about

Avi And The Uprising Brisbane, Australia

With a bass baritone of rare tonal gravity that switches between opera, blues and Hindustani classical, world folk arrangements and a literary aptitude for capturing stories and reflections that belong equally to the East and West, the old and the new. Avi is fashioning a brave new post colonial ethno – contemporary folk aesthetic that refuses to be stereotyped. ... more

Track Name: Rebirth
I have been to other lifetimes
Though the scenes I cannot trace

Old pianos, walks in gardens
Don’t know you but I know your face


I have walked these street before but
Cities come and cities burn

The palace shone in diamond splendour
Your four words were death defined


I have scripted all these scenes where I’m
The seer and the seen

Do you see your lives flash by as
Seconds bloom and seconds burn
Track Name: Climate Change Man
It’s a Tuesday afternoon he’s deep within the moon
Eyes lit up in silent rage
Lost in his cocoon cutouts in his room
Making speeches on the eve of doom.


Screeching tales of glacial thirst
Of river whales that die in the mud
Of pesticides and stratospheres


Climate change change man
What a strange strange man.
Climate change change man
What a strange strange man.


Between the lama and the whore
The drama and the lore
He shadows on a rural street

Chasing a skylark
The sun’s getting dark
Cause the whole world’s burning down

Screeching tales of glacial thirst
Of river whales that die in the mud
Of pesticides and stratospheres


Climate change change man
What a strange strange man.
Climate change climate change,
Climate change, climate change man.



Says life’s like a store where people just want more of what has bought them to begin with…
Track Name: Love
My baby she don’t really watch television
The show she loves to see is life
My baby she don’t ever shop on a Sunday
Knows the beautiful is free

She gives me love, love, sweet love
She gives me love, love, sweet love

My baby she don’t really understand them brandings
Knows that everything is one
My baby’s grooving to the cricket orchestra
Loves designs in the sky

She gives me love, love, sweet love
She gives me love, love, sweet love

My baby she don’t think that saying is believing
Don’t understand them lies
My baby loves the blood of justice
Knows two wrongs don’t make a right

She gives me love, love, sweet love
She gives me love, love, sweet love



The sky is love
Why is love
I’m love
You are love

Love, love, love, Sweet love
Track Name: Wahe Guru
Sometimes there are no roads
Some roads just have no time
Some rhymes are understood
Some lines they circle back

Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru

Dravid hits a six
Dhoni rolls his arm
Sachin loses calm
Bradman faces Warne


Wahe Guru Wahe Guru.

You love so much you hate
You run so much you’re still
You hurt so much you laugh
You laugh so much you cry


Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru


Some die to show us life

Some gods may be unkind

Some burn in rhythmic fire

Some beats they'll always breathe


Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru



You love so much you hate

You run so much you're still

You laugh so much you cry

You cry so much you laugh.


Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru
Track Name: Booom Boom Shiva
Shiva’s such a lonesome guy
With his house up in the sky

Shiva loves to dress in black
Ash clad with matted hair

Shiva does the yoga too
His apartment’s coloured blue


Boom Boom Shiva bring me down
Boom Boom Shiva bring me down


Shiva plays a drum solo
Dances frantic breaths real slow

Shiva loves to get real high
Soma helps to make him fly

Shiva loves to run so fast
He’s got no future he got no past


Boom Boom Shiva bring me down
Track Name: Who?
Who says that a piece of pa per, gets me what I want?

Who says that a barbed wire fence, tells me what I’m not?

Who says that the seen, heard, spoken is everything there is?


It aint me
It aint you


Who says that some are born to riches, others to rags?

Who says that this profit motive aint just a load of gas?

Who says that we can’t grow food for everyone to eat?


It aint me
It aint you


Who says what is one and hundred, who says what is none?

Who says that a circle aint just a square on the run?

Who says that all that’s added isn’t just subtracted?

It aint me
It aint you


Is it an eye in the sky?
Is it a lullaby?
Is it an open field?
Is it a stock exchange?
Is it an ancient book?

It aint me
Track Name: Tamasic Electric Tools
Men use
Women consume
Mist in the dune
Dance to my tunes

Might don’t do
Might can’t be cool
Blood without drool
Light is fuel


Tamasic electric tools

Flow with the tide,
Don’t erase light
Spacious flight tide
Room without sight


Lying on lies
Sighing in signs
Middle of lines
You’re gonna be fine

Tamasic electric tools

Plastic can flow
It don’t glow
Gold is sown
And the reaper was morose, Joe

Lying on lies
Sighing in signs
Middle of lines
You’re gonna be fine

Tamasic electric tools
Track Name: Eyes On The Radio
Every bodies looking for my eyes on the radio
See the tide rise as the moon starts to flow
I have always known that the telepathy starts to grow
Do you see me whisper all the sights that you’ve never known



Every bodies looking for my eyes on the radio
See the golden dawn as the canvas of night unfolds
The lake in the mirror of a sign in a Mughal fort
Glows as the moonlit mystic maiden, she sings alone



Every bodies looking for my eyes on the radio
See the golden dawn as the canvas of light unfolds

The moon was a ship of conversations .
Emerald green and silken wondrous flow.
And we sail on the river.
And we sail
And we sail on the river of bliss…
