Agnee is an Indian rock band, and the first to have seen a mainstream release. The band's debut album "Agnee" was released on May 15, 2007 on SONY BMG. Since then, they have released many singles using the free distributable medium of the World Wide Web and gained a cult following in the rock music crazy circles of Mumbai and Pune.
Agnee was formed in 2006 in BHILAI, and soon signed by Sony BMG. Agnee is one of very few Indian rock bands to have signed a major label record deal.
Agnee's music is a collective of individual styles of composing and performing: Koco with his Classic rock, Pop and Indian influences and Mohan with his Carnatic and Hindustani classical influences. Agnee's music showcases all of the above and the compositions in the first album vary in style accordingly. The songs move in genre from Folk rock and Pop-Rock to straight up Pop, and incorporate elements of Funk, Jazz and Carnatic music as well.
K. Mohan - Vocals
The lead vocalist of the band, Mohan's primary musical instrument is the Mridangam.
He's from a family of Carnatic classical musicians, so music's pretty much a way of life! Mohan's forte is the way he manages to combine his understanding of melody and rhythm together to create his own unique style, both in compositions as well as on stage.
Koco - Guitars
The lead guitarist of the band, Koco's sound is one that has inspired musicians all over India to take up the guitar. He's been traditionally known for his rock and blues sound, combined with a core Indian sensibility and understanding. Now he incorporates various other styles of playing, including finger picking, jazz, funk and a lot of acoustic playing with equal panache, giving the band a wider musical range. Koco also endorses Paul Reed Smith Guitars.
