The band’s youthful attitude and emotive style, personified by front man Ashutosh’s dulcet vocals, and steady strings of radio-friendly rocks and manly ballads give Musafir’s music a presence, relished by the listeners of diverse genres.
The group came together in the 2006. Working for same corporate firm, Lead singer Ashutosh Jain and bassist Anshul Bansal, along with guitarist Amit Vadav, recorded a single for a short movie in their home made studio. Amazed by the output, they decided to take music-business seriously and added Percussions and Keyboards in their Live line-up, forming the band named “Stonned Inc”, which after a couple of concerts renamed as “Musafir”. The band went through some changes in Line-up in order to achieve the desired sound and perfection, Rocky and Monie replaced Viresh and Anshul.
Playing live since 3 years and performed nearly 100 shows, Musafir is also known for on-stage skills and Sensational Live acts. Their brand of fresh rock sound blends to create an experience, which is being hailed by many as the Next BIG THING in the Indian music scene.
Musafir is led by Fame gurukul part 2 (Fame X) fame Ashutosh, who has learned the tricks of the trade from the industrial big shots like Palash Sen, Daler Mehndi, Soumya Rao and Ganesh Hegde.
Musafir describing their music:
“We are nothing unusual, we do not sing about Death, graves or blood, we are experimental only up to the mark of positivity. We believe in beauty, happiness and talent. Our songs are beautiful with amazing lyrics, great motif lines and an element of Rock, adoptable by every one. We have kept balance between innovations and originality of our thoughts.”
Ashutosh, on his energy level while performing:
“I’d do anything. I’d damn run across the audience in the stadium, to fix the microphone on the mouth of last man in the last row, to sing along with me. I’ve climbed lighting gears, I’ve jumped from the 8-10 ft elevated stages, I’ve laid down my guitar and picked a Dhol, singing for 4 hrs continuously nearly kills you, that’s crazy, but that’s what I like, bringing smile on their faces.”
