From The Miliputs :

We have been working on Folk music for the last 2 years. In this span we have felt that regional folk art is regaining its lost essence. People, most significantly youngsters these days respond in a very welcoming manner when it comes to Folk. 
We have always searched for new and more acceptable form of performances to promote Bengali Folk. Paanchphoron 4 is a great initiative by Urotaar that helps young talents reach out to masses. It also opens the door for the underprivileged who cannot afford to buy passes or attend concerts.
We are happy to be a part of this initiative this year and equally excited since this was the first time we presented a live plugged street performance.

Interviewer – Who is the founding member of the team? Is this your core team?
Syamantak- Sarthak(the drummer), and I are the ones who founded the band, and no this is not the core team. We became so, eventually with time as we got hold of the other talented musicians to add up to us.
Interviewer- Why according to you is the name “Alo” suitable for your band?
Syamantak- Alo, means “light” in Bengali and when we create music, we do it with the purpose of enlightening people’s lives, because light is like a ray of hope …
