About Indian Ocean

The members of Indian Ocean are regarded as the pioneer of fusion rock music in India. The band was formed in 1990 by Rahul Ram, Asheem Chakravarty, Sushmit Sen and Amit Kilam. The lineup remained the same till 2009 when Asheem died. Tuheen Chakravorty and Himanshu Joshi later joined the outfit as replacements.

About the Artists

The name Indian Ocean was suggested by Sushmit's father. Sushmit sold his electric guitar back then to raise money for recording a demo for the band. A year later, they released their first album which sold over 40,000 copies in a year. The highest number sold by any band at that time. 

The band had some lineup changes, its members faced financial problems but their passion for music kept them going against all odds.

Since 2010, the band has worked independent of any record labels. Their album 16/330 Khajoor Road was released online for free. The main reason for this move was their fallout with record companies over contracts and copyright issues. 

The band is also a part of the world's first music personalisation initiative called DRP. Their tracks Kandisa and Ma Rewa were featured in 2014 in Rolling Stone's 25 Greatest Indian Rock Songs of the last 25 years.
