Parvaaz, one of the most popular Bangalore-based rock bands featuring Khalid Ahamed (lead vocals, guitars) / Kashif Iqbal (lead guitar, vocals) / Fidel DSouza (bass) / Sachin Banandur (drums & percussion) makes music inspired by a beautiful combination of their roots from the misty mountains of Kashmir to the sun drenched fields of Karnataka.
Parvaaz’s music has been described as a mix of blues and rock, with a hint of psychedelia like a blend of nostalgia, history and their contemporary urban life. These young musicians, proud of their Kashmiri heritage, write songs that speak of their personal experiences and they explore traditional literature through Kashmiri and Urdu poetry. Some of their songs tell stories as handed down by generations through Kashmiri Folklore. Their ideas are expressed through Kashmiri and Urdu lyrics.
Parvaazs music can been described as a tasteful blend of blues, elements of rock and the experience of psychedelia through Kashmiri and Urdu lyrics.
Parvaaz is about to release a full length album Baran, consisting of 8 songs. It’s going to be a culmination of their live work over the past one year and will also include collaborations with new artists. Baran, which means rain in Persian, will be a soul-searching music album to say the very least. The songs on Baran talk of society’s unending materialistic quests and greed.
As part of production for the album, Parvaaz completed a successful crowd funding campaign through Wishberry.in. The contributors have a lot of goodies lined up for them once the album is out. Parvaazs main goal behind this venture was to connect better with the fans.
Catch Parvaaz live at Vapour on August 7th 2014 for a magical evening!
