The Atmospheres are singer/songwriters Alok Atmo (acoustic guitar, tanpuri) and Anando Bharti (bass, dilruba), with master drummer Peter Leighton and electric guitar maestro John Sweeting. Atmo and Bharti have been writing songs, recording, performing and traveling the world together since 2001, playing with many wonderful musicians and soaking up myriad influences along the way. They both lived in India for many years (where Bharti studied Indian classical music) and while their music is Western in form, it is permeated with the mystical vibrations of the East, incorporating Indian instruments such as dilruba, tabla, sitar and bansuri alongside acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, didgeridoo and Afro-Latin percussive joy, The Atmospheres weave a unique and colorful sound - celebratory folk rock with world dance grooves and a juicy spiritual edge. Sensuous vocals, poetry for the heart and uplifting arrangements bring a sense of harmony and joy to the listener.

The Atmospheres live in the subtropical melting-pot of Byron Bay, a multi-cultural wonderland on the east coast of Australia, world-famous for its fabulous surfing beaches, rainforest retreats, laidback lifestyle and peace-loving inhabitants. It is also an amazing hotbed of creativity. Everyone is a musician, or a painter, writer, dancer, film-maker, healer, globetrotting personality, guru, or all of the above, often simultaneously. The Atmospheres fit this stereotype perfectly, and their songs reflect their surroundings.
