Ikhtiyar The Band

A bunch of young music enthusiasts, they are a five member group that goes by the name "Ikhtiyar", which implies authority. They knew each other as schoolmates and eventually they were brought together by their shared passion for music and their collective visions in the year 2014. After several experimental sessions, they finally found their niche when they decided to dig into the genres of retro, soft-rock and Indo-Western music. Having done more than 20 gigs as of now in a number of places including two very successful ones at "Pho King" and "Throttle Shrottle" that are based in Delhi NCR, Ikhtiyar is truly blessed with both Western and Classical musicians who wouldn't let the other get the upper hand and thus the result is a balanced fusion. of both 'the Taal and the Tonic'.
