Look what your favourite cats dragged in
Yesterday, when I came down the slope to our college portico, I knew something was different. Here was my dear friend, nay bhai, Sahil ‘Babba’ Salvi; but for the first time in the last few weeks I saw him doing his nervous-excited-12 year old girl giggle. And even though I was tempted to jibe him, saying that such unabashed enthusiasm may eat into his street cred, I held my horses: Abba, Abraham Varghese to the uninitiated, having been similarly dead-pan for the past fortnight, looked equally beguiled.
What they said to me next, let me say unto you:
“DUDE! PRONITE DAY 3 CONFIRMED!”
What they lacked for in articulateness, they made up for in awesomeness. Here’s what Abba and Babba have in store for us at this edition of Symbhav:
A great man once said, all great things must start with some kamaicha, khartaal and dholak. The Manganiars, as if a draught of the desert storm, promise to rock us off our feet. In what is billed to be both a musical and theatrical mind-blower, these men from Rajasthan will give us a taste of the up-and-down mellow that we so badly crave.
Hang on to your panchrangi safas as Symbhav gears up for some Manganiar Trippin’
Bombay Bassment is not only mind-blowing but they write pretty well too. I just read what they had to say about themselves on their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BombayBassment) and even though I would like it very much, I wouldn’t be able to do a better job even if I tried. They write, “Bombay Bassment is an urban outfit made solid by 2 Goans, 1 South Indian & 1 African. This eclectic mix of artists has led to a sound that defines the grass roots of each, the outcome of which is an upbeat blend of Hip-Hop, Rap, Reggae, Funk & Drum ‘n Bass. Despite different cultural n hence musical backgrounds, the band still manages to pull off a sound that cuts through every soul.”
Get into their groove on their Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9-hSA7gzfnhC0L1sLt0BgA), Soundcloud page (https://soundcloud.com/bombay-bassment), and as blogger-to-blogger courtesy, here’s their blog: http://bombaybassment.wordpress.com/
Let’s give Levin, Ruell, Bobkat and DJ Chandu a true blue Symbhav welcome.
And, correct me if I’m wrong, they want us to Jump! Jump! JUMP!
