Baby Guru is an ever-evolving musical organism conceived by three childhood friends, in a basement, at the end of 2009. Tired of the typical rock band thing, they lay emphasis on spontaneity and unexpected inspiration, while they cultivate an obsession with the kraut rock legacy, psychedelic music and mama Africa percussion experiments. They remain incurably charmed by the analog warmth of proto electronica and the raw power of garage punk while they demonstrate a driving perspective of instinctive grooves and vocal lines that range from meditative to Dadaistic.
They’ve spent 2010 performing live shows in Athens and giving “Yogi Sister” EPs (vol.1 & 2) – a series of primitive recordings- for free download. In 2011, they made a dynamic comeback with their debut album, “Baby Guru”, which was released on March 8th from Inner Ear. They also wrote the soundtrack for the theatrical play “Why I Killed My Best Friend”, directed by Vasia Attarian. Their sophomore album, “Pieces”, is scheduled for release in October 2012.
