Terrible terrible news! Christmas was never so black. An hour or so back (2:15 pm), Asheem Chakravarty, singer and percussionist of our favourite band Indian Ocean,  passed away.

In october 2009, Asheem suffered a heart attack at the Doha airport on the last leg of Indian Ocean’s US and Middle East tour. And then he went into coma. In the last few days, he condition was better and there was news of him slowly recovering from coma. But it seems his condition was still critical. And nobody ever expected this. RIP.

And here is  what we will all miss….video from one of the last concerts where Asheem performed his famous Kandissa alaap. The video and audio quality is not good but those who know their music, well its Indian Ocean.

    RIP – Asheem Chakravarty, 52, was known to Indian Ocean fans as “the man with the golden voice.” He sang & played tabla simultaneously, a feat rare among percussionists. BTW, Indian Ocean’s soundtrack to 2004’s Black Friday is thrilling.

  2. its really a sad news for us
