Blind Fold: Patna’s walk towards Rock!

Formed in the year 2009, Blind fold is a multi-genre band from Patna. They’ve performed in a number of live concerts, events and self-organized shows. The Artists from Patna share a common dream to resurface the long lost roots of music in the capital and give the old music trend a swing, much of which they have already achieved. A line-up of artists that come from the different backgrounds adds versatility to their masterpieces. Their passion for music comes from a number of different sources and keep themselves inspired by listening to poets, musicians and shayars- Pushkin, Ghalib, Byron and Keats being some of the eminent ones who they draw inspiration from. They believe in making the sort of music that connects them all from within.

Apart from live shows and concerts, they’ve composed background music/sound fx tracks for short films, T.V shows, adverts and corporate productions.

The Blind fold are not childhood buddies and much like many other bands they came together gradually meeting each other through connections, connections that spoke of the universal language-MUSIC!  Naish Chandra (Guitarist) and Abhishek Raj (Guitarist), after working as free lancers for about a year met Hansum Krishna (Keyboardist/Producer) and the trio could finally call themselves a music group. Prithviraj Burhagohain (Drummer) was the 4th addition to the group and as a unit they slowly augmented their skills and performed in the circuits of the city gaining attention of the local news and social media. Preeti Singh (vocalist) and Harsh Sidharth (lyricist/Vocalist) completed the group and now this team of 6 were called BLINDFOLD! It didn’t take long for these so very talented young turks to shift gears and record the background score for a documentary movie in the year 2011.
