Testimonials

It's always a pleasure to play to a young college crowd, more so at an esteemed institution as an IIT. But playing for Spring Fest 2014 without doubt exceeded all our expectations. The 20000 strong crowd not only enjoyed the music dished out but took active part by singing along all the tracks the duo performed. IIT Kharagpur Spring fest was our 3rd concert in a span of 3 days, but it rejuvenated us by the sheer energy the audience exuded. We look forward to visit IIT kharagpur many more times in the years to come.

I wish to state how much I enjoyed the experience of performing at the Springfest. I was impressed with the efficiency and cordiality of Mr. Rishav Ranjan from the first moment of the invitation to perform. This continued when I was so graciously transported from Kolkata and received at IIT. The atmosphere of the Springfest was remarkable and the hospitality was truly in the India tradition and at the same time with the organization of the new India. I was impressed with the enthusiasm of the audience in an experience of western music which was for many of the listeners a new experience.

Swarathma has lovely memories of IIT Kharagpur. It's a delight to play for an audience that loves and knows its music. Beginning with the journey to Kharagpur, the way we were taken care of, arriving at the calm and serene campus: we just knew that this show would be special. I've always been excited about being part of cultural festivals, having been an active participant in my college days. I spent the morning before the soundcheck watching Wildfire prelims, reliving the days gone by! When the show began it was high energy from the word go! I loved the diversity of the audience, from IITians to those who had come to participate. There's always a ripple of thrill that goes through the crowd when Vasu gets into the audience: IIT Kgp was no different. But my most treasured memory is us leading the chant of "KGP ka Tempo - High Hai" as part of our song. That was just insane! Here's hoping we meet again, at another gig, really soon.
