Faridkot recently released a new track titled, Baithe Baithe, which is all about capturing the feelings of living in the lockdown. The very different kind of emotions that one goes through: listlessness, little joys, little sorrows, frustrations etc. It shows how we’re coping and learning to live in this suspended reality which is almost an endless loop.
How the lockdown has shown that emotions don't have meaning if you have no one to share them with. And even though we can't meet in these times, letting people know that we’re thinking about them matters. Through this song we want to send people happy vibes in these times of confusion and tension. This is a song for everyone locked in by themselves, a song for everyone who is away from loved ones, a song about just taking things one day at a time.
In this song Faridkot have collaborated with their friend and well know actor Mrinal Dutt.
Faridkot was formed in 2008 when Inderjeet Singh (IP) and Rajarshi Sanyal came together to make some fun and exciting original music. 10 years and 2 albums later, namely, Ek and Phir Se?, Faridkot have performed over 500 shows alongside all the biggest names in the country and swayed audiences across the country. They call their genre Confused Pop and have been hailed as one of the foremost original Hindi pop-rock bands in the country (with hits such as Laila, Haal e Dil, Madho).

Those of you who have been around from the 1960's through the 1990's will remember the vibrant live music scene in almost every starred hotel in India. Those were the days when you walked into a nightclub like 'Rendezvous' at The Taj Mahal hotel and 'Supper Club' at the Oberoi Sheraton in Mumbai to see curtains going up on a band that was the prime focus of these outlets. Every seat in these restaurants allowed an unobstructed view of the band that performed every night on resident contracts. Today all this has disappeared thanks to some ridiculously high entertainment taxes on live music. Today, non off these hotels have complete bands playing save for a few that feature small duos or solo singers. The Lodhi in New Delhi, recently listed among the world's best hotels, decided to step in and rewind to the good old days. They got Goa's premier jazz quartet 'Jazz Junction' to move to Delhi on a resident contract and the decision has paid off in terms of footfalls generated by the band. Jazz Junction featuring singer Daniella Rodrigues, pianist Tony Dias,
bassist Colin D'Cruz and drummer Angelo Colasco began playing at The Lodhi in June 2018. Four months into the contract the band generated a sizeable following, with quite a few high profile guests choosing to celebrate their special occasion at the Elan bar where the band performs. Against all odds the rewind option proved to be a huge success and hopefully other properties around the country takes the cue to trigger a whole new revival of live music.
