“Music expresses feeling and thought, without language; it was below and before a speech, and it is above and beyond all words” – Robert G. Ingersoll.

It is just a connection that one develops with different notes, highs, and lows in a song, in tune, with the beats.

Last but not the least, this band is the senior-most in the list of bands with some of the finest talents ever possible. It is lovable enough to see a band creating alternative music and cultures. The band was founded in 1985 by Uday Benegal, Mahesh Tinaikar, Zubin Balaporia, Mark Selwyn, Jayesh Gandhi, and Mark Menezes and has continued to serve music to date.
