India's ever-evolving When Chai Met Toast balances their folk-pop roots with forays into indie rock and alternative rock. The quartet officially came into being with their debut EP 'Joy of Little Things'. The collective made a swift rise following the release, with audiences taking to their unique style of songwriting drawing upon multilingual lyrics and infectious sing-along choruses, incorporating acoustic folk instruments like the banjo. Over the next year, they crafted what became the 2018 breakout 'Khoj (Passing By)' from their sophomore offering 'Believe', achieving both critical and public acclaim. They have continued to experiment with their sound, with their eclectic but accessible brand of pop music making them festival favourites in the country.
Founded in 2016, When Chai Met Toast consists of vocalist Ashwin Gopakumar, guitarist Achyuth Jaigopal, keyboard player Palee Francis and drummer Pai Sailesh, who met in the music circles of Kochi, Kerala.
The collective made a swift rise, and their energetic live performances endeared them to crowds internationally.
