Mumbai commuters returned home with a smile as a public performance caught them by surprise on Monday evening. Singer-songwriter Imli Imchen and newly formed brass quartet, Brass Achaar performed a two-hour slot during rush hour [5.30pm-7.30pm]. While Imchen’s acoustic guitar struggled to be heard over the humdrum of Mumbai locals, the Brass Achaar, which comprises saxophonists Shirish Malhotra, Something Relavant’s Ryan Sadri and Amar Sukhi both on the saxophone and Ramon Ibrahim on the trombone, was the show stealer.
