We are never really in a hurry to complete a new song or cover one.
EASTERN MIRROR: Share us your musical memories that ‘Skylarks’ have had so far. What makes it special?
SKYLARK: When it comes to playing music, we give our best and enjoy every stage moments with everyone around us. We never really perform, we have fun. We have this funny and memorable incident we faced on our way from Dimapur to a gig at the Capital, where we had opportunity to face starvation, literally because we were broke. We ended it with 20 Buck Good day Biscuit for the four and a cup of tea each. Of course on our journey back we were escorted by Gandhi’s behind our back pockets. This incident however motivated the band a lot. It reminded us that whatever we aim for, if only we put in hard work and determination, success will be ours. God Helps Those Who Helps Themselves.
