DESH
Indian Classical - Bengali Folk - Rock Fusion Band

Kolkata Bangla Band Desh

Once upon a time a vocalist having strong affinity towards Indian Classical and Grunge Alternative and a guitarist inclined more towards Blues and Jazz met, and Desh was formed!

Then they started the hunt for other players. They found a few (actually quite a few: Somnath as a guitarist, Vineet as an Octopad player, Kuntal as a guitarist and so on) and finally decided to go with Chayan on lead and rhythm guitars, Pradita on Bass Guitars and Debu on Drums and Keyboards. That was the formation of Desh, and believe it or not, all this drama took place in 6 months (and they are not done yet) !

Kolkata Bangla Band DeshDesh are more of a thought than a band.
