Gig Pix: Aghor, Aloft Whitefield

As a part of their ‘100 days of music’ celebration, the Aloft Hotel at Whitefield had organized an evening of music featuring the fusion band-  Aghor. This was the first time I was seeing this band. Whatever I read online said that this is a five-piece band, but only three people played that evening. Their music was a mix of jazz, funk, hindustani, sufi and flamenco. Despite having recorded drumbeats (which I really despise in live gigs), the band was fairly tight. But there's only so much one can do without a drummer to keep the beat going. It puts too much pressure on the bass player to keep the beat instead of focussing on pulling off some good bass riffs. Here are some pictures from the gig.
