Whirling Kalapas is an acoustic-based trio created by Indus Creed’s Uday Benegal and Mahesh Tinaikar along with multi-instrumentalist Sankarshan Kini. The trio’s music can be described variously as neo-folk, alt-country, mellow and often funky acoustic rock. The band’s vocally and instrumentally lush sound has been garnering much praise from audiences across the country, including at their headlining performance at Lou Majaw’s Bob Dylan festival in Shillong and at Sulafest .

Whirling Kalapas was born when Uday regrouped with Mahesh on his return to India in 2009 from the US. To complete their eclectic acoustic sound, they recruited Sankarshan Kini, a veteran sessions musician who has toured the world with acts like Kailasa and Adil & Vasundhara. The trio are a rich addition to India’s current wave of alternative music forms, especially for audiences looking beyond the volume-driven sounds of rock and electronic music populating the indie scene. This is cerebral yet accessible music for the thinking listener.
