Friday Jam is back with more power and music.
The city will sway to the tunes of a diverse range of music with KR Mangalam University presenting Hindustan Times-DLF CyberHub Friday Jam Season 4, on Friday.
Over the last three years, HT Friday Jam was much appreciated by residents and the event this year will focus mostly on bringing out monsoon surprises for the audience as they unwind with friends and family over the weekend.
This Friday, three corporate bands — Swarrveda, Delhi Indie Project and The Banned (featuring Deepster and Sultan) — will kick off the Season 4 musical journey.
The much-awaited event of the year will once again make the city’s residents sway to melodious tunes. Music aficionados can enjoy different genres of music and the event will have something for everyone.
The event got a huge response as it was not only a platform for residents to enjoy music but also a stage for budding corporate musicians to follow their dreams.
Residents are excited to witness the magic of music again in a city known more for the cacophony on its congested roads. “I have attended all seasons of Friday Jam and am excited about Season 4. My friends and I always look forward to Fridays to enjoy good quality music,” said Naina Singh, a resident of Ardee City.
Apart from residents, participants too are very excited to perform in the event. The first band of the season is Delhi Indie Project, formed three years ago with six members — Ashish Chauhan (vocals and guitar), Jasmine Kaur (vocals), Mayank Bhatnagar (bass), Varun Rajput (electrical guitar), Shashank Signania (flute) and Vikrant Puri (keyboard).
“We are looking forward to perform as we know the audience will be an energetic one,” Chauhan said.
The second band is called ‘Swarrveda’. It has five members and was formed in 2011. The band will play folk, Sufi and Bollywood music.
This alternative fusion rock band from Uttarakhand has Sumit Sharma (vocalist), Himanshu Jaisingh (drummer), Manuj Narwal (keyboard player), Shravan Kumar (guitarist) and Rahul Ram (percussionist).
“This is the first time that we will be performing at Friday Jam. We have performed in Delhi and Gurgaon on several occasions,” Sharma said.
The third band, The Banned (featuring Deepster and Sultan), was formed four years ago and mostly plays classical and fusion music. The band has two members — DJ/sound designer Deep Anshu Anand aka Deepster and violist Mohammed Masood aka Sultan.
“We try to be creative by using classical instruments for fusion music,” Deepster said.
