Holiday – Hipnotribe


Formed in 2008 by brothers Naresh [bass] and Paresh Kamath [guitar, vocals], Hipnotribe is supported by Kurt Peters [drums], son of luminary bassist Karl Peters, Abhijit Nalani [keyboards], Sankarshan “Shanks” Kini [flute], and Sanket Athale [tabla]. Their offering here, “Holiday”, is a lean, fluid sound of hip-hop that has a tremendous crossover opportunity with the ethnic sounds of tabla and flute. No doubt, the band has discovered a new music identity and approach to conventional sounds, and relies on original hooks, but by twisting them with a no fuss sound and subtle instrumentation where the entry into, and exit from it occurs from one of the primary instruments featured, the flute. With no flash – either in vocals or in instrumentation – the approach here is of a simple style that is easy to understand.
