From October 25 to November 27, the participants will take part in studio sessions, workshops and lectures with legendary artists at the Academy during their respective 2-week terms. At night, each participant will join the lineup at one of the many events that will take place at la Gaîté lyrique and throughout the city as part of the Red Bull Music Academy.

One of India’s emerging, immensely talented electronic music producers – The Sine Painter, aka Jayanth R, from Bangalore has been selected for the Red Bull Music Academy this year. With his floating and dreamy deep house, this Bangalorean producer Jayanth Ramachandra is inspired by the likes of Levon Vincent, British house don Matthew Herbert, and German mainstay Roman Flügel. His rolling, elastic rhythms and warm grooves play into his philosophy of striving to balance entertainment with art.
“I’ve been following RBMA for quite some time. It was one of my inspirations to start making music — I watch and listen to all the lecture videos and radio shows,” Jayanth says, adding, “So, I’m extremely honoured to be selected for RBMA 2015. I’m looking forward to working with other incredible musicians and making some great music.”
Drummer and music producer Jivraj Singh, mohan-veena player Jeet Gupta and music producer Sonal D’Silva have represented India at the academy previously. This year Angaraag Mahanta, aka Papon will also be present at the Red Bull Music Academy as a special guest.
