Kendraka is an attempt to capture the true change of shades of emotions one experiences through the journey in life. Kendraka promises an experience of the confluence of the different cultural influences (Hindustani & Carnatic classical music, hardcore rural folk of West Bengal, of that of Purulia and Bankura, the urban folk of Kolkata, Jazz, Rock, Blues, RnB, Afro - Brazilian and even integrating Indian Classical dance form-Bharatanatyam) set to the backdrop of the modern complex urban thematic metamorphosis with emphasis on spontaneity and improvisation.

Debut album "Tatahstu" (Blue Frog Records, Dec 2012); Second album "The Candy Album" (Amarrass Records, Feb 2012)
