Ankur Tewari is a storyteller. He has spent the better part of his life discovering different mediums to share his tales. At times his stories find their way through his music; at others, through his films. Tewari’s songs are simple and evocative; they come from an honest and at times vulnerable space, which makes them easy to form an instant connection with. He plays with his band The Ghalat Family, who he has been travelling across India playing at major music festivals and locales over the past eight years. With a loyal fan base that has been steadily growing, their journey has only gotten more impressive and exciting over time. Highlights have included opening for world-renowned artists like Raul Midon, Fink and Norah Jones.

Ankur & The Ghalat Family comprises Sidd Coutto, Johan Pais, Gaurav Gupta, Vivaan Kapoor and Tewari, creating what they best describe as Urdu and Hindi easy acoustic folk rock ballads. The band is widely regarded as one of the most innovative bands in Hindi rock.
