Season 3 of Hindustan Times Cyberhub Friday Jam, presented by Honda, powered by G-Shock, in association with K R Mangalam University, will bring bands from across the country to the stage this Friday.
The free-for-all HT Friday Jam aims to provide a relaxed and fun-filled atmosphere to residents of Delhi-NCR. The bands performing this Friday — Evol, Psych, Ibadat — share a common belief that music is the best form of artistic expression.
This Friday promises a treat for lovers of Hindi rock, Sufi and Bollywood music.
Evol, a four-member band from Rajasthan, plays Indie and Bollywood music. The band is geared up to give a powerful performance. “Association with HT is always thrilling because they give so much opportunity for Indie bands like us. This platform will give us great exposure and help us reach a wider audience,” Vivek, a band member, said.
Psych, a four-member band from Madhya Pradesh, is a proponent of hard rock and alternative rock. The band was formed in June 2015.
“We are very happy to finally get a chance to perform on the HT Friday Jam stage. We have performed earlier at various events but this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Shantanu Pathak, a band member, said.
Ibadat, a band formed seven years ago, is renowned for its Sufi rock. “We generally sing so that audience can connect easily with us. Our practice for the event is in full swing. We are planning to perform a few old Sufi numbers as well as some of our compositions,” Sukhpal, a band member, said. The band is from Chandigarh.
The event, which started as an initiative to bring back music and melodies to Gurgaon, has now become a one-stop destination for many in the city.
“I regularly visit the Hindustan Times Friday Jam sessions. I enjoy the music and the ambience at the venue. I look forward to enjoy some quality music this Friday,” Shruti Saxena, who works as a teacher in Gurgaon, said.
“I love the magical moments that Hindustan Times creates at Cyber Hub. I took my parents and friends to the event last time and they also liked the ambience,” Komal Sharma, an IT employee, said.
So, loosen your tie and unbutton your sleeves at the DLF Cyber Hub in a celebration of music with HT at season 3 of Friday Jam.
