Having such an artist is nothing but a privilege for us.
ZIKRR is a Sufi-Rock band by choice, we draw our inspiration from varied aspects of the aforementioned musical genres mixing it with a hint of Bollywood to create a sound which separates us from the rest. We aim to mix both 'Divinity' and 'Groove' to give our listeners an unforgettable experience and Hence our motto, 'Music Jiska Zikrr Ho!'. The main focus is on making music which appeals to both the ‘Almighty’ and Man alike. We combine ‘Divinity’ and ‘Groove’ to make a style of music powerful enough to make feet move and hands to rise. We try and create a melodious yet grungy sound inspired from Hard Rock, Jazz, Blues & Pop immersed in lyrically strong ‘Sufiana’ music. Our sound includes intensively foot tapping grooves, raging Guitar solos, Heavy Bass and Drums and the odd instrumental solo thrown into the Mix.
