2) About Takar Nabam :
Takar Nabam is a guitarist, singer songwriter, composer. Born in Doimukh, Arunachal Pradesh, India. At the age of 11, after having shifted his base to New Delhi to pursue his schooling and college, Takar was gifted his first guitar, on the condition that he could not let his academics take a back seat. So began his love story of fretting around regularly, something he religiously follows to this day.
After having dominated the Delhi Inter-school and inter-college scene, Takar wanted to take his music to a more professional dimension.
In 2012-2013, he had attended two semesters at Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music, where he received a diploma in Music performance. Also during this time he had opened up to singing, composing and writing lyrics.
Apart from performing his music, Takar has also performed with notable artists/bands like Rudy Wallang (Soulmate), Yesterdrive, Nandini Srikar, to name a few.
Takar released his debut album, Same Sky, in early 2016, which is more driven towards a mellow, singer songwriter, acoustic sound.
His second album 'This Home, That Home' will be launched on 30th March, 2018 on various online platforms. Sonically, there's a significant departure from 'Same Sky', the sound is primarily rock, with elements of soul, pop, electronic music.
