Indicus is the coming together of an eclectic set of musicians, veterans in their own genres of music. The compositions have a strong base in Hindustani Classical music that reach out and create a unique blend of Jazz and Electronica music.

With Indicus, various genres melt into one entity. Every school of thought retains its character, but when it interacts with elements from other rich elements, the outcome is quite unexpected, fresh and radical.

The result is an unheard-of, single entity that maintains the authenticity of ancient Indian philosophies and presents them in the most organic, contemporary sound. The Progressive Sufi Collective brings forth to the world, beatific philosophies of the mystics and saints of the Indian sub-continent.

The band takes the priceless ancient Indian philosophies and breathes life into them in this modern-day context. Indicus takes poetry by the Mystics and the Sufis of the yester-years, composes them anew. Through their songs, Indicus brings forth the essence of the philosophies of the Mystics for today’s audiences.

The initiative has been the result of not just one, but several people who have come together to pursue their passion, materialise their vision, and realise their dreams.

A visionary, a perceptive composer and a singer par excellence.
A culmination of true talent and a fantastic idea has resulted in creating Indicus, the band - a movement towards better music.
