Swiggy SteppinOut is proud to present Farhan Akhtar`s Echoes India Tour at antiSocial, Mumbai, where he will be performing songs from his English album, Echoes. Farhan has written and recorded his debut album. Echoes is the album of his life, a set of classic-sounding, self-written songs that reflect a childhood steeped in the greats of both Indian music, Kishore Kumar, musician Ravi Shankar and of western rock and pop: The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, David Bowie. Recorded in Milan, the rich, melodic album was produced by Grammy-winning producer Tommaso Colliva (Franz Ferdinand, Jesus and Mary Chain, Muse).
Farhan has made music before now – not least playing the part of the frontman of a rock band in the critically acclaimed film Rock On!! (2008) – but he’s been keen to record his own album for a long time. Yet for years, his other interests – and life – got in the way. And then, he admits with the candor typical of his emotionally honest lyrics, a couple of years ago life got in the way, but in a different manner.
From this he conceived a different kind of touring.
Explaining the album’s title, he notes that, “Echoes. It’s about chapters in my life and voices in my head that have influenced the writing. All of us have our personal journeys through life, through love. We struggle at times to make sense of our emotions and of the world around us. So here I am, speaking as honestly as I can about my journey.”
