About the performers:
Comedian 1 - Sudarsan a.k.a 'Soda'
Sudarsan Ramamurthy AKA Soda is a stand-up comedian, comedy producer, writer, author, and freelancer for hire. When he first told a joke, his friends cringed and moaned. This inspired him to make a career out of telling jokes to strangers. He has received many death threats from close friends for his puns off-stage. Thankfully, he has received good responses via his on-stage performances. Soda produces show with Chennai Comedy, one of Chennai's longest running platforms for stand-up.
Musician 1 - Kevin Paul
Kevin is an independent artist from Chennai who enjoys performing to an intimate crowd interacting with them. His writing style follows a conversational or narrative style since he has been exposed to country music during his adolescent years. His music would usually revolve around pop and rock sprinkled with a little bit of surrealism. At the moment, he enjoys performing to an unassuming crowd.
Musician 2 - Bimal Thankachan
Bimal grew up listening to BoneyM, colonial cousins , Backstreet Boys and a variety of Malayalam movie songs , while simultaneously going for Carnatic music classes. Music became instrumental in his life with the introduction of the guitar and synthesiser and slowly started to become everything he wanted. With years battling the vocational war and finding some semblance of stability as a video producer, his music is stronger than ever. He writes music with emphasis on depression, solitude and hope, and on occasion designing orchestral scores for short films and other videos.
