The second Battle of the Bands inter-house competition took place on the 19th of February, 2020. This much-anticipated competition brought together participants and spectators
based on their love for music. The result of the rigorous practice leading up to the final performance was many engaging performances; each House performed two songs of their
choices in genres ranging from rock to pop. Well deservedly, the Narmada Lions came in first place playing the songs “Love the Way You Lie” by Eminem and “Dancing Queen” by ABBA. Coming in close second was the Kaveri Tuskers with “Centuries” by Fall Out Boy and “Whatever it Takes” by Imagine Dragons. Third place was taken by the Ganges Dolphins
performing “Demons” by Imagine Dragons and multiple solo pieces. Brahmaputra Rhinos followed in fourth place with the songs “Shut up and Dance” by Walk the Moon and “Love
Yourself” by Justin Beiber.
Battle of the Bands is a particularly memorable event because it attracts students with two different motivations; those who are competitive and those who treat music as their passion. There is no contradiction between these two motives because music is a
universal language that is spoken by all.
