MAP is a joyride through a seamless confluence of floating melodies and inspired lyricism. It POPs with the rock, the roll, the blues and the soul…and everything in between. Exuberant yet minimalistic, subtle yet significant – here, music plays the storyteller.
The band came together in 2011, when singer-songwriter Manta Sidhu set out to look for musicians, to bring to life the songs she had been writing. Spirited, spontaneous and rewarding all at once; the first few rehearsals and some well-received live performances, soon had the MAP bandwagon in top gear.
Featuring Jishnu Banerjee on guitar, Rahul Rai on bass, Shivam Khare on keys and Reuben Narain on drums - MAP released its debut album 'Rear View' with record label Times Music in July 2013. Witty, vivacious, sombre, surreal – the album is a carefree depiction of music that speaks in many simple ways and in many different hues.
Presently, the band is gearing up to release a bunch of singles.
