About Wairingi

The strings that bring the soul to life. The sound that thrills the heart into ecstasy… Derived from the Maori language of New Zealand, Wairingior the Violin, is a state rock instrumental band that thrives on creating novel and innovative music from existing melodies. Thecore sound of the band is violin, accompanied by drums, bass and guitar. Years ago, Biswadeep Biswas, an accomplished violinist with myriad experience in the Indian music environment, dreamt of forming a unique group that will bring talents across instruments to create music, which will be at the same time foot-tapping, as well as soulful. With the vison to make music for all and to forge a distinctive sound of their own, Biswajeet, with three others, formed Wairingi in June 2017. Although based out of Kolkata, Wairingi is as national as it gets…in spirit, in sound, transcending geography, religion, race andage. Wairingi’s genre? Let’s just say the sky is the limit…from retro to Bollywood, to popular music to golden oldies, to alternative rock to progressive, Wairingi has a sound for all. The group, with its mix of instrumental expertise, brings innovation to the oft heard tunes that are complete audience delight. In just three months and one score later, Wairingi has inched into the hearts of its listeners. A deluge of admiration has come its way in the form of ‘on the spot’ revelry as well as social media appreciations. Encouraged and humbled by the adulation showered, Wairingi aspires to give its audience and listeners music that they would keep closer to their hearts.
