The World is Sound
Eclectic Electronica | Global Frequencies
comes from Nada Brahma which means sounds that transcendence.
Akaliko in Pali means “timelessness” and the phrase “The World is Sound” is derived from Sanskrit “Nada Brahma”.
Akaliko is the hub for everything electronic, experimental and existential in music from Dhaka and beyond to create a new sonic identity and the grassroots level sustainability for the surging megalopolis for everyone.
Akaliko’s core has always been to advocate the electronic music culture in Dhaka, Bangladesh and beyond.
Flashback | Dhaka Art Summit 2016
Quite often for us, electronic music acts as the medium that connects us to the many diversities of Bangladeshi music forms. It allows us to close our distances from Bangladesh’s historic narratives with a remarkable optimism for the sounds of our future, and thereby recognizes that neither the past nor the future are “as far they may have seemed”.
This selection of works acts as an example of the evolving sound of a developing megacity as such as Dhaka – a result of globalization, returning prosperity, re-imagined identities – birthed from digital machines in a crammed up geographic boundary.
Different sounds, promising ideas, uncanny influences and experiences somehow shape how we look back at our history and what we expect of our near future. Nothing is as far as it seems because everything is connected and in connected-ness we prevail.
These artists are represented by Akaliko Records and were discovered through Dhaka Electronica Scene.
