This July, the Nations Rock Beat (NRB) would be completing four years and during this period, the Facebook community has reached out and performed in several cities and got in touch with artistes from various cities including Pune, Bangalore, Mumbai, Kolkata and other places stimulating a bond.

Shriya Gupta, founder NRB, says "We aim at creating a space for all kinds of artists coming from varying backgrounds. It is a sad fact that art has few takers is not taken as seriously as it should. NRB wants to fill this gap."

The team was started in July 2015 with an aim to provide the best platform for all kinds of artists. It started with merely six members who had immense respect for art and its forms over Facebook. In the coming July, it will be completing 4 years and has already grown into a family of over 2500 people in Hyderabad.

The Nation's Rock Beat provides the perfect medium for any individual to showcase their art and talent. The artiste community has reached out to various cities like Pune, Bangalore, Mumbai, Kolkata and members from across India are a part of it. Be it dance, drama, literary, music or beat boxing, NRB welcomes all kinds of artists and aims at reviving those art forms which seem to have been perishing.

Shriya is pursuing engineering and believes that individuals coming from different backgrounds in regard of work, study, family or ethnicity can feel a sense of security and belongingness in the NRB.

There are 17 working departments under NRB, ranging from music, dance, drama, poetry and creative works. The army of NRB performs at various places throughout the city and at the Hyderabad Literary Festival every year.

With the concern for art and artists, NRB has aimed at initiating a 'creative revolution' in order to foster respect and appreciation for the growing talent say members. Stop Artist Exploitation is a tag they use for cutting down the ethics and disrespect that the artists face. They also provide a virtual platform on Facebook and Instagram for artists.

All-girl band

'Algirlrythm' is a musical band which has formed under NRB. The band comprises of all female members, from vocalist to drummer and was started on Women's Day this year.

It is a new initiative which was taken up by the members of NRB with an aim to cherish the talent of young girls and provide a platform for them and at the same time encourage girl power.

"Algirlrythm is something which has been very special for me. NRB has given me a platform and recognition in my field of work. I am regarded as the youngest female drummer in the city who performs and that is something very remarkable.

People come up to me saying they've never seen a girl drummer perform in events before." says Joycee Selvaraj, member Algirlrythm.It took one-and-a-half years to bring together all girls below the age of 21, to form an all-girl band. There are six other bands under NRB who have been very popular across the city for their work.

Talking about further endeavours, NRB aims at extending the platform for every artist in the nation and protect and support the talents of individuals who are regarded as latent artists.
