Dil Chahta Hai Rock Version Live at IIM Rohtak

2014, so far has certainly been a fantastic year for us. Of all the gigs we played in January, the ones at TEDx SGGSCC, IIM Rohtak, and IIIT Delhi have been the most amazing ones.

A groovy song with a really wide chorus, nice chords, groovy bass lines, and an edgy, bluesy solo, if we were to define the genre, ‘Hindi Rock’ in one song, Dil Chahta Hai would be that song.

Why Hindi Rock? The Nation Wants To Know :P
