Avial is an Indian alternative rock band which was formed in Trivandrum, Kerala, India in 2003. The band is named after the South Indian dish avial. The band consists of Tony John (vocals), Rex Vijayan (guitar), Mithun Puthanveetil (drums), and Binny Isaac (bass). The band's music is a fusion of native folk music from Kerala and alternative rock. They focus on rock performances only in the Malayalam language.
Avial did live shows in cities across India as well as some internationally. They performed at the Sakifo (Reunion) World Music Festival held in Mauritius that brought together 40 rock bands from across the world.
