Default Hi, this is Akash from India

Hello Music lovers,

This is Akash from India. A Project Engineer by profession, i am a die hard music fan. Music is the only Savior for me after hours of talks and meetings. As of now, i am not much aware of music other than Pakistani, Indian and a few western bands. This is what brings me here. Hope to get enlightened with music of each corner of the world.
Thats all about me.

Welcome to MusicBanter, Akash

Do you have a favourite artist?

Thanks tore.

Since i am pretty new to Western music, i dont have any favourite artist, but i do keep myself updated with bands of Rihanna, Linkin Park, Metallica, Pink Floyd, and Akon. I was a big fan of Backstreet boys, but seem to have lost touch with there music.

They haven't made any music since the early 2000s. Boy bands have pretty much faded out by now.

Welcome Akash!

Aren't boy bands coming back? I'm specifically thinking of One Direction and the cultural impact they might have.

I was actually wondering if you might have a favourite artist closer to home, from India or Pakistan

Hi Akash, and welcome!

I feel MusicBanter is a great place to learn about music with which one is not familiar. I hope you'll enjoy the site.

I grew up hearing mostly Western classical music and whatever pop music was on the radio in the U.S., so in a way, like you, my music horizons had some limits. After I joined MusicBanter and began to explore the wider world of music, I have enjoyed hearing songs and styles that are completely new to me, such as (some of my new favorites that I like to share in case I find people who like them, too ) ...

ESKAMON - "Fine Objects" (electronica)


Eskamon - Fine Objects - YouTube

^ Strange, isn't it?

GET WELL SOON - "Angry Young Man" (a recent song by a German musician)


Get Well Soon - Angry Young Man (Official Video) - YouTube

I hope you'll find MusicBanter to be a pleasant place to relax after all your talks and meetings.

@Conan: Yeah, the boys are gone. They are doing some stage show these days, not sure if they are gonna make a comeback.

@tore: Yeah, i do have a lot of artists who never go off my playlist. Some of them like Adnan Sami, Strings & Jal (Pakistani Bands), Kailash Kher, Raeth (Pakistani Band, not active these days). I thought you guys might not be familiar with Indian/pakistani music, hence din mention them.

VEGANGELICA: Thank a lot "Musical Mammal". You struck the right chord. Being bought up in India, i am not very familiar with music of countries other than India/Pakistan and a few western rock bands. This brings me to this place. Hope i can learn from you people. Atleast i will get to make some melodious frnz out here.
PS: Loved "GET WELL SOON", thanks.
