GANGTOK, Sept 4 – Frontman of metal band ‘Girish n the Chronicles’, Girish Pradhan has won the ‘Yamaha Asian Beats, 2011’ Rock music competition.
The win has earned Girish the title of the ‘best vocalist in the country’ in the Rock genre.
In July this year, Girish and his band made a path-breaking performance at the Montenegro International Suncane Skale Festival in Europe. The competition was held at the Kyra MP Theatre in Bangalore on August 27.
The top bands of each zone met at Bangalore’s Kyra MP theatre and Pradhan was declared the best vocalist in the All- India Finals. With this, he has qualified for the international rounds which are scheduled to be held in Seoul in South Korea on November 14.
A Hong Kong-based company has signed a seven-year contract with the 24-year-old rocker from Sikkim to promote him in the rock circuits in Europe of which Montenegro Rock Festival is a part.
When Pradhan leaves for Europe in mid-October, he will be the greatest Rock export from Sikkim and for that matter the whole sub-continent, rock music followers said here.
