In a refreshing change from the scores of bands looking to make a mark on the rock or pop scene, here’s a band of girls that swears by traditional Indian music.
Aged between 15 to 19 years, the six girls — Sukriti Handa, Kamakshi Khanna, sisters Tuhina and Mahima Kapoor and Ritwika and Ruchika Verma — will begin their musical saga with a concert, Aarambh, tonight.
While neither of them has had formal training in music, two are members of the Global Peace Choir and Artist Unlimited, and the rest are active members of their school and college cultural societies.
Their agenda tonight, as Kamakshi Khanna says, is to “romance people’s soul through a musical interactive session, in which they will perform, a few ghazals, bhajans, sufi numbers, film songs and a few classical ragas.”
The concert takes place today, 7 pm onwards, at Amaltas Hall, India Habitat Centre; Tel: 9810049402
