Peepal Tree :
Peepal Tree is a Bangalore based band. The band comprises Sujay Harthi on vocals, Tony Das on guitars, Praveen Biligiri on bass and Willy Demoz on drums and percussions. Their music can be described as Indian melodies sitting on funk grooves with overtones of electronica, and sung in Indian languages. This combination of elements makes for a very interesting new sound.
Each musician in the band brings a wealth of experience to this new project, having been part of some of the most successful bands from India.
In the later part of the day on July 15th of the year 2006 this bunch of high school graduates decided that they would form a band and make some music to aid their would be dreary engineering college lives. 6 Days later they play their first show at the Unwind center. In an environment of predominantly metal music, this original-rock act got the crowd and went on to play over a 100 gigs, and counting. This includes most of the major cities in South India, Mumbai and an independent festival in Reading, England.
The band took a shortl hiatus to explore their sound following the release of their first studio album called 'Design'. The band reformed with a new sound and a new direction. So YOU the one reading this, Listen to their music and make your own bloody back story. Watch them live and spread the Sound.
