AGNEE is one of the most dynamic and widely appreciated music bands in India. It is the country’s most loved Rock Band with over 50 million views on YouTube and over 5 lakh likes on Facebook. Both hugely popular and critically acclaimed, Agnee is known for its hummable tunes, live wire performances and deeply-rooted Indian sound - with rock songs inspired by Kabir's poetry, Vedic and Carnatic classical music.
Agnee has won prestigious awards such as MTV Video Music Award, GIMA Award, Spikes Asia Award and Goofiest 2013. The band has also been featured on MTV Unplugged and The Dewarists music TV series. Since the release of the debut album "Agnee" in May 2007, we have released more than 50 songs and used an Internet-based free distribution model to gather a large following in the rock music circuit.
Agnee's music is a collective of individual styles of composing and performing: Koco with his Classic Rock, Blues and Indian influences, Mohan with his Carnatic and Hindustani Classical ascendancy, along with Hrishikesh on drums and Chirayu on bass.
