Unleash the power of new within you at the Emerge Festival at Delhi on 21 May, 2015 and Mumbai on 22 May, 2015
Alternate rock sensation, Alt- J, took music enthusiasts by storm on their maiden tour to India in February 2015 as part of the Emerge Music And Arts Festival.
The headliners were Alt-J, Grammy-Award nominee, and Daniel Waples, virtuoso hang-drum player featuring The Petebox and Parvaaz, Bangalore’s rock-outfit.
They performed to a sold out venue of over 6000 people in Bangalore and understandably so, chose to come back to India after the unfortunate weather in Delhi on the 1st of March.
Alt-J is slated to play at the Emerge Festival on the 21st and 22nd along with singer- songwriter Prateek Kuhad and Delhi outfit Advaita.
As Alt-J fans are already aware, the band has a strong indie and alternative vibe. A sound that is a result of necessity due to making music in their dorm rooms. ALT-J band member Gus Unger-Hamilton has said, “We can’t wait to come back to India. Our first trip there was incredible and we’re looking forward to seeing our fans out there again at the Emerge Festival.”
LIVE Viacom18 is committed to providing music connoisseurs a taste of global musical arena. After the cancellation of Delhi edition of the festival, Emerge is making a glorious comeback to enthrall alternative rock lovers. After mesmerizing the Indian crowd in February, Alt-J is raring to go and repeat the feat encore to capture the hearts of fanatic music enthusiasts.
Opening the act for ALT-J will be Prateek Kuhad, Prateek is a singer-songwriter from New York/New Delhi, active since 2010. With a pop rock feel to his music, Kuhad has played several acoustic shows across New York City. Having performed at venues across New York, Prague, New Orleans and India and with the release of his EP, Raat Raazi, in 2013, Prateek Kuhad instantly established himself as one of the most promising artists in the Indian independent music scene.
Along with Prateek Kuhad, another Indian Band band which will be performing in Delhi is Advaita – a Fusion band from Delhi, formed in September 2004. It is the expression of eight distinct musical sensibilities that dissolve into each other to bring forth a truly unique and ingenious sound. Their music is deeply inspired by the quest to discover rhythms and textures that resonate around us and within us. Advaita was featured on the Indian leg of the MTV shows Coke Studio and MTV Unplugged.
