Get set for fusion beats
Formed two years ago, Trizya, a six-piece fusion band, is making its mark on the city’s music scene. Darshan Singh Sur, the violinist, talks to us about the band’s music and what makes it click.
What sort of music can we expect from the band?
We play a mix of Indian classical, rock, pop, jazz, sufi and folk music. We have even done a jugal-bandi of violin and guitar.
How did the band come together?
The band was formed by me and it was an easy task as all of us have the passion to do something in the world of music.
Why this name?
Trizya is a mathematical word for the radius. Since all the members belong to different parts of Delhi and met together at a common point, hence the name.
What do you think people remember most about your gigs?
The unique combination of percussions and western musical instruments.
What do you think of the music scene in Delhi? Has it changed over the years?
The city’s music scene has totally changed. People have started to appreciate live acts more than before.
Any song, event or artist that your band draws inspiration from?
Compositions by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan sahab and the Delhi Jazz Festival have inspired us.
Do you guys enjoy performing in Delhi? Why?
Saddi Dilli has a huge audience that appreciates music. That’s why we love to perform here.
Which place in the city is best to make music?
Wherever the connection between the listener and music can be made.
What has been the best moment for the band?
When we took the stage at Royal Albert Hall in London.
