BISHI is an artist, composer and producer born in London of Bengali heritage. She has independently released three albums and several EPs to critical acclaim. Featuring revolutionary use of her trademark electric sitar and four-octave vocal range, her music focuses on subjects such as dual identities, anti-racism, feminine mythologies, and queer bodies.

BISHI is celebrated for the use of ground breaking technology in her live performances, from interactive bodysuits to live coded and mixed reality environments. Collaborations and commissions include: Tony Visconti, Sean Ono Lennon, Jarvis Cocker, The London Symphony Orchestra, Yoko Ono’s Meltdown and fashion designer Manish Arora. Alongside her compositions placed in both film and TV, BISHI’s first original score for film (VR), ‘Maya: The Birth of a Superhero’ premiered at Tribeca Film Festival (2023). In 2022, her first AV installation 'Reflektions,' became the first artist’s work to be project-mapped across UNESCO World Heritage sites, The Queen’s House & Royal Naval College, London.
