PUMA Run The Streets
PUMA #RunTheStreets is taking over and conquering the streets across the globe with an aim to drive real conversations around street culture, creativity and artistic expression. As part of this global campaign, they’ve pit stopped at one of the creative capitals of Asia- Bombay.

The Run the Streets Sessions started with an intention to discover and facilitate emerging talents and give them a platform for them to do what they do best.

Azuma Kazuma
Almost a year in the making, Azuma Kazuma is a narrative album set in colonized outer space. It follows the journey of FT 1089, a low ranking employee of a corporate oligarchy who one day confronts his mortality and decides to embark on a homeward journey across the galaxy. The story is aurally told through a diverse set of musical styles and sound design inspired by astronomy and science fiction, while an elaborate set of motion graphics designed by Johnny Ganta further accentuate the narrative.

Sid Vashi
Sid Vashi is an electronic musician and composer from Mumbai India. Vashi’s music is often characterized by the use of field recordings and organic textures coupled with samples from Bollywood and Indian classical recordings from the past. In 2013, he released his first EP entitled ‘Motherland Tourism’ which received praise from noted online platforms including THUMP by Vice and The Wild City. Sid Vashi grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, where he began recording music at the age of 14. Having grown up with an outsider’s appreciation of commercial Indian music and an early education in Jazz, Vashi began incorporating a wide array of influences into his music. In 2015, he began playing live in the Indian independent circuit, performing at major festivals including Magnetic Fields and NH7 Weekender and most major venues in the country.
