Melange, the word denotes “a mixture” derived from the old French origin. Group of young and talented musicians reunite to exhibit the bizarre face of music in their own form. Melange is neither a typical rock band nor any other bollywood orchestra through which people have got enough saturation. Melange is a unique musical band that has proved that music can never be differentiated on the basis of language or origin.
The extraordinary concept of Melange is to combine the world music with the bollywood music. It’s not only the combination of these two but also the songs of melange are being rearranged to make it sound different and as beautiful as the original songs sound. Melange’s music is more inclined towards fusion though it simplifies the output to rule on the general mass.

While singers are emotionally engaged with the lyrics.• The precursors of rhythm and blues came from jazz and blues, which overlapped in the 1930s through musicians such as Leroy Carr, Cab Calloway, Count Basie, and T-Bone Walker. There was also increasing emphasis on the electric guitar as a lead instrument, as well as the piano and saxophone.• Now the term R&B is almost always used instead of the full rhythm and blues, and mainstream use of the term usually refers to contemporary R&B, which is a newer version of soul and funk- influenced pop music that originated as disco faded from popularity.
