Bangalore’s Swarathma rocks as Radio City 91.1 FM Best Hindi Band

Radio City’s hunt for India’s best Hindi band stopped at Bangalore-based Swarathma, which was declared Radio City 91.1 FM Best Hindi Band. Yeshua came in second, while another Bangalore-based band Ek came in third. Swarathma has also won an album deal with EMI.

Speaking about the initiative, Rana Barua, Head-Marketing, Radio City, said that they would organise such contests every year now, which would grow bigger in size in the coming year. “The contest would provide a singing platform for all those upcoming bands that have hidden musical talent within them,” he added.

Swarathma won over the judges and audience alike the moment they stepped on to the stage. Thereafter there was no looking back as each performance took them towards victory. The band was praised not just for their music and songs, but their creative presentation as well.

The first-of-its-kind reality radio event in India, nearly 125 entries were received for the Radio City 91.1 FM Best Hindi Band from all over the country. Subsequent screenings saw not three but seven talented bands compete for the coveted crown. Adding excitement to the finals was a performance by well-known band Indian Ocean.

The judges for the national round included Euphoria’s Dr Palash Sen, Parikrama’s Subir Malik, and Vibhav Rao of EMI.

The other bands at the finals were Talaash – The Band of Engineers, Faridkot, Aas, and Shor Bazaar, besides the three winners.
