Second Sight is an acoustic duo which was formed in late 2015, when Anusha and Pushkar met at Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music (SAM), and instantly connected personally and musically in their spontaneous jam sessions. It’s an interesting amalgamation - Anusha with her background in soul, jazz, a cappella and choral music, and Indian classical; and Pushkar deriving his inspiration from music ranging from electronica to blues and progressive rock. They incorporate all this with what they’ve learned from their professors at SAM, renowned musicians in their respective countries, and create a unique sound. They have already recorded their original compositions live, one of them featuring Sid Jacobs (renowned jazz guitarist and educator, USA). Seen exchanging guitars, ukuleles and synths when on stage, and weaving their voices with rich harmonies, Second Sight delivers a moving performance every time.
Second Sight has a versatile setup and have performed as a duo, a trio (with a percussionist) and as a full fledged band with a bassist and drummer as well.
In the short span since they started performing, they’ve played at various places in India, such as Tuning Fork, TARQ Gallery (through Sofar Sounds Mumbai) and Bluepot in Mumbai, Kaasha ki Aasha in Pondicherry, and Inko Centre in Chennai (through Sofar Sounds Chennai). Furthermore, Second Sight looks to incorporate other forms of art, such as poetry and dance, in their music, to make their performance a multifaceted experience.
