A non-resident Indian, Nayan Bhula decided to use the moniker "The NRI" when he decided to release some of his lo-fi 4-track cassette recordings. That collection of songs, showed Nayan learning to play, sing, and write in a laid-back acoustic setting - a sharp contrast to the high-energy post punk feel of his band, GIST. After some positive reaction to those older songs, he decided to record full-band versions of those songs along with some new ones. During this phase, a few of his favorite musicians happened to be either leaving bands or moving into the DC-metro area. Hence, "The NRI" became "The NRIs." The result of all this? A show for you to enjoy.
