Parvaaz to start work on new material at the end of the year

MUMBAI: Members of Bangalore-based rock band Parvaaz will start work on a new record by the end of this year, confirmed bassist Fidel D’Souza. The band will perform at Jagriti Theatre in Bangalore on 23 July, as a part of the live shoot for an upcoming documentary called ‘Transitions’. D’Souza said that after the shoot, the band members will take a break, and get back in a few months to perform and start work on new material.

“Right now, our focus is on the upcoming live concert that is being shot for the ‘Transitions’ documentary; something we are extremely excited about. Then, all of us are going to take a break, go on a holiday, go back home. Then, we come back together by the end of September, and we will play some gigs. Soon after, we will start working on new material,” he said.

The band’s upcoming performance at Jagriti Theatre will be a live audio and video recording, showcasing the various musical transitions during a live show. The recording will be released in the form of a documentary or concert DVD. Speaking about the set-list for the concert D’Souza said, “We will play select old material; obviously tracks from ‘Baran’, very few tracks from ‘Behosh’ and a new track ‘Colour White’, along with some others.”

The live recording will be directed by Gokul Chakravarthy, marking the band’s second collaborative attempt with the director. Parvaaz previously worked with Chakravarthy on the video for ‘Colour White.’ The video has been shot using an iPhone, promoting Yogurt Studio, which is an initiative by Yogurt Labs that is dedicated to experiment and promote smartphones for producing mainstream videos.

The recording of ‘Transitions’ will also feature Mithun Bhat as the Director of Photography. Bhat directed the music video for the band’s earlier track ‘Beparwah’. The video has been ranked third on Pepsi MTV Indies’ list of 10 best music videos.

Parvaaz consists of D’Souza, Khalid Ahamed (vocals, guitars), Kashif Iqbal (guitar, vocals) and Sachin Banandur (drums, percussions).
