The Gig Week – aswekeepsearching + Foi
aswekeepsearching has been turning heads and perking up ears over the world for a while now, spreading a message of positivity and good times in a way only they can, while keeping their feet planted firmly on the ground. Hailing from sunny Ahmedabad, Gujarat, formed in 2013, the outfit comprises of vocalist/guitarist Uddipan Sarmah, guitarist/keyboardist Shubham Gurung, bassist Bob Alex and drummer Gautam Deb. The quartet brought us ‘Khwaab’, and ‘Khwaab’ brought them ‘Zia’. The newest album, ‘Zia’ was conceived over the following year the band spent touring and promoting ‘Khwaab’, and it is the culmination of their shared experiences – the wonderful, the bittersweet, the hell and high water has been funnelled into the eleven track album. The album also sees the use of instruments like the Violin, Viola, Cello, Sitar and the Tabla, having collaborated with like-minded artists on some songs, who've added their own unique colour to the bands soundscape.
Foi started out as an experimental project for Bangalore based guitarist Sanjay Kumar. His influences over the years have all boiled down to one album showcasing his guitar playing skills. Sanjay Kumar has been playing guitar professionally for almost a decade now with various bands across India. He is also the Founder/Director of the music school "Let's Make Some Music" in Indiranagar, Bangalore.
