They played for Johnny and Hyderabad Blues, and now they are playing for bears and elephants. This weekend, save yourself from boredom and animals from slavery.
Alter Egos, the seniormost band of the twin cities, will be rocking Hyderabad this Saturday, at the teen hot-spot Durgam Cheruvu. The band, which consists of a group of six talented musicians, have been having the rock-lovers of town on their feet for 7 years now.
Vijay started playing the tabla as early as when he was 3 years old, and transformed over a period of time to a lead guitarist. Loki, a musician who is extremely talented, plays the keyboard. Anand is a singer with powerful vocals. Soumya is an accomplished singer from a family of trained singers, and quite authentic in delivery and modulations. Badri is a drummer who too started at a very young age and has numerous recognitions to his credit. And Baba plays the bass guitar.
The band will play classical and progressive rock, which they are really good at. They have composed the music for an English song for the Telugu film Johnny, and a song called Dil Pe Math Lo for the movie Hyderabad Blues 2, which has been featured on MTV. The group is currently in the process of composing a song for the Hyderabad Traffic Police to create awareness of traffic rules.
The entry to the concert is through tickets of Rs. 100, available at Coffee Day outlets at only Somajiguda, Begumpet, Road No. 36 Jubilee Hills and Road No. 1 Banjara Hills. The event is being organised by R Kishore Reddy of Agro Tech Foods Limited and Vikram N Subbaiah of Satyam Computers, to raise funds for animal welfare organisations Wildlife SOS and Animani Foundation.
Wildlife SOS is Hyderabad-based, and rescues street-performing bears and rehabilitates them. Animani Foundation of Bangalore is an elephant-protection organisation. So when you are rocking this weekend, it's for noble causes.
