NAC is a two piece band that facilitates the coming together of two talented musicians, Shrikanth Nair (vocalist/guitarist) and Mrugendra Mohadkar (flautist) who gracefully combine their talents to create good music.

He is a trained classical musician who has been honing his skills for the past 7 years. Currently, he is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Engineering while also mastering his private hobby, which is flute playing!
“I just wanted to let you know, what you are doing with live music at the railway stations is absolutely amazing. Several years ago I saw the new York symphony orchestra play in the new York subway and it changed me forever.Thank you for bringing back a little soul to Mumbai.”
“आज 10 बजे के करीब टिकट आरक्षण के लिए बोरीवली स्टेशन गया था. छोटे भाई मनोज का लोकल टिकट काउंटर पर इंतज़ार कर रहा था, तभी ढोलक के साथ किसी के गाने की आवाज़ सुनाई पड़ी, वो भी सुरीली, बरबस मैं उस ओर चला गया. देखा एक छोटा से मंच पर दो कलाकार बैठे तल्लीन गीत-संगीत की गंगा बहा रहे हैं.बहुत ही अच्छा लगा....हर तरफ शोर-तनाव के बीच सुरीला, मन को आनन्द विभोर कर देने वाला सगीत...बहुत ही दिलकश लगा. NSAP को इस आयोजन श्रृंखला के लिए बधाई!!!”
“NSPA u rock !!”
“I reached Vashi station tired and worn out from the days work, to see a crowd formed around a man, went to investigate, and I saw a man performing a song which sounded like Sufi music to me. His voice echoed through the granite corridors of the station and the merry strums of his guitar filled the air with melancholy. I stood there hearing his song about finding God in ones own belief, reminded me of Kabir ke Dohe which i had read when i was a kid.”
