Kini Rao

With rhythm in her soul, funk in her attitude, Kini has been steadily creating waves in the house music scene in India.
Starting off as resident DJ at Poison Hyderabad, Kini rose through the ranks to open for massive headline acts such as dOP, Dale Anderson & Anil Chawla (Global Underground), Djuma Soundsystem, James Harcourt (Twisted Frequency) and Jody Wisternoff (Way Out West). Her popularitycontinues to grow- performing at festivals such as GO: Madras as well as opening the party at India’s biggest electronic music event – Sunburn in Goa.
Her passion for a deeper sound was showcased on a regular basis at Zenzi Mills (Bombay). Her other notable gigs include an after hours set at Bar25 (Berlin), Villian’s Club & Oakroom (Copenhagen) & Public Life (London). She is currently a resident DJ and an artist programmer at F Bar Mumbai, a brand extension of international lifestyle channel Fashion TV.

Doing complete justice to her cheeky self, Kini’s sound can best be described as an ambivalent mélange of distorted kicks, crispy hats, funky basslines & quirky melodies.
With four releases already under her belt on respected labels such as Maktub and Whose Haus and more to come, Kini is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with.
