Press Release

AID-MIT and MIT Sangam are proud to present India’s biggest underground musical success, Indian Ocean - Live in Concert. Get ready to be mesmerized with a unique genre of fusion music that encompasses elements of traditional Indian ragas as well as western rock, guitar and drums!

Indian Ocean is a pioneering band in the Indian fusion and rock scene.  Their sound can be described as “Indo-rock fusion with jazz-spiced rhythms that integrates shlokas, sufism, environmentalism, mythology and revolution.”Formed in the early 90s, Indian Ocean has spearheaded the Indian rock scene and is one of India’s few politically conscious bands.  A cult band in its own right, the group has amalgamated Indian folk music with Western rock.  Culling their lyrics from a variety of languages, including Hindi, Kashmiri, Bengali, Sanskrit and even Aramaic, their music ranges from rocking political anthems to meditative spiritual ballads.
