Arguably one of the most commercially successful and prolific indie band in India right now. Formed officially in 2007, Shaa’ir + Func, commonly known as S+F, have already garnered recognition as VH1’s top emerging artists of 2007, best independent artists of 2008 (VH1), nominations from the AVIMA foundation as Best Dance Act in South-East Asia, and recognition from the Jack Daniel Rock Awards for best vocals, producer and the album of the year among others.

In six years, whilst actively touring throughout India, the UK, Europe and the East Coast of the US, S+F wrote and released three commercially successful albums, New Day : The Love Album, Light Tribe and the recently released third record under critical acclaim entitled Mantis with Bluefrog Records. Their music includes a heavy dose of experimentation within the popular and cutting edge genres of dance/electronic and rock music, while retaining a world pop accessibility.

S+F can’t stop, won’t stop, and seem to be riding some sort of magic carpet that was created by the eastern winds specifically for them – This carpet has carried them to play at the Big Chill Festival UK, Glastonbury UK, Oya Festival Norway, C/O Pop Germany, On The River Fest UK, India Festival Amsterdam, Nokia Music Festival Dubai, MIDEM Music Conference France, Chill Out Festival Dubai and more crazy parties across the Indian Sub-Continent. Ambassador’s for what they call The New India, S+F’s music is as explosive and flavorsome as India’s cuisine itself; a suitable metaphor for the versatility of these punk, guru-esque, elctro-folk, soul-funk, down and up-beat musicians of the world.
