On talking about his band he said “It’s been a while since we have made anything together, as every one of us has got other projects to work on at this moment. But it’s about time to make the band’s comeback soon enough. The core members are mostly me and Anand Bhagat and a couple of more great talented artists too. We are trying to bring life into our projects. We make music like throwback from past like 70s or 80s way. Anand is really a great fantastic versatile percussionist. He has also studied in Africa and played with many African groups. We really gel in together and there is a lot I get to learn from him every time. We are trying to get more people for more raw basic sounds.''

They have been talking a lot about the current music scene in India right now. According to Saba it’s really fascinating environment today as Internet is ruling the world. “To reach out there is sort of difficult as lots of music and genres are already there. It was different earlier that you could go to PlantM and buy whatever album you want and listen to it till you can afford to buy another one. Everyone is exposed to music now.

"It’s just you do what you want to with individuality. Critics are everywhere, easy to say but competence is really important to bring that relevance. In fact Bollywood producers get tired of making the same thing again and again with all the stars. I am not going to really conceptualize this but it’s a common thing. Put money and do that again and again is what keeps happening. However, there are some Bollywood musicians who are really good, I respect them," said Imaad.
