As a collective, Nezqwik prides itself in being a truly unique band. The choice to remain instrumental as often as possible is intentional, as it forces us to express ourselves through the voice of our collective instruments.

In addition, we blend elements of all the genres we are immersed in, which includes, jazz, gospel, hip-hop, funk, rock, and even traditional Indian music!

We feel very strongly about our work because it is an unwavering presentation of who we are as a band, what we stand for, and the music that inspires us.
