Alma Fiesta presents Ganesh Talkies for Head Bang this edition on 12th January,2013. Ganesh Talkies is an alt-rock band from Kolkata, which was formed in summer 2011. It’s a bunch of five very talented young Bollywood music lovers who have come together to create a blend of rhythm and festivity. The Talkies blends alt-rock, reggae and pop in a funky, twisted brew peppered with influences culled from cinema. The result is Bollywood’s quirk and extreme kitsch meeting a dance-heavy ethos in the band’s sound and live vibe.
