The members of Elephants With Guns met while living in Downtown Los Angeles, though many of its members hail from across the globe. Using their different cultural backgrounds as inspiration, the band is known for fusing Indian and Arabic melodies with Latin beats and hard rock progressions. Their unique sound has earned them a following as well as featured performances at the Indian Film Festival in Los Angeles and the South Asian Indian Film Festival in New York. Currently, they are performing in the Los Angeles area while working on their debut album.
