Rup Sidhu is an interdisciplinary artist, musician, producer and composer. Specializing in vocal percussion and live looping, his sound blends the rhythms of poetry and spoken word with a dynamic range of cultural hybridity. Inspired by folk and classical forms of music from around the world, his musical expressions range from groove oriented hip hop beats, to contemporary fusions of classical ragas; scores for the National Film Board of Canada and remixes of vintage bollywood tunes, to experimental compositions for dance and theatre productions. Rup has facilitated and taught musical programs in universities, public schools, youth prisons, and communities throughout Canada, USA, UK, and India. Rup has produced fourteen albums with emerging artists, including American Pie, Shane Koyzan’s debut release. Current collaborative projects include: Aluma Sound, Blue God and the Serpents, Jhalaak, Ruby Singh and Metaphor. Rup’s solo live looping show, RupLoops, has toured over 300 locations across Canada.
