About the project

A touching song written for mothers, Light also aims to be an uplifting music video from The Manta Sidhu Ensemble.



About our video 'Light'


The video features the band’s original song, ‘Light’. It is like a lullaby -  hope for some, inspiration of others. The style that the ensemble showcases, is the first of its kind in the Indian singer-songwriter circuit. With a certain calmness, we want the video to evoke a sense of belonging in the audience and spread positivity and hope. The song in itself is about unconditional hope and fulfilling your dreams. 

Listen to the song here:



A little about The Manta Sidhu Ensemble



The Ensemble took shape as a collaboration between six exquisite musicians to perform songs written by singer-songwriter Manta Sidhu. We all have an experience of over 10 years as stage performers and studio artists - and have performed at various prestigious live acts over the years, in India and abroad.



Our journey to this point




Fro m mixing our songs at home to bootstrapping through our live acts, it has been quite a ride. As a band it is always ones purpose to compile a body of work that is your own. A tangible source of your work, your talent, your creativity, your efforts as a team – an album is a testimony to all of this – with a shelf life and no expiry date. And coming to team effort – we are proud of the fact that our debut EP was a DIY project. It was recorded and mixed at home, with our drummer Reuben Narain on the fore-front of everything. For mastering we sent it to Nagasaki Sounds in the US. Being a home-studio project, we are proud of how the EP has shaped and how it sounds. Creating a music video for a special song from our upcoming EP seems like the best next move. We are so excited! 

Why crowdfunding?

A crowdfunding campaign will give the audience a glimpse of what all goes into being an independent musician and what all goes into bringing our music to the audiences. This might be a solid way to generate awareness about the art forms and the life of an artist. Awareness might also make way for appreciation and finally, support. Since we've recorded this album at home, crowdfunding is the only way for us to reach the next level and make a global standard BIG music video.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 100000 in Audio Recording

Rs. 190000 in Video Shoot + Editing

Rs. 25000 in Travel + Miscellaneous

Rs. 35000 in Admin fees


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

The challenge is to keep writing and producing material that is unique, true to our vision, yet appreciable. The biggest risk as an independent artist is to not have the constant flow of funds. We need to be gigging and working on music all the time to keep alive the interests of venues, audiences and band members alike.

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

We belive our songs are easy-listening in style, with lush voice arrangements and memorable hooks that can keep people humming. The music surpasses all restrictions of age, gender or musical taste. This is a project that brings forward something that is unique. We are trying to attempt something different and, it is always a challenge to take up something that is considered experimental and unusual. And such projects need all the support that it can garner to be able to move forward and stay alive. So, we hope you will help us achieve this and we promise that the end product will be worth it!
