‘Canvas Laugh club is opening its doors to something that we have been wanting to explore for a very long time. In an attempt to resurrect the dying live music scene in our country, Canvas is aiming to curate and execute a gig with a unique setting, with top notch artists, who will provide you with an unforgettable experience.The right way to witness a music gig is when all concentration is channelised towards the act that is on stage. The music is so elite that there is no room for conversations. The theatre setup in Canvas is the optimum space to experience just that. With the intention of making this into a regular affair, you shall be hearing from us on a more frequent basis.See you at the show! ‘
Advaita is an eclectic fusion band, an expression of eight musical identities that dissolve into one another to create a unique sound. They are a band based in New Delhi, India. From their inception in 2004, their brand of contemporary ‘organic’ Indian psychedelic music has been hailed as one of the most original and creative sounds to ever come out of the Indian underground music scene.Nowhere else can one hear a sarangi, tabla and Hindustani Classical vocalist blend so effortlessly, yet so exotically with guitars, drums and keyboards.
In 2009 Advaita launched their first album on EMI records titled Grounded In Space and this really catapulted the status of the band. Recorded at the famed Yash Raj studios, Mumbai, the album was both critically acclaimed and commercially successful. Later that year, they were one of only four bands from India selected by famous producer John Leckie for the British Council Soundpad Project, recording 2 songs for a globally released compilation as well as touring the UK. More international gigs followed with a trip to Singapore.
Advaita’s fan base was boosted further by their presence on the inaugural seasons of MTV Coke Studio and MTV Unplugged. Following this, the band released their second album titled ‘The Silent Sea’ in 2012. The album went on to bag the Global Indian Music Award (GIMA) for ‘Best Rock Album’ and the Jack Daniel Rock Award for ‘Best Album’. Close on the heels of these awards, the band was also featured in a prime time show called ‘The Dewarists’ on the Star World channel and more recently ‘Sound Trek’ on the Fox Traveller channel.
Advaita is now one of India’s leading bands with one of the most exciting live acts, redefining contemporary Indian music, blending the traditional with the modern in a way never seen before.
