The band was formed in January 2008 by brothers’ Naresh and Paresh Kamath who felt they were missing out on the live gig action post Bombay Black!
The members of Hipnotribe are all heroes on their respective instruments. Kurt Peters is the prodigal drummer son of jazz legend Karl Peters. AbhijitNalani on keyboards is the guy behind most of the bollywood smash hits! He is also a master funker! SankarshanKini(Shanks) plays countless instruments (guitar, keyboards, flute, violin etc...!). Sanket Athale, also the youngest in the band, is the percussion guru or 'Tablaman' as he likes to be called. And with TejasviRaoon the mixer, the band has the kind of sound that confuses people into thinking that it could be a CD playing!
A unique mish-mash of every style out there! The band's songs derive from every kind of music that exists on urban individual's I pod.
