Indian Ocean performs live
Indian Ocean, a contemporary fusion music band from Delhi, to perform live tonight at Blue Frog.Updated: May 12, 2010 20:30 IST
Indian Ocean is a contemporary fusion music band from Delhi, India. Some music critics describe its music as “Indo-rock fusion with jazz-spiced rhythms that integrates shlokas, sufism, environmentalism, mythology and revolution”.
The band consists of Susmit Sen on guitar, Amit Kilam on percussion, and Rahul Ram on bass guitar and vocals. Sen has virtually invented a new style of playing the guitar, an uncannily Indian sound where purity of scale reigns and strong melodic lines are woven around the drone of open strings.
Kilam’s drumming is a balance between the conventional and non-conventional. Ram’s bass-playing moves smoothly – from melodic enmeshing with vocal and guitar lines to the more standard laying of foundations over which the band soars.
Catch Indian Ocean live, tonight at Blue Frog, Mathuradas Mills Compound, Tulsi Pipe Road, Lower Parel, at 9.30 pm.
Entry fee: Rs 300, from 6 pm onwards.
