The thing is, its not even so much about the music anymore (which is obviously awesome) these are also some seriously amazing people you would instantly love to know and as Sapna Bhavnani (who’s always up front dancing up a storm with a big smile on her dimpled face) put it so well, “forget the fact that they are great musicians… at the end of the day their humility is their beauty and of course their talent… Airport is where the music starts, airport is going to take you to that music.”

Psst! Catch Airport LIVE & Unplugged on pirate radio with me on Sat December 19th!

I also love that friends of Airport who came to watch, ended up on stage (this happens often at Daddy’s and everyone’s welcome to give it a whirl.) I highly recommend you check it out for yourself the next time you’re in Mumbai on a Wednesday night, you’re guaranteed a Mastercard moment:
