So over the years I've met a few people who are part of the music industry. Most of them are in the Hindi music industry and are either individual artists or part of a band.
Knowing the guys from The Anupam Roy Band has been a different kind of a revelation though - of course they are the first, and as yet, the only band/artists I know or have interacted with from the 'Bengali' music world.....
Most artists or performers I've seen or interacted with have had a lovely presence on screen/stage, but get to know them back stage or interact with them personally and you see an entirely different face altogether - one that may not necessarily be charming as you've been led to believe. That's okay, I'm not here to judge anyone.
The fact that the members of The Anupam Roy Band are great on-stage and super-relaxed and even more so back-stage is super-refreshing and comes as a gust-load of fresh air. This pic was taken back-stage at a performance in Kolkata. The camaraderie between each and every member is so evident and the fact that they are so relaxed, yet pumped-up and filled with energy is quite contagious must say :-)
Maybe that's the reason why they're surely THE WANTED ones around now !!!!!
