They once played to 300,000 screaming fans. The only Indian band that has done better is Shah Rukh Khan. And since THAT one never comes here, here's second best.
Royal Challenge, as part of the Royal Hyderabad celebrations, is organising a musical concert by the Indian music band Euphoria, on 25th November, at the Hitex Exhibition grounds. Euphoria is headed by professional doctor Palash Sen, who is the lead vocalist of the group, and is supported by DJ aka Debajyoti Bhaduri on bass, Binny aka Benjamin Pinto on the keyboard, Rikki aka Hitesh Madan and Gary aka Gaurav Mishra on the guitars, Ashwani Verma on the drums, and Rakesh Bharadwaj and Prashant Trivedi on the dholak and tabla.
Euphoria was instrumental in introducing Hindrock, a melange of Hindi lyrics and Western music, to the Indian audience. Its debut album Dhoom, which was launched in 1998, was a runaway hit, and was followed by launch of Phir Dhoom in 2000, Mantra in 2001, and then Euphoria Gully in 2003. 2004 saw Euphoria collaborating with the Pakistani boys Strings for the Indo-Pak cricket series official anthem, Jeet Lo Dil, that won many hearts.
The band has played in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Dubai, Canada, Mauritius, Thailand and USA. It also performed at the prestigious Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, the birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll, to 3,00,000 screaming Americans, and at the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations, New York. It was the first band to get in and rock the assembly with music.
The entry to the concert is through passes, with one pass each available on purchase of music goodies worth Rs. 250 or above at any outlets of Planet M. Please contact Planet M at 6625-5266 for further details.
