Rain in Sahara is a conscious fusion and activist band. Tucked away in the Indian corner near the Himalayas bordering Bhutan and China, Rain in Sahara was born in the sweltering Indian heat of late 2016 in Guwahati, Assam. Although started as an experimental hip-hop project, Rain in Sahara morphed into a live act in 2018 and has performed in India and internationally supporting acts such as Yassin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def). Driven by a desire to spread positive conscious music with a message along the principles of social justice, equality, freedom and respect, Spanish-American producer and multi-instrumentalist Lain joined forces with vocalist/guitarist Rain, drummer Rui, bassist Rajat and guitarist/vocalist Pawan to develop the fusion outfit Rain in Sahara.

Fusing a wide range of elements and instrumentation into their sound from numerous genres such as hip-hop, electronica, rock, Latin music, and even Indian and western classical music, Rain in Sahara bring their individual struggles and experiences to their music writing about what they see in their daily lives.

For Rain in Sahara, music is the platform for engaging audiences and especially the youth on the most pressing challenges of our time. We focus a lot on combating climate change and fighting corruption and income inequality in our music; but it is the combination of music, visuals and our conscious messaging that makes our performances musical demonstrations. We are trying to work at the nexus of music, activism and technology to engage audiences and ideally inspire them to take action together on the most pressing challenges of our time. We need your help to be able to focus fully on our creative craft and to catalyze change and action through our conscious music videos and performances.

Our operation is currently fully DIY (and yes some of us in the group are certainly inspired by this DIY ethic from punk rock music)!

Everyone in the group has multiple duties to juggle: our video editing is done by our drummer, our keyboard/vocalist does our mixing and mastering, our bassist handles our live visuals, everyone is handling management and booking duties so if we can afford to hire a manager we can focus more on creating quality conscious music!
