Giving the audience a surprise, Nasya, the famous Sufi rock band, made an appearance at The Hindustan Times CyberHub Friday Jam Season 3 presented by Honda, powered by G-Shock, in association with KR Mangalam University, and enthralled the audience.
The band performed a number of famous songs, including ‘sayonee’ and ‘har kisi ko’. The band, with their passion for music, took the audience on a musical joy ride. Even the weather was on their side, with a cool breeze and slight drizzle giving a respite from the summer heat. The crowd was on their feet and swayed to the music.
“It was a great day. We have performed at several stages but this event was a magical experience. There is a lot of talent around and the passion for music is incomparable. It is great that Hindustan Times has given this one of a kind opportunity for young bands to come forward,” Kunal Wason, the vocalist of Nasya, said.
Apart from Nasya, three upcoming bands from outside Delhi-NCR also captivated the audience with their performance. It is one of those instances which proved that the event is gaining popularity across the country.
Idabat, a four-member band from Chandigarh, performs different genres but specialises in Sufi rock music. The band has been performing together for the last seven years.
“It is a big opportunity to perform on the Friday Jam stage. It gives novice musicians like us an opportunity to reach out to the people. The response we got from the audience gives us a moral boost to continue performing and entertain music lovers,” Sukhpal, vocalist of the band, said.
Evol, a four-member-band from Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, is popular for their Indie rock. They played their own compositions besides popular Bollywood songs.
“We chose popular songs to the preference of the local crowd. We are glad that the songs got the audience approval and gave them a time to remember. It took us three years to come on a stage and we are glad,” Vivek, a band member, said.
All four members of Pysch, a band from Kota in Rajasthan, have an engineering background and their passion for music keeps them going. They played a selection of self-composed English songs that got the audience cantillating.
“We liked how audience appreciated our music too amongst all Bollywood numbers. The crowd and the weather are just perfect for an amazing evening,” Shantanu Pathak, a member of Pysch, said.
The music event has become the weekend getaway for many in Delhi-NCR.
“I am passionate about music. I come here every Friday with my family to watch this initiative to boost the confidence of amateur musicians,” Rohit Singh of Sushant Lok, said.
