Pulpy Shilpy

Gowri Jayakumar aka Pulpy Shilpy is a Goa-based producer and composer. After many years leading the “freak funk psycho punk” band Run Pussy Run, Gowri has delved into production and electronic music, recording and DJ-ing under the alias Pulpy Shilpy. More recently, she has participated in audio-visual collaborations, and leads a collective called Orbs Cure Labs, which provides unsigned and independent musicians a community and support structure — particularly in support of “left-field, local, underground, gutsy sounds and stories” — which Gowri aims to turn into a self-sustainable label and digital platform. In her words, “To be able to create a lab for creative exchange, innovation, and to empower revolutions through cutting edge art, drives me.”
