Starting out in 2008, Faridkot has been a regular act on Delhi stages and beyond. Riding early on the wave of sufi music influx that is still flowing in they have carved out a cult following for themselves in the North. Faridkot’s music is a mixture of shifting blues guitars and harmonic love melodies blended around a thumping percussion and bass. Described in certain circles as Confused Pop.

IP Singh provides the voice and the words of Faridkot, with Akshat harmonizing the sound on keyboards. Backing the Hindi poetry is Rajarshi Sanyal on electric guitar, Nikhil Rufus Raj on bass and Sahil Mendiratta on percussion.

Agam is a multiple award winning contemporary carnatic rock act from bangalore, india. Agam derives its name from the ancient tamil word which translates to ‘the inner self’. Agam’s music encapsulates the boundless, vibrant emotions of the human psyche. It explores, depicts and contemplates these countless aspirations and sentiments of the inner self. Their music combines the myriad hues of melodic scales and intricate rhythm structures offered by carnatic music with the aesthetic principles and tonal elegance from western world.
