Advaita is an eclectic fusion band based in New Delhi, India. Since their inception in 2004, they have established themselves as one of the most innovative and original acts on the Indian music scene. Advaita has successfully carved out a niche for their style of music in the global context, while staying true to their characteristically Indian roots. Advaita’s music gives the listener the opportunity to enjoy the brilliance of Hindustani classical, as well as the thrill of rock.
From the smooth, polished husky tone of the Western Vocalist to the deep and powerful delivery of the Hindustani Vocalist, the music of Advaita is further elevated by the synthesis of guitars, keyboards, drums, the tabla and the exotic drone of the Sarangi. Of all Indian instruments, it is said that the sarangi most resembles the sound of the human voice. Advaita was the only band to be part of season 1 of MTV Coke Studio India. The spectacular response to ‘Coke Studio’ resulted in the band being given the honor of doing a full one-hour episode on the legendary show MTV Unplugged.
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.
