Join a musical evening to witness the powerful performance by Kapow!. Their songwriting is musically and lyrically diverse, ranging from pop-rock ballads to eclectic sci-fi inspired tracks. Their first album is a rollercoaster of musical genres, and they made history as the first Indian band to embrace drag culture during their album launch, promoting awareness and learning. KAPOW! also released "Sab Sunliya," their first Hindi song, which became their most streamed track after a successful two-month marketing campaign. This led to a full Hindi-rock album with songs like "Kaali Billi'' and "Bhed Chaal." Known for its engaging content, Kapow! has created a cult-like following and has been extensively featured in news publications, radio, TV, and other media worldwide.
