This Sofar Delhi NCR show was to the nines! 

Sofar Delhi NCR’s ninth show was a show to remember and not just for one particular reason. The show was held at the picturesque Elma’s tea room inside the Good Earth’s showroom which was probably the most well-designed venue we have ever had a show at. Another this special about this show was the lineup:…

The Doppler Effect Created a Ripple that Refused to Die Down at Sofar

Formed in October 2012, The Doppler Effect is a band initiated to revive the lost glory of the “glam/classic rock ages and bring it up to date with a twist”, introducing elements of progressive rock and funk into the general sound.

After Eight(h) Sofar Sounds Show

So we at Sofar Delhi-NCR call ourselves Delhi-NCR for a reason and that became apparent with our second show in Gurugram, breaking the usual mould of South Delhi locations. Now that we are finally getting inclusive of the behemoth that is the Delhi NCR, we decided to embrace the not-so-good hot-humid weather at a cozy…

Creating Connections Between the Artist and the Audience

I’ve always admired artists that captivated their audiences to a level that when they go out to see them perform, they actually leave everything else behind for that short period of time and pay attention only to the music. I would be lying if I said that isn’t one of the things that I think…

My first Sofar show: sensational or sixational?

As a new entrant in the Sofar Sounds Delhi- NCR, I was stoked to be a part of the show as one of the crew members. My favorite part of the whole set-up was putting it all together, from the decor to making sure everything is in sync (pun intended)! There was so much thought put…

#KnowUs: Tanya Nath, City Leader

By Tanya Dubey. Tanya’s Sofar journey is one of many serendipitous happenings, all over the years. Imagine you’re walking back home, and you hear a band performing on the streets, or your neighborhood park. You follow the sound to see the band surrounded by people swaying to the music and you sway along. Back home, you end…

Second Innings at Sofar Sounds – Mahesh

The location for the gig was perfect as it was overlooking the Qutb Minar (my first time seeing it in real, if I might add!). With a short and snappy soundcheck, I got on stage right when the sun was setting. For a Bangalorean, the temperatures dropping to 12-13 degrees is not exactly “the usual”
