Indian Standard Time

What would have happened if Bob Marley had spent time soaking in the musical traditions of Delhi? Or if Canadian rock legends Rush fell in love with the ancient traditions of ghazal and light classical Indian music? Enter Indian Standard Time! Indian Standard Time (IST) is an electrifying collective of musicians from Canada, India, Malaysia and the UK, all teaching and working at the Naad Centre for the Performing and Visual Arts in Surrey, BC, Canada, in the heart of the largest Punjabi community outside of India. IST dances with North Indian classical traditions and yet defies description — an alt/jam/prog/funk/reggae/Indian fusion band creating a live experience unlike any other! IST play local festivals and concerts in the Vancouver area. Follow Indian Standard Time on Facebook and Twitter.
