Esha & Prakriti
We are an acoustic duo with an eclectic taste in music. Owing to our varied interests, we picked up stringed instruments and consequently joined our school band at the ages of 13 and 12 respectively. Later on, this extended to the next phase of our lives with us joining the music societies of our respective universities. Currently, Esha is pursuing law from Amity University, Noida and Prakriti is pursuing psychology from Delhi University. We have been playing music commercially since 2012. This started with open-mics and progressed to other venues and platforms. We have both been students of Gurgaon Music School; we gave rock school and trinity affiliated exams for vocal music, guitar and music theory during the same period of time. A few of our recorded songs are available on our soundcloud page: https://soundcloud.com/esha-prakriti
Our mix of influences includes but isn’t limited to John Mayer, Norah Jones, Damien Rice, Eric Clapton, Ben Howard, Sara Bareilles, Angus and Julia Stone, Bon Iver, Jayme Dee and Lana Del Rey. Our musical palette includes genres like indie, pop rock, jazz, blues and alternative rock. By drawing from our own unique brand of musical prowess, we try to cover songs while giving them a fresh look and an original sound.
