I’m writing this post about the band Solar Punch just because I loved their attempt of rendering Yun Hi Chala from Swades.
Solar Punch is a solar-powered band that uses music to educate people about the environment and climate change. Their sound system is powered by a small PV array mounted atop band mate Alan Bigelow’s car. They charge batteries and use an inverter to convert the DC from the panels to AC for the P.A. and devices. They draw inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi’s quote – ‘Be the change you want the world to become.’
Happy news is that they are performing live in Bangalore today as per this article.
If time permits I would love to go get a Solar Punch!!! Check out their performance of Yun Hi Chala:
