Explore Hyderabad's Music Scene By Following These Bands & Their Gigs

Local musicians are creating waves beyond the city borders, and here’s a list of few you should look out for. No matter what your taste in music is, you can find some tunes from these incredible groups that you will enjoy, and perhaps even cherish.

Threeory

Threeory is an experimental fusion band comprising of five members. Syntyche Mongro (vocals), Mark Talur (keys), Senti Along (guitars), Parsa Dattasai (violin), and Tarun Vishal (drums) who blend Indian classical with different kinds of world music. Playing at popular locations around the city, from Tabula Rasa and Air Live to massive events like New Year parties and Sunday Soul Sante, this band will transport you to a different place altogether. Do check their weekly schedule on Instagram and plan a gig night!

Capricio

Capricio — a classical fusion band that's taking Telugu music to places. Ever since we watched their first video on YouTube, we've been fans and watching them perform at places like The Moonshine Project, Tabula Rasa, HyLife is nothing short of brilliant experience. If you haven't watched them perform yet, we urge you to look up their next performance on Instagram and go! 

The Songsmiths

The Songsmiths represents the trio — Saikat Basu (bass and vocals), Avinash Ekka (guitars), and Karthik Kalyan (drums). Each member of this band takes a particular interest in different genres, ranging from Jazz, RnB, Electronica to Folk Music. What happens when these differences come together in the form of one of their original songs is a brilliant ‘easy listening’ experience for the listeners (If you’re a rookie, or a musician yourself, you will surely enjoy their stuff). Check out their song about the cityscape in wee hours of the night or hunt down their feature on Kappa TV. We’re definitely looking forward to more of their original compositions and gearing up for some crazy live-performances.

The Playmores

Formed in 2015, The Playmores comprises Rinky (lead vocals & guitar), Chaitanya (keyboards), Sai (drums), and Ananth (bass guitar). Each band member comes from a drastically different musical background and together they create a sound that sets them apart from the rest. They take songs from all genres of music ranging from classic rock and grunge to contemporary pop and transform them, making versions of their own. With an intent to take familiar songs and add their own creativity to it, they give electric live performances that will blow your mind. Have you checked out their amazing cover of Sayonee yet? Catch them live at popular hangout spots in the city.

Jammers

Known for their regional music covers, Jammers is yet another homegrown band. We love hitting up their gigs because we can expect a fine mix of contemporary regional music and classics like Ilayaraja and AR Rahman. The band members include Krishna Tejasvi (lead vocalist), Shashank Bhaskaruni (drummer), Naren RKS (keyboardist), Chinna Swamy (guitarist), and Jagadish Chintala (bass guitarist). Attracting crowds from all across the city, these folks perform at least 2-3 times a week at venues like Tabula Rasa, The Moonshine Project, etc. They also perform in other cities like Bangalore.
