HA NOI (VNS)— Boomarang, one of the top rock bands in India, is staging a concert in Ha Noi to celebrate the Indian festival of Diwali today, at the American Club.
Formed in 2005, the four-member band has a large following of rock music lovers in India. The band has managed to carve out their own distinctive identity on the Indian rock scene with their unique take on rock'n'roll. Their brand of music is best described as a blend of blues and hip hop spiced with a lot of nu-age metal, a sound that the band describes as "junk rock".
Rolling Stone magazine included them in the Top 10 Indian artists to watch out for in 2009. They have travelled to many places to perform and won a number of awards, including the Nokia Lords of Music title in 2010 and the Band of the Year award in 2009 and 2010.
Diwali Night, where the band is scheduled to perform, will start at 5.30pm today at the American Club, 19-21 Hai Ba Trung Street, Ha Noi.
Tickets cost between VND50,000 for children and 200,000 for adults.
The festival, organised by INCHAM (Indian Chamber of Commerce in Viet Nam) will also feature Indian and international delicacies.
Indian Ambassador Ranjit Rae is also set to officially launch the band's self-titled debut album Boomarang in Viet Nam during the festival in Ha Noi. — VNS
