Something Relevant aka STR, young India's leading Jam Rock band, is now poised to perform live in the city. After giving memorable pan-India and international performances over five years, STR has established itself thanks to the explosive live acts and fresh sounds.
Tanmey, STR's guitarist, said, "People will be able to hear some of our new songs at this gig. We have come back after studying music for six months. We learned about Jazz and studied its beauty. Now, our sound has evolved and a new set of sound tracks will be played live."
The six-member ensemble has discovered sounds that are a fusion of Jazz, Funk, Blues, Reggae, Rock, Pop, Soul and Afrohighlife. The pulsing metrics of the megapolis Bombay has also inspired them.
Also in their favour is the fact that their tunes strike a chord with youngsters who can relate to the lyrics.
Though it is dominated by Funk, the band exudes the undying optimism of a young nation signaling to the world the coming-of-age of a new India.
On January 13, 8.30 pm
