Based around the song writing partnership of Saira Hussain and Steve Ager and the musicianship of Jeevan Rihal (harmonium/keyboards and additional vocals), Vikaash Sankadecha (percussion) and Emre Ramazanoglu (drums), Trickbaby has evolved into a genuinely unique band. Described as an East/West soundclash, Saira cites influences from modern dance music through to Bollywood movie classics. It is this unique blend of inspiration, and contemporary use of classic Indian instruments alongside modern production values that provide the basis of the Trickbaby sound.
Trickbaby's debut single, 'Indi-Yarn' received massive mainstream media attention. It reached *46 in the British national chart, was the first Hindi language single to be playlisted at Radio One and was their morning show’s record of the week for a record three weeks. At this point Trickbaby jumped off the conveyor belt and evolved the Trickbaby sound on their own creative terms, playing live in Europe and the US, and setting up their own label, Chachaman Records.
