Vajra�s Debut Performance

A few months ago you may remember us telling you about this awesome band from NYC called Vajra. They had sent us their first single and we loved it. It felt like we had taken a trip to India with Trent Reznor � without the expensive price of airfare and hotels. Lucky us, right? Well if you were good little boys and girls, you took a listen as well. There�s no need to ask if you liked it � of course you did, why wouldn�t you? Which is why we are excited to give you details on their debut performance.

November 2, 2011 (New York, New York) Vajra brings their thunderous music and multimedia performance toThe Bowery Electric on November 10 at 11pm. In keeping with Vajra�s tenebrous, mystical music, Vajra will lead their audience to the mysterious 11-11-11, and the show is one you won�t want to miss.

The band will perform songs from their debut album �Pleroma�, a haunting exploration of paradox, written during Annamaria Pinna�s self-imposed exile in India. Annamaria�s powerful vocals are highlighted by Blake Fleming (The Mars Volta) on drums, Doug Wright (The Dirty Pearls) on bass, and Will Dahl (Harley�s War) on guitar.

Vajra�s music is hauntingly dark and hypnotic weaving Eastern Indian themes with melodic, progressive rock creating foreboding and mysterious lullabies. Sylvia Massy (Tool, System of A Down, Prince, Johnny Cash) co-produced the vocals and mixed. Tom Baker (NIN, Foo Fighters, Ministry, Prince) mastered.

The band is quickly generating a buzz after releasing their first single �Inside The Flame�. Virgin America just accepted Vajra�s yet unreleased single �Erode The Will� to be featured on their In-Flight Entertainment for December 2011.

�Vajra was formed by composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist, Annamaria Pinna �[while living] in India, and you can indeed hear an exotic influence in her songs, which though carry a very western tension and darkness. Overall her uptempo music could be described like an alt-rock version of Dead Can Dance. We are sure there is a numerous group of teenagers somewhere in the US suburbs who can fall in love with this lady and her tenebrous music.�
