TGW 6.0 - Day 5: Ska Vengers + The Fanculos + Mosko
Three absolutely electrifying acts that will have you dancing in no time, at the beautiful Lodi Garden Restaurant.
The Ska Vengers
A live eight-piece band that blends ‘ska’ rhythms with elements of dub, punk, jazz and rap to come up with a form of music that is refreshingly different, energetic and highly danceable. All members are well seasoned performers in their own right. They have received much praise from critics and audiences alike. Closer to TV channel VH1 India have devoted a 20 minute show to the band featuring songs from the album with specially made animation to accompany the songs. In 2015 the band are currently nominated as best band for their most recent video ‘Frank Brazil’ at VH1 Europe Music Awards in the international artist category.
The Fanculos was dreamt up by half-Italian, half-Guyanese, British-born musician Ramon Ibrahim. Ramon was heavily infuenced at an early age by British SKA bands such as The Specials, The Beat, Madness etc., and set about writing his own music. The Fanculos' hailing from Mumbai, will play their debut performance in Delhi at The Gig Week 6.0, and you can expect a frecracker performancer that is a mixture of high energy SKA, dub, reggae and funk.
An avant-garde duo from Delhi comprising of Kavya Trehan and Moses Koul, the band has performed shows of the likes of Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Ragasthan Festival and Live From The Console. Deriving influences from topics and subjects as diverse as Manga and anime to tea, independent drama and films - the band's live act is an evocative cinematic experience with a hint of ballroom waltz, emotional subversion and copious amounts of noir.
