JAN 26 | NAANE DAARI (DUALIST INQUIRY MIX) STARTS STREAMING WORLDWIDE
Naane Daari is a song for the times and one that we enjoy playing to audiences for the sheer energy of Kannada disco funk meeting edgy electro dubstep. Released first on YouTube in 2014, this song from our second studio album Topiwalleh translates to “I am my Way” – it is about youth and a hopeful optimism that leads change, and the path to a better world.
It took us a while to bring it to you. Naane Daari is now available across all streaming platforms!
MAKING MUSIC FOR CHANGE
We are glad to give our music to causes that matter to us. On Jan 26, 2021 we performed a massive gig, first of the year, for Network18's #MissionPani Waterthon celebrating India's water warriors and raising awareness for conservation. We have leaned into The Minor Project - a public engagement initiative to help end violence against children. We are engaging with a differently-enabled audience with out work being showcased in White Print Mag, India's first lifestyle magazine in Braille.
In December, we stood in solidarity with the citizens of Goa to lend our voice to the cause of sustainable development as we protect our environment and ecosystems. Read more on our blog.

SWARATHMA DIGITAL CONCERT EXPERIENCE
Our music thrives through the live-concerts we perform in public-spaces. It has been a difficult year of social-distancing and cancelled shows. We are counting down the days and have missed you – our live audience! But, the pandemic is not behind us yet. For now, our shows will be capped-ticketed events with all necessary precautions.
Living through these toughest of years, our belief in the power of music in bringing communities together has only grown stronger. We are doing out bit to bring you some musical joy in these trying times across multiple platforms and streaming services on social media. We have shared our quarantine thoughts, played music from our homes and re-imagined songs that are our old favourites even as we make new music. We are partnering with our friends and committed organizations to lend ourselves and our music for several fund-raising efforts to support artists and relevant causes.
We hope to play for you more - our live audience, as we win the battle with COVID19. Meanwhile, we are re-imagining the digital concert experience. The Red Music Box studio with it's twin-camera and professional audio set up is our perfect online gig spot.
Our digital concerts are live-streamed to audiences, we recreate the vibes of alive show by interacting through chat and keeping our on-stage humor crackling!
