Nishant & PD
AntarDhvani (means sound of the soul) is a Delhi, India based Hindi Rock and Fusion band formed by Mukesh Singhmar, Sumeet Anand and Ravee Kulsari. The three of them got together in the early 2000s as members of Hans Raj College's music society, but it was 2007 when their musical association took a formal shape and was established as AntarDhvani.
AntarDhvani's music is an organic mix of elements from east and west. It has traces of western sound found in genres like Rock, Jazz, Blues as well as Indian sound ranging from Sargam, Alaap and Dhrupad based Tarana. A noted feature of all AntarDhvani's compositions is the literature that their lyrics bring with them.
AntarDhvani has performed at various prestigious platforms like Hans Raj College, FORE School of Management, SRCC, Mocha (Fever off the Record), Turquoise Cottage, One Boulevard Cafe, Maple Town and Country Club, Gurgaon, TGIP - Noida and Siri Fort Auditorium (Dil Ki Awaaz), Gyanetra (Law faculty Cultural Festival, DU), Prayas for children (An NGO), Campus Law Center, University of Delhi.
They have been featured on various TV, Radio, newspapers and magazines like NDTV India, Sahara, NDTV MetroNation, Sahara NCR, CNEB, Pragya TV, Living India, BIG FM, Radio ONE, Radio Mirchi, MetroNow, Halabol Voices, Mail Today, The Statesman, The Viewspaper and The New Global Indian.
Early years & coming together as AntarDhvani (2001 to 2007)
The story of AntarDhvani so far can be divided into three phases, ‘Hansraj College Days’ (2000-2004), ‘The Building Phase’ (2004-2007) & ‘The Coming Together of Working Professionals’ (2007-present).
Hansraj College’s famous Lovers Point (popularly known as L.P.) is the place where Mukesh and Sumeet, two of the three founder members of AntarDhvani met. That time though, they had no idea how their musical association will shape up with time. Together they won numerous college competitions, sang for the themselves, sang for all, but with college this musical journey was also more or less over.
In late 2007 however, while studying law, Mukesh met a poet in Nishant. One usual evening, amidst guitar strumming and rounds of tea at the law faculty campus, Nishant wrote first of his songs, which went on to become a gem in AntarDhvani’s musical literature. With ‘Socha Na Tha’ it was time to formalize the affairs…AntarDhvani was born.
Mukesh, Sumeet and Ravee started jamming together again and many AntarDhvani songs including 'Bole Allah Bole Ram', 'Nasha' and 'Campus Song' were composed during the next two years, from 2007 to 2009.
Current line-up & Original Compositions (2007 to present)
It all started with a college performance at Hans Raj College, New Delhi  and few years since, AntarDhvani has evolved into a group of working professionals who double up as passionate musicians. With management graduates, lawyers and chartered accountants, the group’s portfolio is as diverse as their music.
The current line up has Mukesh Singhmar on Bass, Sumeet Anand on Vocals, Ravee Kulsari on Guitars and Gilly on Drums & Percussions. The band currently has over 15 original compositions spanning across genre ranging from HindRock to Indo-Western Fusion.
