India's longest party marathon to hit Bangalore with rapper Brodha V

A multi-city nightlife campaign that aims to redefine and reinvigorate the club scene in India, Baleno Wicked Weekends travels to Bangalore on February 25 with rapper Brodha V.

Baleno Wicked Weekends has featured indie acts like Raghu Dixit, Parekh & Singh, Junkyard Groove, and bass music producers like Sound Avtar and Mojo Jojo among others, and hopes to become the one-stop nightlife guide for artists and audience alike.

In December, Baleno Wicked Weekends made its debut in Bangalore with a show headlined by folk-rock star Raghu Dixit. The February 25 gig will be held at Glocal Junction, Bangalore.

Who is Brodha V?

Acknowledged as one of the finest English rappers in India, Brodha V aka Vignesh Shivanand came to public attention as a part of the hip-hop crew MWA (Machas With Attitude) in 2008. Having been a part of nearly 40 films, including Bollywood projects, and winning competitions around India, Brodha V signed on to a major label in 2014 as a solo artist.

His penchant for using Indian sounds and classical music samples in his songs (award-winning Indian Flava and hip-hop infused version of 'Ayigiri Nandini') and personal lyrics has garnered Brodha V a large fanbase. Comfortable in multiple languages, Brodha V is at ease sprouting lyrics to a 2Pac number as he is to an AR Rahman blockbuster.

The 26-year-old has sung for Bollywood films like Mujhse Fraandship Karoge and Chennai Express and collaborated with singers like Benny Dayal, like in the 2016-track, 'Round Round' and with composer Anirudh Ravichander of the 'Why this Kolaveri di' fame.

Described as India's longest party marathon, Baleno Wicked Weekends - a collaboration between Maruti Suzuki - NEXA and Zee Live - has put on 13 shows so far and looks to feature some of the most exciting independent music talent from India.
