Anubhav Silas – a djent instrumental independent artist based in New Delhi

Anubhav Silas is a djent instrumental independent artist based in New Delhi, India. The artist finds music to be the best instrument for pouring out his feelings, emotions and reactions. His music is an amalgamation of the language of his heart and the technical intricacies of genres like djent, ambient, ambient clean music and progressive rock, through which it is expressed.

“Psalm 24” is my first original composition and is a musical ekphrasis of the same chapter from the Bible. It is a representation of my feelings, emotions and reactions to the different verses of the chapter. Psalm 24 is a chapter that is very near and dear to my heart. This is what I felt while reading it and turned it into an instrumental representation as for me, personally, music expresses where words fail. And the glory and majesty of Christ has left me speechless. Hence, here’s a speechless piece that expresses me.


Here is Anubhav Silas in a conversation with GOGO Magazine.

1) When did your journey as a musician begin?

Initially, I used to play the keyboard and that’s where I started. But as I started exploring, I realised that the guitar was my true calling. It felt like I was made to play the guitar and soon I started covering songs of various bands like Dream Theater. From there, I went on to become the lead guitarist of my school, St. Columba’s and won a lot of competitions during that time too. In 2020, I started making my own music and that’s how it has evolved over the years!

2) Which was your first song?

My first song was ‘Psalm 24’ which is an instrumental piece.

3) Which has been your most memorable live performance?

 It was in 2019 when I became the judge for the ‘Battle of the Bands’ at Amifest and had to perform for the judge showcase. That live performance was very memorable for me and the feeling that I experienced to be up there on that stage is unmatched.

4) Who has been your inspiration?

There are two people who have inspired me in a huge way. The first being my brother who’s an amazing keyboardist. He introduced me to a wide variety of genres and exposed my mind to different kinds of music. The second would be John Petrucci, who’s a guitarist at Dream Theater. His playing is very intricate and is filled with a lot of technicalities and skills. I used to play his solos to practice and that’s how my interest and mind for music expanded.

5) Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

If I talk about 5 years from now, I see myself as a solo artist only. However, if I get lucky, I might end up in a band, so you never know!

6) Which is your most preferred genre?

 My most preferred genre is ambient metal, but I like experimenting and playing around with different kinds of genres.

7) Tell us about your latest track.

“Psalm 24” is my first original composition and is a musical ekphrasis of the same chapter from the Bible. It is a representation of my feelings, emotions and reactions to the different verses of the chapter. Psalm 24 is a chapter that is very near and dear to my heart. This is what I felt while reading it and turned it into an instrumental representation as for me, personally, music expresses where words fail. And the glory and majesty of Christ has left me speechless. Hence, here’s a speechless piece that expresses me.

8) Tell us more about your upcoming projects.

My new single, ‘Sunshade’ is going to release on the 6th of February. Also, I’m currently working on my album which will hopefully come out by the end of this year! Besides this, I also work for various artists like Kabeer Ali for whom I produce music.

9) What advice would you give to youngsters?

I don’t think there’s one certain way for anyone, but I just want to say that if you truly love music, don’t second guess yourself and just go for it. Don’t make music for others, but for yourself and you’ll achieve maximum happiness and satisfaction from it!

10) How was life in quarantine?

The starting of the quarantine wasn’t too smooth and it was difficult for me to cope up with it since I’m a very outgoing person. However, as time passed, I rediscovered my love for music and started making my own music so I’m very grateful for it because I grew a lot during this period. All in all, it has been one hell of a ride!
