Its Otheo according to these rock-starlets
Till about two days back,their bands name was Kamphor. And then it hit us – it sounds like the water camper, the boys quickly scrambled around for something that was rock-solid,and not too fluid in nature. It had to have all the elements of rock,capture its existence,the theory behind,and so came about,Otheo. This five-member band of boys from Vivek High School with their new name got all set to rock the audience in their maiden performance at the Punjab Gold Cup. Its between two matches, smiles the drummer,Aseem Singh Halwarvi of Class VIII,who also enjoys the distinction of being one of the two drummers of the school. The other one is Class X, he says as his fellow budding rockers Harsh VS Thakur,Kunwarbir Singh,Pukhraj Singh Brar – all Class XI students and Mansher Singh Grover of Class VIII jump in. While Harshs the vocalist and accompanying guitarist,Kunwars the lead guitarist,Pukhrajs on base guitar and Manshers on the keyboards. Quiz them why they chose rock – its fun,and a creative expression. You can loosen up,enjoy the music,be yourself and above all,feel like a rockstar, they quip,looking dashing in their attire – traditional kurtas,jeans and turbans,courtesy the designer among them,Mansher.
Theyve all grown up on Deep Purple,played instruments they like,especially Kunwar who has all plans to move on to acoustic guitar. You need maturity,patience,experience to play the acoustic guitar…in fact all rock bands are now moving on to it, his young,energetic self is sticking to the electric version till he calms down. As for Mansher,it was a switch from the piano to keyboard. Well,we all wanted to perform on stage,and we all love rock,have friends who are rockstars and are already two compositions old, Harsh and the boys are following the league! Rock on!
