Founded in 1999, in Lucknow, Talaash make the most intimate music. The voices of Aneeta, Rahul and Sanjay are the perfect blend together, adorned by only light, rhythmic acoustic guitar, sometimes backed up with some light pre recorded percussions.
The music of Talaash takes the audience beyond the realm of listening. The music forces one to imagine, and walk around in a world where imagination weds cherished memories. Squashing all limits the heart refuses to respect the difference between the real and the illusion. Finally, the mind and the soul are left searching... trying to recollect when it crossed over, when it moved on, where the senses lost themselves? Talaash...the search.
The Band is driven by its quest for bringing to life the long lost joy of listening to honest music. The songs have simple and expressive lyrics carefully put to music, many a times reflecting the innermost, even secret nuances of poetic creation....
Their songs are profound, a complete, meaningful statement.
