Kassa Overall • drums
Arooj Aftab • vocals, guitar

Named for the ubiquitous soda sold on street corners throughout India, Thums Up is an exploratory and groove-heavy mix of acoustic instruments and electronics that features Iyer alongside Punjabi-American rapper Himanshu Suri (formerly of Das Racist), guitarist Rafiq Bhatia (Son Lux, Lorde), drummer Kassa Overall (Geri Allen, Henry Threadgill), and Pakistani vocalist and composer Arooj Aftab. JazzTimes called them “a powerful expression of the hyphenated-American identity.” They make their West Coast debut with this performance.
