Cajita - Singer/Songwriter Live Act in London

Cajita Short Info

Cajita is Jay Chakravorty, a half-Indian, half-Irish/English, multi-instrumentalist songwriter and producer who makes ambient, orchestral folk music using instruments, his voice, analogue synths, and loop pedals. He then travels around the world, playing that music at people.
His music combines elements of ambient electronica, orchestral minimalism and acoustic songwriting, drawing comparisons with artists such as Sufjan Stevens, Efterklang, and King Creosote & Jon Hopkins.
When he plays live, Cajita uses three sequentially-linked loop pedals - a set-up which recently prompted the makers of the pedals, BOSS UK, to invite him to Metropolis Studios, London, to perform for them.
Cajita has received regular radio play from BBC 6 Music from the likes of Lauren Laverne, Tom Robinson and Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins). He has also been featured on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and recently played a live session for KCLAfm in Hollywood, California.
He has toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe, and has supported bands like Tina Dico, James Yuill, and Ulrich Schnauss, as well as playing on the same bills as Bjork, Thom Yorke, and Massive Attack.
He has recently performed at The Big Chill Festival (UK), The Electric Picnic (IE), Breminale (DE), and Fete De La Musique (FR/DE), all as an independent artist.
