Sean Roldan & Friends – Contemporary Indian Music Band

Didn’t blog much for a while (#Confession) so back with this post about one of my yet another favorite Indian Band.

Sean Roldan & Friends is an Contemporary Indian Music Band which fuses Indian classical and folk music with Jazz, Blues and country music. What gives me more pleasure listening to their songs is its Tamizh Lyrics. For me Its a very different and unique blend of senseful lyrics and fusion music which is so bliss to hear.

One more thing i want to highlight about this band members is their vision to bring music out on streets and make music available to all sorts of people. They recently started playing their unplugged street music performances in eliots beach on weekends which is open and free to all. Many other musicians also joined them and created some awesome instant jams. Its really a great fun to be there in beach, listen to them and rejoice.
