Bio

Sadho started off as a purely experimental fusion band in September 2009 with only 4 members. A couple of performances at The Open Mic event at The Someplace Else pub ,The Park Hotel, Kolkata set the ball rolling, with the band being picked up by an event management company for the New Years Eve concert at the prestigious Narangi Club, Guwahati, Dec 2009-10. After having conducted several auditions, the band decided on the current line-up. With most of the members hailing from rural areas/outskirts of Kolkata, exposure and funds were limited. Then again, these factors have played a crucial role in shaping their unique sound. Earthy vocals, free flowing rhythms, use of indigenous folk instruments (khamak in the song ud jayega) and bucolic violin solos form a part of their compositions. Although each member has a heavy resume when it comes to experience in music performance, with many awards, certifications and recognitions between them, Sadho has not played too many concerts in the professional circuit. Barring few gigs at local Kolkata pubs, the band had headlined in 8th Mile- the Cultural fest of R.V. College of Engg., Bangalore(April 2010). With the dearth of competitions and events promoting fusion music the band is devoting its time primarily to composing for their niche audience. They are collaborating with prominent musicians in Kolkata for an upcoming charity event to be held in Kolkata in August.Even though their music has so far been confined to this genre, the members are voracious music listeners with influences ranging from Raghu Dixit Project and Indian Ocean to John Mayer and Kaki King. Very Indian, very ethnic and true to their roots, Sadho guarantees music in its purest form.
