Join the musical siblings on their hunt for sound!

Hannan and Fatema, better known by their stage moniker, Moon Roots Project, hail from Pune, and have followed their love of music wherever it may lead them. The ‘Moon’ in their name is an homage to their guru, Monaal Aron, who is a sound engineering genius and leads at FTII. As for the rest of their name? “Hannan & I belong to the same roots – we are siblings & this is our Project” Fatema quotes.

Their musical journey began when their friend Ankit Chudasama, proprietor of the successful entertainment company Boom Box encouraged them to perform. “Heck, we didn’t even know how to plug our equipment onto a club system/console! Super funny evening.” The siblings say, reminiscing the night. Having just completed a year and a half of working with Regenerate, the duo has released a total of 5 EPs and have performed their music at various gigs in Pune, Mumbai and even Hyderabad! “It’s been a magical journey” Fatema quotes.

Their advice to anyone looking to start off in the music business is this: “There is only one thing that gets you where you want to be, and that is persistence.”
