Formed in the early ‘90s, Indian Ocean has been one of the few mainstays of the non-Bollywood Indian music scene. Their unique blend of traditional Indian folk and Indian instruments, with rock ’n’ roll, jazz and fusion have earned them a cult following, both within and without the country.
The band has managed to maintain this inimitable sound in all their albums and have only gotten better over the years. They don’t shy away from difficult themes and their songs touch on social issues, politics and the conflicts of modern Indian life. Definitely exclusive in what they do, it’s no exaggeration to say that Indian Ocean is the most celebrated Indian music entity ever. You don’t want to miss them.
