Standing By is an attempt to uncover and document the history of independent music in India. Through six episodes and a mammoth digital archiving effort, the series unearths some of the most interesting stories and events that were fundamental to the formation of the now thriving independent music scene in the country. Produced by OML and Red Bull Media House, Standing By traverses through the decades, through interviews with people who are now household names in the music industry – from musicians and journalists to event organisers and label heads – as well as never-seen-before footage and vintage images. Among the interviewees, of which there are over 100, are musical legends such as Usha Uthup, Louis Banks and Carlton Kitto, journalists and broadcasters such as Jug Suraiya, Naresh Fernandes, Brian Tellis and Aruna Dasgupta, and some of the best-known names of the current music scene, including Vishal Dadlani, Nikhil Chinapa, Rahul Ram, Monica Dogra, Nucleya and Dualist Inquiry.
