Bishi joins Polly Shute for an exclusive interview in our Facebook community


DIVA has launched a series of DIVA Community exclusive and live Zoom chats with some of our lovely friends and supporters called #TheRileyInterviews. 

This Wednesday (9 December) at 8pm as part of the series, Polly Shute will be hosting a guest spot where she will get to chat with the musician Bishi via Zoom. 

Bishi is a singer, electronic rock-sitarist, composer, producer, and performer born in London of Bengali heritage. A talented mule-instrumentalist, she has been trained in both Hindustani and Western Classical styles, studying the sitar under Gaurav Mazumdar, a senior disciple of Ravi Shankar, and voice training on retreat with Meredith Monk, a titan of the New York avant-garde.

Bishi is celebrated for the use of ground breaking technology in her performances, from interactive bodysuits, controlling sound and vision live on stage to live coded audiovisual environments. Tune in tonight for what’s set to be an interesting insight into Bishi’s life and music. 

Launched as a way of bringing the lez/bi community closer together with everything that’s happening in the world right now, the Facebook-based, digital hangout DIVA Community has grown to a membership of 8,000 women and allies, hailing from all around the globe. Pretty impressive, eh?
