AGAM, the all BITSian music band, has been sending ripples down the music world these past few months. They were back in the news again this past october and this time around for a noble cause, pairing up with one of India's leading faces in the music world- Shreya Ghosal.
AGAM's music features a wonderful blend of classical carnatic music with modern western hues to produce a synergy of elegant melodies that provoke profound emotions in the hearts of the listeners. They have been getting raving reviews from fellow artists and critics alike in the music industry ever since they started out. Probably the crowning complement of them all was from a man who arguably is one of the greatest musicians India has ever produced- Oscar Winning A.R. Rahman. “When I first heard them, I thought the lead vocalist was really fantastic! The way they rendered their composition was great”, was what Mr. Rahman had to say about them.
Having gained such meteoric popularity, Agam had now come together with Shreya Ghosal past october for raising awareness for Breast cancer. October is observed as the breast cancer month world wide to pay homage to all those millions of women that fall victim to this dreadful malady every year. Agam, partnering with the Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA), had done its part in raising funds and extending a little hope, faith and belief to the lives of all those countless cancer patients. And by doing so with such a widely recognized artist as Shreya Ghosal, who had generously extended her voice to Agam's compositions, they had driven this cause a long way towards fruition.
As if creating an all 'techie' music band and garnering applause from some of nation's best known musicians was not impressive enough, AGAM is now using that new found fame to give something back to the society; which makes this amazingly talented group extra special and makes the BITSian community world wide extremely proud.
