This is a classic conundrum for Asian weddings! We have a variety of different options that would suit any type of theme or idea you may have, from solo violinists or harpists, to live bands or DJs.
We often find that a live band for the mehndi/sangeet night works well. The band will entertain your guests with a variety of new and old songs in an interactive and engaging way. This is also a good time for family games such as ‘antakshri.’ You can always add a small DJ if you want to end the night on more of a high. If you’re planning on having a Saanji, we specialise in traditional Gujarati Garba and Dandiya.
In our experience, a small instrumental band works really well during drinks receptions/canapé events at weddings. You might want to hear our Bollywood Jazz instrumental band, which is led by a saxophonist and includes an electric piano and small drum kit. Alternatively, have a think about solo musicians, such as a pianist or violinist. If you want more of a traditional sound, how about a tabla and sitar duo, or a tabla, bansuri and sitar trio?
Depending on your day’s events, we can offer a variety of options that would dovetail with how you want your special day to go. If you are having your wedding ceremony in the morning followed by a reception, you could have a DJ to play background music during the wedding ceremony and then to get the party started for the evening reception!
