Sidharta is a three piece "punk noise"
band hailing from Montreal Canada. I had no idea that the name Sidharta
was Buddha's original name but with two d's rather than one. Herman
Hesse also wrote a book called Siddharta and that Sidharta is a famous
soap brand in Taiwan.
Sidharta formed as a band in Paris
France in 2001. Ouraagan the vocalist/guitarist met the other band
members . The group played venues in Europe along with recording two
demo's. Their last demo made quite an impact with Indy Rock Radio and
In 2003 the band decided they needed a
change so they migrated to Montreal Canada. Upon moving to Montreal the
band played such venues as Le Cafe Chaos, Cafe Campus, The Barfly, L'X,
Le' Balare and many
toured Canada, Europe and recorded a six track EP produced by Harris
They made a video by Big Murray and is
now now on the Canadian Channels listings (MUSIQUEPLUS Etc...)
Sidharta is influenced by noisy edgy
bands such as Sonic Youth, Queens Of The Stoneage, Fugazi, The Pixies,
The Doors, A Perfect Circle, Smashing Pumpkins, The Talking Heads, The
Mars Volta plus many others...
Sidharta will be touring the USA this
summer please check out their My Space site and Web Site for more
