Formed in early 2011, Ganesh Talkies is the dance music cousin of Bollywood via Indian indie. The Talkies blends alt-rock, reggae, ska and pop in a funky, twisted brew peppered with influences culled from cinema. The result is Bollywood's quirk, coolth and extreme kitsch meeting a dance-heavy ethos in the band's sound and live vibe. Like a movie plot, GT songs tell stories; stories that unfold collectively to make the whole picture. Big on drama, GT frequently slips into theatre couture on stage; its infectious live energy moulded into the night's theme.
The band has also won the ‘CONVERSE ORIGINAL BAND: 2012’ recently, the finals of which were held in Mumbai
