About Indian Ocean:
The creation of Indian Ocean is really impressive that would definitely interest you to attend this fusion live concert in Mumbai. It’s been years and years before, when Susmit met Asheem during a concert back in 1984. Susmit, a guitarist, who was a fan of Niharika – a Bengali band Asheem played tabla for. With a vision to evolve a new and unique sound, Asheem was taken up by Susmit. Susmit, in turn, learnt the nuances of rhythm from Asheem – not the basic 4/4 beat, but the mysteries of chhand, jhonk and taal.
Afterwards, they both started performing duo for the next three years with no vocals anywhere in sight, Susmit on guitar and Asheem on drums and tabla. They performed the most memorable debut concert in Roorkee. In order to raise money for a demo recording of their band, Susmit sold his electric guitar in 1990.
With the name Indian Ocean, Shaleen Sharma on drums, and Indrajit Dutta and Anirban Roy on bass, they recorded the demo, taping an incredible 45 minutes and 7 songs in 1 day. The quality of the rushed recording demo tape was really majestic, which impressed HMV enough to offer them an album deal. Then the duo of Indian Ocean recorded an original album in Calcutta, which took a year to get released. And, at that time, Indian Ocean made the highest selling record by any Indian band ever by selling 40,000 copies.
Although, they went through many ups and downs to strengthen the band. A schoolmate of Susmit called as Rahul Rama joined the band, drummer Shaleen left the band and Amit Kalim took his place, Times Music signed on Indian Ocean in 1998, there concerts went on to abroad, the band was nominated as MTV’s Artists of the Month, won the AVMax Award for the best produced album of 2003 and much more achievements made them globally popular.
In 2009, the band lost one of their founder member, Asheem through a massive heart attack. However, the band continues to compose music and perform in concerts, hoping to continue making good music! And, this is how, the fusion of guitar and tabla became the India’s leading global band to perform fusion live concerts across the globe.
