Indian Ocean (band)

Indian Ocean are an Indian rock band formed in New Delhi in 1990. They are considered to be the pioneers of fusion rock genre in India. Susmit Sen, Asheem Chakravarty, Rahul Ram and Amit Kilam were the member's of the band till Asheem's death on the 25th of December, 2009. No, member has been officially inducted into the band as a replacement. Sushmit and Rahul are the only members who have appeared on the band's debut album Indian Ocean.

The musical style of the band can be at best classified as fusion music. Some music critics describe the band's music as "Indo-rock fusion with jazz-spiced rhythms that integrates shlokas, sufism, environmentalism, mythology and revolution".

Recently, the band has moved against the lines of record labels. They released their latest album 16/330 Khajoor Road online for free. The main reason for this move was the frustration over negotiating contracts with record companies and fighting over copyright issues. They have turned to concerts and sponsorships for generating revenue rather than playing in the hands of record labels. For a brief amount of time they had the sponsorship of Johnnie Walker. They are also a part of the world's first Music Personalisation Initiative named DRP (www.divineraaga.com) as one of the five 'Featured Artists'.

Famous quotes containing the words indian and/or ocean:

    But we, in anchor-watches calm,
    The Indian Psyche’s languor won,
    And, musing, breathed primeval balm
    From Edens ere yet over-run;
    Marvelling mild if mortal twice,
    Here and hereafter, touch a Paradise.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing,
    Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
    So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another,
    Only a look and a voice; then darkness again and a silence.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)
