NASYA – The Sufi Rock Band Live At Quantum The Leap
Nasya is a fusion rock band based in Delhi. Playing a blend of Sufi, Haryanvi and Punjabi Folk and rock influences, they are not your typical fusion band. Their sound is distinctly characteristic, finely balancing traditional hindustani vocals with western elements of jazz, blues and rock music.
Good music can set the mood right for a good conversation, but great music makes one want to stand up, listen and forget the conversation – and that is exactly what Nasya is best known for.
The name Nasya comes from a Hebrew word meaning “A miracle of God”. And it is indeed quite a miracle that a few talented and skilled individuals from extremely diverse musical backgrounds could come together and in a very short while realize their dream to create and play rousing music while transcending boundaries of influences, genres and stereotypes.
After winning several rock band competitions across Delhi like Jamia Hamdard, PGDAV, Dyal Singh and CVS to name a few, Nasya headlined at colleges like Miranda House and Lady Irwin College in 2009.
The hysteria of 2009 paled in comparison with the euphoria of 2010. With corporate shows at Canon and Green Peace and guest performances alongside artistes like Shibani Kashyap and Manak-E. But the best was yet to come in the form of MTV Rock On Season 2 which expanded the band’s audience all over the country.
After their hugely memorable performance at MTV Rock On, Nasya returned home armed with new fans and new members to kick start their 2011 campaign.
Being featured twice on SAHARA TV‘s Cricket World Cup discussion show alongside eminent personalities like Raju Srivastava and Manoj Tiwari was indeed a feather in the cap of Nasya. Combined with great performances alongside the likes of Pakistani group JAL and guest performances at colleges like College of Business Studies, Jamia Milia Islamia, Dyal Singh College, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, NC College of Engineering, ANDC College and many more, 2011 has been a roller coaster ride for the band and their well wishers.
