Lil Idli is the experimental pop duo of vocalist Ranjani Prabhakar and producer/percussionist Deepak Gopinath. Their compelling and soulful style seamlessly weaves together a unified sound reflecting their hybrid cultural roots and artistic identities. Combining Prabhakar’s insightful lyricism and radiant vocals with Gopinath’s knack for exploratory and textural soundscapes, the colorfully expressive vibes of Lil Idli gently ask us: why are we here and what do we owe one another?
Loaded with layered synth melodies & mesmerizing vocals, Lil Idli’s debut song “Little Girl” displayed their multi-faceted sound and artistry, taking influences in minimalism, classic R&B, and neo-soul. Lil Idli continues to delve into the art of making music from every angle as they refine the material for their upcoming album, Mitochondria, scheduled to be released in late 2021. Mitochondria explores our awakening human consciousness amidst ecological turmoil and generational shifts. Thought-provoking, insightfully artistic, and resoundingly real at a time where the world needs it most – Lil Idli creates a radiant array of music for the mind, played with undeniable heart.
