Blek is a 3-member power pop band from Mumbai, India comprising of Rishi Bradoo (Guitar/Vocals), Jared Juan Creado (Bass/Vocals) and Linford D'souza (Drums) formed in 2011.
The band broke on to the Indian indie circuit as one of the 5 winners of the Ray-Ban Never Hide Sounds, a nationwide talent hunt for best emerging Indian artists in 2011. The band released their debut EP “Hexes + Drama & Other Reasons for Evacuation” as a free download (available on ennui.BOMB Records: www.ennuidotbomb.com ) on 14th February 2012 and has since been one of the most buzzing acts on the Indian indie music circuit. Backed with super reviews for the EP from all quarters, Blek gigged extensively covering most of the country.

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
