#SahejBakshi and his electronica are not unknown to the city. The musician, who performs under the stage name #DualistInquiry, was in #Shillong recently. In fact, it was a homecoming for this Goa-based artiste.


Bakshi had been performing in Shillong for years now, the first time being in 2011. After that he has been coming at least once every year.

“This city is unlike any other place in India. The audience here is genuinely there for music as the city has a long history of different forms of music. Now, people are opening up to electronica and enjoy it as they would enjoy rock music,” the 29-year-old musician told Sunday Shillong in an email interview.

Apart from music, the place’s natural beauty, clean air and #Jadoh stalls have always attracted Bakshi.

Originally from #Chandigarh, Bakshi recently moved to Goa after living in Delhi for nine years. Nature has deep impact on him and the musician wakes up early every morning to enjoy the serene beauty sitting in his studio. His two feline friends are always with him. “They sit in the studio when I work on my music. They are the best roommates,” he said.
