The pop rock quartet, Fame The Band (FTB), is all set to perform at Nouvelle Prague, held in Staropramen Brewery in the heart of Prague. It is the first ever music showcasing festival in Czech Republic with the primary focus of hosting bands from across the globe. From participating in Battle Rock VI in Tura in 2013 to winning Mood Indigo Livewire in IIT in Mumbai last year, Mikkimra Shira (guitars), Mark Shira (drums), Tengsam Momin (bass) and Fame Sangma (vocals) are really thrilled to showcase their work on an international platform.
FTB has won over music lovers at events such as The Ahaia Winter Festival (2013 and 2015), The ‘Songs and Dances of the North East Festival’, Delhi (2015) and The Hornbill International Music Festival and Rock Contest, Kohima (2015), where the band bagged The Best Potential Band, Strawberry Fields XX, National Law School, Bangalore (2016), Recovery Friday at Cloud9 Shillong, Quick Bites-Karaoke Lounge, Tura and many others.
“The experience at Mood Indigo Livewire was amazing. The crowd was awesome and we really felt connected to them especially during the finals. They were very generous with their response and this being the biggest crowd that we have played for, we really appreciate the fact that they were cheering for us throughout our performance. We only wish that we could have had more time to perform for such a fantastic crowd”, says Fame N. Sangma.

Having created a great camaraderie amongst themselves since childhood, growing up in Tura, West Garo Hills, these young musicians believe that there is nothing that can stop them from achieving their dreams.
