Ritviz Trained in Hindustani classical music, Ritviz Srivastava is a YouTube sensation with his songs becoming instant hits ever since he first found fame with his track Udd Gaye, a unique fusion of Indian and electronica that turned into a party anthem for the millennial generation. Since then, Ritviz has proved he’s no one-hit wonder with popular songs like ‘Barso’, ‘Jeet’, ‘Sage’ and ‘Liggi’ among others. Relax and enjoy the chilled-out hits from Ritviz at Tech2 Innovate this weekend. Indian Ocean You can call them a protest band if you like but the deep, earthy voices and raga-meets-rock songs by Indian Ocean revolutionized the genre and gave audiences a worthy alternative to Bollywood and Western rock bands. Through changing group members to appearing sporadically in Bollywood, mainly in Anurag Kashyap movies, the band is one of the most well-known names in the alternative rock space today. Hear them once and be their fan forever.
