Rave iBand is Asia’s first band to use only smartphones and tablets
Armed with nothing but smartphones and tablets (the band has told us we’re unable to actually name said ‘products’ so just use your imaginations), Asia’s first iBand have started to take the internet by storm. Rave iBand as they are so aptly called, have taken on one of India’s most popular Bollywood songs ‘Shelia Ki Jawani’ and put on a Jazz Blues spin on it, and frankly what they have come up with is good – very good. The song works well despite the fact they were taking a huge chance by changing such a popular song and personally, I like it better than the ‘original’.
At the helm of Rave iBand, and on vocals is my good friend Riccha Paul (who sings using two smartphones), an aspiring singer who’s career is surely going to get fast tracked with the video below. The video itself currently stands at just over 18,000 views after just 4 days, and after being picked up by the local news sites around India, expect the views to keep increasing at a rapid rate. The rest of the band are also equipped with tablets, and in total the iBand uses 2 smartphones and 5 tablets (almost more tech than we have at Techin5!).
Either way, take a look at the video below and be sure to give them a thumbs up, and if you really like their music and would like to contact them, then just head over to the description in the YouTube Video!
