Pakistani duo Zeb and Haniya brought to Bangalore refreshingly original sounds that range from lilting melodies like 'paimona' to foot-tapping numbers like 'chup'. They love the crowd here, and the crowd loves them right back.
It was an encore after seven years. Flautist Ronu Majumdar and Carnatic vocalist Bombay Jayashri had performed together at the first edition of the Friday Review November Fest.

Srinivas, Naresh Iyer, Madhushree and Saptaparna Chakraborty shared a wealth of nostalgia in Bangalore at the November Fest 2012. Remembering Rajesh was 'Shaam Mastaani' and this clip from Lata Ganapathy of The Hindu is testimony to an intoxicating evening.
