Bengaluru: Sixteen musicians sharing one particular phase belting out melodies of Indian ragas, effective guitar solos and the haunting melodies of a violin, all at the exact same time…If that does not give one particular the perception of a electricity packed dwell live performance, what does?
Thaikkudam Bridge, a Kochi dependent band blew Bengalureans absent with their fusion arrangements on Saturday evening.
Generally like minded people meet up with and they conclude up making something much larger than by themselves. Thaikumdam Bridge has a very similar story.
“It is virtually a sequence of co-incidences. Govind and Sid have been hunting for musicians to perform for a tv broadcast back in 2013 and right after we jammed, we grew to become inseparable,” stated Ashok Nelson, the rhythm guitarist of the band, through the seem test at Indiranagar Club hours just before the gig.
Siddharth and Govind are brothers and the initial two members of the band. Thaikkudam is the name of a position in their hometown and as they would jam close to the bridge, they determined the name was greatest suited for them. Most bands evolve from one particular genre to a different as they mature more mature, but not this one particular. Why? Mainly because they never trapped to the genre match in the initial position. “We never considered we would perform one particular detail. With 16 people on board, it is a minimal tricky to do,” suggests Govind Menon, vocalist, violinist and one particular of the founding members of the band, laughing and hunting at his band mates.
Right after the important applause and immense supporter subsequent that their initial album, Navarasam gained, the band is all set to launch their following album Namah this September.
