Homuragama and are currently working on their album to released sometime this year. “We are very excited for this gig, because it’s probably the first of its kind. We’re putting a lot of effort into this. Recording an album, organising a gig, work, exams..so much to handle, but we know we can pull it off, if the Rock Music lovers of the city are on our side! See you all at the show!” says Swarnabha Gupta, the sitarist of the band.
