The genesis for the Melbourne-based trio, which formed around founding member Rajan Silva, was
through the rekindling of childhood memories relating to his father, who emigrated to Melbourne from
India in the late 1970's. Silva recalled watching a DVD with his father; ‘Concert for George’, a star
-studded tribute to late Beatles member George Harrison, featuring legendary Indian sitar player Ravi
Shankar with daughter Anoushka, alongside Western icons Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney and ELO’s
Jeff Lynne. This intersection of musical styles was reflected in the record collection of Silva's father.
In particular, Silva was drawn to the fusion of Western musical styles and traditional Indian music; a
concept pioneered by Indian artists like R.D. Burman, Ananda Shankar, and fraternal duo Kalyanji-Anandji.

This cross-pollination of East and West, of old and new, is a sentiment that the band have sought to
capture in their self produced works. Across their output, Glass Beams presents a timeless fusion of
cultures and sounds beamed through a prism of live instrumentation and DIY electronica, all wrapped
up inside a mesmerizing and mystical visual world of their own making.
