Blu Blood Managing Director and show promoter, Osman Osman.
“It is astonishing to see SANAM’s rise to fame over the past few years. When we hosted them in SA in 2016 they were sitting on around 650’000 subscribers on YouTube, it’s now a staggering 6.1 million subscribers and growing, We are very proud to be associated with the band and to bring world-class entertainment to our loyal patrons.”
Above all, the band rose to fame after composing renditions of classic Bollywood hit songs. Songs they had grown up listening to. They uploaded them to YouTube and they have since recorded and performed songs in Hindi, English, Spanish and Gurarati. Songs such as Main Hoon which was featured in the Hollywood blockbuster, The Amazing Spiderman 2 and which received rave reviews across its multi-language theatre release in India.
Furthermore, they are certisnly YouTube India’s most followed independent music channel and India’s most successful digital artists. Their music video for Gulabi Aankhen has a staggering 111 million views alone.
Front man, Sanam Puri who shares the limelight with Samar Puri (lead guitar, vocals), Venky S (bass) and Keshav Dhanrai (drums), shares his thoughts,
“We were never in it for the fame or where this would take us. The band wanted a place to share our videos with our friends. The industry and to revive these songs that we had such a special connection to. Bridge the gap between these songs and today’s generations. We didn’t have enough money to hire professional teams to shoot and edit our videos so we learnt how to do it ourselves.”
Above all, humble about their fame. The band describes their sound as refreshingly different. A mix of contemporary pop rock with their distinct blend of Omani and Indian musicians. The band’s frontman, Sanam Puri, is the voice of Bollywood chart busters Dhat Teri Ki (‘Gori Tere Pvaar Mein) and Ishq Bulaava (‘Hasee Toh Phasee’). Similarly, the band has released 5 albums to date and other original singles, seems like many of which have enjoyed number 1 spots on IndiPop charts and trending playlists.
“We don’t limit ourselves to one style of music. Each of us has different musical inspirations and the blend of all our styles is evident in the music we create.”
