About Aabha

An energetic live performer, singer & songwriter, Aabha Hanjura, as a popular Sufi Folk Artiste, has been winning hearts at over 100 successful concerts across India, since the year 2005. Hailing from Kashmir, Aabha had the zeal and enthusiasm of creating her own world of music. Realizing an alarming awareness of music and boiling musical talents across India, Aabha auditioned for the greatest musical opportunity, The Indian Idol, and went a long way through it by being one of the youngest finalists on the show.

She founded her Band Sufistication as a new Avatar of Sufi music that encompasses all the original elements of ancient Sufi & Folk ethnicity. On a quest to take the sounds of Kashmir to a larger audience, Aabha is passionate about popularising the lesser known aspect of Kashmir- It's Music! She is currently cutting an album called Aabha Hanjura & The Sound Of Kashmir.

Aabha has been experimenting, exploring and welding classic folk music with contemporary sounds. Along with her band Sufistication, & tries to push the boundaries and bend rules, the result of which is an amalgamation of blues, jazz, soft rock, reggae and dubstep with folk music. Aabha's love & passion for the music of her land-Kashmir led her to innovate on her LIVE sound as well & hence her live project features a never heard before unique & one of it's kind musical ensemble that features authentic Kashmiri instruments like Rabab,Kashmiri Saarangi & the percussions of Kashmir like ,Tumbaknari that creates a sound that is truly her's.

    Quick Facts

    Full Name: Yadhunandan aka DrummachariOccupation: Drums

    Sufistification to me is

    Playing for Sufistication is a whole new experience for me as it has opened me to a completely new genre which is so fresh and divine. It has opened me to another dimension where you need to play grooves with lots of feel. It was a challenge initially for me because my initial influences are metal and rock. Getting to know the compositions and talking about it with the band and practising it has made it very helpful for me.

    Favourite Song

    One is roshay and the other is lalwakh. Both these songs are very groovy. I love playing and experimenting different styles. Roshay has a very swingy groove and lalwakh has more of a drum and bass groove.
