Hailing from beautiful Shillong in Meghalaya is one of India’s most recognized and loved blues bands, Soulmate. Formed in 2003 by lead guitarist-vocalist Rudy Wallang and singer-guitarist Tipriti Kharbangar aka Tips, the group’s music is flowing with splendid songwriting inspired by the blues as well as rock, soul and funk elements too.
Over the years, the band has played all across the country and even toured internationally. During that time, they’ve also released four albums. While Soulmate has had a whole host of musicians fill in for their rhythm section, lately those roles have been occupied by drummer Vincent Tariang and bassist Leon Wallang.
