Different bands came together for the cause of Uttarkhand

Help is pouring in from all quarters for the much needed cause of Uttarakhand. The city is witnessing many events to raise funds for the flood-ravaged State. United Unplugged Uttarakhand was one such event that took place at Manhattan, The Craft Brewery recently. Conceptualised by Parikrama, in support of Leap Foundation, itbrought various bands and artists to perform together.

The event had many famous bands like Them Clones, Indian Ocean, Rabbi Shergill, Parikrama, Susmit Sen Chronicles and other artists with Sushant Singh making a special appearance. It was the first time after the break-up that Susmit Sen Chronicles and Indian Ocean were performing together. A band called Swarrveda had in fact come from Uttarakhand to perform at the event. Speaking of the disaster, band member Sumit Sharma said, “I feel terrible about it, I belong to that area and we know how difficult is to live now.” The event marked Swarrveda’s debut gig in Delhi.

The programme was kicked off with Swarrveda’s performance. Soon the crowd grooved to the beats and as each chord played, the level of enthusiasm increased. Them Clones, who are known for their energetic performances gave the audience a good time.

When Parikrama came to the stage and performed the crowd was left asking for more yelling “once more”. Parikrama belted out their popular numbers like “Am I Dreaming”. Rabbi Shergill came to stage with his song “Bulla ki jaana” and “Challa”. He improvised on stage presenting variations of the song, giving a new twist to the original. Rabbi was followed by Indian Ocean, who performed “Arre ruk ja re bande” and finally came Susmit Sen, who performed “Ori Chiraiya” with Indian Ocean.
