Kapaachii - a multi-genre rock band from Calicut. Formed in late 2017. Ka-paa-chii broken down stands for 'Katha' 'Paatu' 'Chinta' which literally translates to 'Narrative' 'Melody' & 'Thoughts'. The keyboard player SanDy had a dream concept/vision before moving from the Tollywood industry in Chennai which was to form a music band in his hometown, which would set a professional benchmark, both musically and sonically. This idea blossomed and led him to meet Rijil, the bands lead guitarist and Adarsh, the band's metronome, who happens to be completing his music studies at A R Rahman's music conservatory. With the help of some mutual friends Rinesh joined the gang with his bass guitar and since, the journey has been great. The band has performed at various stages across Kerala and is growing and evolving gracefully. Their style, which is rooted in blues-based hard rock, has come to also incorporate elements of pop rock, metal idiom while indian in the most inevitable ways.
