How Did The Band Take Shape?

Mandate - - Music -

Venky: I am orig­i­nally from Ben­galuru, but I have grown up in the mid­dle- east. That’s where I met Sanam and Sa­mar and we formed our first band in Mus­cat.

Sanam: Sa­mar and I are broth­ers, but I was born in Delhi and Sa­mar in Mus­cat. So, you’ll have to keep guess­ing who’s the el­der one! (Laughs)

Sa­mar: (Cuts in) We did our school­ing in Mus­cat. Then, we came back to Delhi and are now set­tled in Mumbai.

Ke­shav: I am from Kerela, but my dad is in the army, so I’ve lived ev­ery­where in In­dia. Seven years back, I met Venky at a col­lege fest and we formed a band. Through Venky, I got to know that Sanam and Sa­mar were look­ing for a drum­mer and I joined in.

Sanam: And like I said be­fore, this is the first place where we per­formed to­gether. That was in 2009, and in 2010, we re­leased our first al­bum.
