, in their review, perfectly describes his style, "The chill, textured music invokes feelings of long-lost lovers, of fleeting moments of sadness."
