Aurko – The Power of the Sun

Aurko

Hindi Rock | Bangalore | 9 August | Website

With over 300 concerts to their credit and accolades from every angle, Aurko are one of Bangalore’s most exciting Indian Rock outfits. Kicking off in the year 2000, Aurko tasted success with their debut album hitting stands on Times Music. A music video on their lead track ‘Nadiya’ hit the channels and there was no looking back!

Aurko’s members may have come in from all over the country but Bangalore is definitely their home. Much of their influences hark back to Bengali music and culture as is evident on some of their compositions. As a tribute, Aurko released their maiden venture in Bengali titled ‘Asche Bochor Abar Hobe’ (It shall happen again next year), a popular chant at Durga Pujas the world over putting out material that took music aficionados by pleasant surprise.

Aurko are all set to release another album (work is in progress, we hear) and are about to take the Kyra stage, for some rollicking Desi Rock.
