WhatnDone and Drumroll Please Present: Roots & Grooves Tour with 2 of India's top bands - Daira and Gauley Bhai.
About Roots & Grooves Tour:
This tour will be a musical showcase of two prominent bands who embrace their cultural roots and are known for making the audience groove to their music.
A Hindi Art-Rock band from Mumbai that fuses alternative rock with a Desi sense of humour. Embracing their routes in India's Hindi heartland, Daira pioneered 'Awadhi Rock' into the scene - a unique brand of contemporary rock sounds delivered in Hindi and Urdu. The 5-piece band is most notable for it's striking stage persona and an energetic live set. Daira has 3 full-length studio albums and 3 singles to their credit, and are releasing their newest single on 30/3/23.
('the boy from back home/of the neighbourhood' in Nepali, lit. 'younger brother from the village') is a transtraditional rock band, based in Bangalore and Kalimpong. In 2017, a group of friends met in a jam room in Bangalore - Siddhant, Veecheet and Anudwatt from Kalimpong (Gorkhaland - nepali-speaking north-east India) & Joe from Calicut (Kerala). They began creating music that reflected their journeys of migration. The music drew from sounds of their childhood, growing up in small towns, and the fractures of life in a city.
