“Music is the universal language of
mankind,” said Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, once upon a time…
And it is this language that brought ‘Rishi Inc.’ to life. Rishi,
Ritesh, Santa, Tarit, Anugrah & Gautam – Six musicians who could
hear nothing but the sound of music and speak nothing but the
language of melody – were brought together by their love for
It all began just shy of a year…emerging from different
spheres of life, their love and passion for music tied them
together and the outcome that we have today is 'Rishi Inc.' - a
'rhythm emerging from perfect harmony between a man and his
Music may mean differently to different people…! But for them,
music is all about bringing out the serenity, purity and
authenticity of one’s being, with a slight touch of novelty. And
while living in the most diversified nation, India, what could
be better than bringing out the very serenity, purity and
authenticity of our motherland.
Starting from their original contemporary numbers to Indian
traditional folk, ‘Rishi Inc.’ and its music is a perfect
amalgamation of our cultural and modern India.
India has a lot to give to the world, even if it is her
music! And this is exactly what ‘Rishi Inc.’ believes in;
nurturing the true beauty of India and presenting it to the
world in an all-new different style.
Recognizing the soul of India and then beautifully fuse it
with the str ings of the ‘jazz’, that is what ‘Rishi Inc.’ is
Very Indian at heart, but modern in their approach, these
new-age musicians know what chord to strike to penetrate
straight into the heart of everyone and sustain its blissful
presence forever. Needless to say, be it the generation of the
21st century or their parents! In a nutshell, ‘R ishi Inc.’s
music is for one and for all.
Though Rishi and his like minded musical friends started
walking on their respective paths of music during the early
years of their life , they were brought together in Aug’ 2010 to
form today’s ‘Rishi Inc.’
It all began when Rishi met Santa during his graduation days.
Both shared each other’s passion & enthusiasm for music, while
Rishi knew what keys to strike to bring out the perfect melody
from his Piano, Santa was the man with a golden voice to
translate and give life to the deep thoughts of ‘Rishi Inc’
compositions . As wonderful as the combination could be,
together they fulfilled their commitments to
music by creating some soulful compositions.
Later, the duo was joined by Tarit, an expert in catching
beats and flowing them out through his tabla. The trio joined
hands, and created music very different from ordinary. Their
eclectic production was further beautified by the introduction
of Ritesh, whose mesmerizing talent with the flute brought a
different feel to the entire package. The whole package could
not finally be attained without the backbone of the whole band
i.e the Drums & Base section by Gautam & Anugrah respectively
who threw in their skills at the rhythm section. This led to the
band attaining equilibrium, with three members from western
classical and three from Indian classical background putting
their heart & soul together.
There after, finally Rishi Inc. was a complete musical
venture that was ready to take on the world with their music!
