A band that not only legitimised indigenous rock music in India but continues to renew and revive the scene, Indus Creed have released four highly successful albums. Their latest, EVOLVE, was mixed by the Grammy-nominated engineer Tim Palmer and released worldwide by Universal Music. The iconic group have won a slew of awards, including an MTV Viewer’s Choice Award in 1993, Best Band at the Jack Daniel’s Rock Awards in 2012, Best Rock Artist at the Radio City Freedom Awards in 2013, and Vh1 India’s first ever Hall of Fame award in 2014. They recently released the heavy-hitting single “Thief” and are currently working on new material.
When he’s between big festivals and large stages, Uday hits small clubs and left-field events with his quirky acoustic-pop trio alongside multi-instrumentalists Sankarshan “Shanks” Kini and Ashwin “Fufu” Andrews. Whirling Kalapas features soaring voices, acoustic guitars, a violin, mandolin, an occasional drum kit, shakers, bells, shells and any object they feel would fit their sound. Think Iron & Wine meets Manu Chao with an RK Laxman twist.
