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!

NOV-JAN  |  KHUL JA RE & RISHTON KA RAASTA REFRESHED WITH BRAND NEW LYRIC VIDEOS

As the festive season set in, we released this joyful new lyric-video for Khul Ja Re - a magic-spell in the form of a song! Set to breathtaking visuals of nature, this takes us on journeys on wide open roads.

Rishton ka Raasta lyric video released to kick off the new year with a fresh bunch of hope! The abundant green of rural Assam is the prefect backdrop to the soaring melody of our song.  

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.

Here is something HUUGE. A dream collaboration unfolded - Apple, the much-admired brand, launched their online store in India and selected the opening bars of Khul Ja Re, as the soundtrack to their promo-video. Our unique, pulsating, playful rhythm celebrates this milestone in Apple's 20-year journey in India.

LIVE IN FEB: OUR SHOWS IN A PRE-COVID WORLD 

At Indiranagar Habba in our homecity, we performed under a lovely tree on a bigger and radically new stage.

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! 

It's time to re-imagine the (indie)-rock concert: Watch Raah E Fakira Live! from The Red Music Box Studio

Even as the pandemic kept us home-bound, we kept supporting the causes that matter so much to us through our music. Raising awareness about India's looming water crisis, participating in a public dialogue on making childhood safer or singing to protest mass deforestation, continue to do our bit. We hope that you join in too and be a part of our tribe.
