NATIVE TONGUE, a Garage Rock/ Power trio with a creative urge to write music of extremely high quality within a 3 piece set up as popularised by The Police, Kings X and Billy Sheehan’s rise, Talas.

The band consists of three obscure dreamers, Baba, Joel & Benhur, Scratching a brainwave from the artistry of acts such as India’s Thermal and a Quarter, gutsy Irish boys, Sting & U2, Commercial America’s major league folk, The Dave Matthews Band and Seattle Grunge Pioneers, Pearl Jam.

Other influences of the band are Green Day, Steely Dan , The Killers, Dire Straits, Van Halen, The Red Hot Chili Peppers , Jimi Hendrix , Jaco Pastorius, Charlie Parker , John Mayer and Mr.Big

With day job demands and attendance deficits, the band is trying its best to take the voice of the voiceless to the radio, through the Robin Hood belief system.

The band believes that poverty in India and globally is an issue that has to be dealt by this generation and the one coming behind.

Native Tongue’s baby is The Chai Biscuit Foundation, a motley crue fighting the case of underprivilleged children with a strategy tailor made for their basic needs.
