Considered as pioneers in what they play, Fusion Indie-rock mavericks – The Indian Ocean  set off a soul tsunami at a Bhubaneswar venue after three long years. They played to a fan packed Janata Maidan on the evening of 13th January, Sunday as a fitting conclusion to Alma Fiesta, IIT Bhubaneswar annual socio-cultural festival.

As a usual winter evening in Bhubaneswar would be, It was already dark by 6:30 and due to the rush and initial delays in clearing the security, entering the grounds got a tad bit late and from far off, one could catch Amit Kilam checking the sound of his drums as Logic Baba (read: Rahul Ram) came on stage and apologized to the audience for the delay in the sound check. This is one of the many things that sets Indian Ocean off from the rest of their contemporaries. Their candidness, their way of engaging the audience, the whole jam-room feel in their shows is so relaxing! It certainly is different,  in all the right means!

The performances started with a not-so-much heard song of theirs, followed by an Instrumental that might get you to reckon one of those odd moments when you had mixed feelings about your life’s best taken decisions. Quite, Philosophically. All of this was followed by a Bangla number, Maaya (Dewarists) and of course, the soulful Bandeh that made the crowd swoon the bass.
