7 Indian Bands That Are Rewriting The Definition Of Music!

7 Indian Bands Making Music That Touches Soul!

In India music has always been an inseparable part of every region but it gets recognition mostly through Bollywood. Although Indian music does survive with regional artists but making big moolah out of it isn’t that easy for an individual, especially when the person or group is not performing for Bollywood. Well, not everyone could make it to the big screen but there are few who chose not to opt for that option why?

All we could say is because music for them is equivalent to worship. There are some bands in India who are making independent music and reaching millions of hearts. These bands have one thing in common. Their compositions are original and their music feels like a breath of fresh air in between all those lifted tunes.

We have a list of 7 Indian Bands that are of different genres, styles, and languages but one string that is common among all these is that they touch your soul through their compositions. Some of the bands are already very popular and some are paving their way to the top.

1. Parikrama

Parikrama is one of the oldest Indian bands, it’s been 25 years since they have started casting the soulful spell of music and they are still making it better. The electrifying band produces some of the most bewitching classic rock tunes.

2. Cassini’s Division

The band was one of the three finalists in Channel [V]’s LaunchPad, 2009. Cassini’s Division is all about funk rock blended with meaningful lyrics. The ban from Calcutta is one of the finest bands of India.

3. Inner Sanctum

The band was also made a place in Rock Street Journal’s Top 10 EP’s of The Decade (2010). Not only that they also opened for cult metal band Metallica in 2011.

4. Bhayanak Maut

The band is totally into some deep shit. The metal band from Mumbai is really popular in the metal circle of India and their album MAN which was released in 2014 is still considered as one of the most magnificent definitions of ” the result of destroying the last 10 years of our lives”, as I said some deep shit they are.

5. Agnee

Well, this band needs no introduction as they are ruling hearts of every authentic music lover. With a blend of classic rock along with Hindustani classical and Carnatic music, they produce some of the most soulful numbers ever.

6. A Mutual Question

The band was formed in 2013 and is a post-rock band by genre. A Mutual Question is from Pune and it already got people hooked on their music. Although they are post-rock but, they have also experimented with Indian classical vocals in Eyes Everywhere in 2013.

7. The Raghu Dixit Project

Well, this band is probably the most popular name in the indie music circle. The genre of the band is folk songs along with ballad. The band has won hearts in India as well as Indian listeners residing outside the country. Not only that they have also bewitched the Queen of England and the entire Royal family in England with their impeccable music.

Thank God! These musicians and bands exist because music should be diverse and even Bollywood can make us feel monotonous at times.
