KAVUS TORABI needs little introduction –  not least because we have already announced that he will be performing a very special commissioned project at Roadburn this year. But alongside that exclusive performance (titled Lion of the Lord’s Elect) we have secured a solo performance from the man himself to bookend the Saturday of Roadburn. We like to keep him busy… 

When he’s not creating for specially commissioned projects, Kavus is prolific in a million other ways. Cardiacs, Gong, Knifeworld, The Utopia Strong and so many more have been blessed with the fruits of his endeavours. But he also creates music under his own name, and his second album, The Banishing, will be released this Spring. Armed with just a guitar, a harmonium and his wonderful voice, Kavus will introduce us to more of his adventures through psychedelia. 

If you like your psych to be sprinkled with iridescent beauty, and infused with mind-warping melody, then Kavus has just what you’re after.
