I saw an absolutely phunfuckingtastic performance by this group called Sitar Funk - Niladri on sitar which was electrifyin, drums by Gino Banks, keyboards by Agnello Fernandes who gave music to Kabul Express, Tabla by Satyajit Talwalkar, Mridangam by bald dude, Vocals by some Anand dude who was v good and Bassist was Sheldon D'Silva who rocked ass!! Why the heck have I put all these names here is a good quashtun.
They played Bin Tere Sanam, Floyd, Doors and my lord....bootiful stuff.. Gino did this whole drum + crowd interaction thing! Great great stuff!!
Mr Kailash Kher rocked...but to me it was expected that he would rock! His English sucked! Lol..I am such a cow but well...wotver...Crowd went mad...I rem me gng to rock shows and showing the same frenzy that people showed yesterday..music is beautiful if made the right way and can make that connect with people!
The crowe went mad with Allah Ke Bandhe - people went wild..Harish was singing like with pura josh and mad just fabbb stuff!! Ambience sometimes makes this humongous difference and man was there an electrifying ambience yest! Boootiful and I enjoyed a lot of it!
