    This weekend, the Delhi-based band will go all out to prove they still rock

    Liven up your Saturday evening with Dr Palash Sen, the founder of Delhi-based band, Euphoria. Back in the city after five years, Sen says he has been busy recently shooting in Banaras for Sound Trek, a show on Fox Traveler. About the concert at Phoenix Market City, he asks us to expect “a lot of ‘Dhoom’ (referencing their first album, cut in Benaras in 1998) and fun,” begins the Bengali singer.
    Formed 26 years ago, Sen tells us the band “has seen a lot of hurdles and roadblocks, but we have always wanted to make people happy.” The singer is a fan of Tamil songs. “I am a big fan of Ilayaraja and A R Rahman. I have also heard Harris Jayaraj. When I sang Kadavule for D Imman, I struggled to get a hang of the language,” he shares. Talking about the changing trends in the music industry, Sen points out that India does not have a music industry, “we only have a film industry, which has music as part of it. When we started out, there was a ‘music scene’, which does not exist now. I hope this changes.” The singer has also signed two films—Shonda Namar Age, a Bengali movie with Rahul Bose and Rituparna Sengupta, and Aisa Yeh Jahan with Ira Dubey.

    At Phoenix Market City, tomorrow, from 6.30 pm onwards. Rs. 500 onwards. Details: eventjini.com
