Srinagar: Battle of the Bands, a musical competition between 21 rock groups of Kashmir, finally ends here today.

This competition was Organised by the CRPF and Valley Youth Xpression. The two days rock festival kicked off on yesterday at indoor stadium Srinagar in which thirteen bands performed yesterday and the remaining performed on Thursday.

The participants at the event said that the objective of the festival was to divert attention of the people towards music, as the valley was in the past marred by violence.

A show organizer Mohammad Ashraf Khan told Agence India Press that as everybody knows that situation in this Kashmir is really bad. So music diverts people’s thinking and it’s a plus point for youth as they get an opportunity to improvise themselves and it also spreads awareness. Through music, we represent many things; we can change communities, so music has that power.

Local audience also praised the astounding performance of young enthusiasts and lauded the budding talent as the event took place for the second time in the region and the number of groups increased as compared to last year.

Speaking to mediapersons, a judge at the event, Bilal Ahmed told Agence India Press that the festival was aimed at providing a platform to the youngsters so as to bring forth their hidden talent.

“We have dynamic talent over here and in order to boost talent, we need to organise such events. We must organise these things often to encourage youngsters. You might have noticed performance of a class eight student, who played guitar as good as any other singer or musician, if we won’t give him a platform now then he won’t be able to enhance his talent,” said Ahmed.

During the ‘Battle of the Bands-2011’ various participants performed on various English and Sufi tracks. However, some students also performed on the songs from recently released Bollywood movie ‘Rockstar’ during the festival.

A winner of show was Sign band on the first position while as Xest on second and Naaz Band on third position. (AIP News)
