Leaving Home - The Life and Music of Indian Ocean

It’s difficult to do this documentary justice in a couple of lines.

I can only strongly recommend this to all music lovers, and especially for Indian music enthusiasts. But it’s not restricted to only them. It’s a first of its kind, made on Indian soil, and more reason to patronise such works of art and music. It offers a real perspective on the difficulties of a budding band in India, since the 1990s. The members share their philosophy and ethics in forming their band and in the music they choose to play, building upon their innate passion for music and for making a difference through it for the community. Exceptionally moving. It’ll never be the same again.

[If you like to patronise such independent movies/documentaries, Dingora could only be of help. It surely is my kind of movie community, and enjoyed the straightforward and simple experience it offered. But mild warning, it requires using Microsofts Silverlight player to view movies.]
