DIBYO – DRUMS
Dibyo Jyoti Baruah (drums) thinks musicians today are rather conflicted. They have to play various kinds of music. They shift and adjust their style of playing, due to different reasons. “Its like a khichdi!!”, he jokes. He for instance listens to everything from Pop Music to Death Metal, plays western music and loka geet as well!! He had played with the renowed keyboardist- Late Nupur Bordoloi. He had been engaged in bands from Calcutta and Shilong. Currently he’s engaged in a fusion music project with a band called Suryansh.
