Admitting that nothing much has so far happened on the music front, Headcount is high on ambitions though. Comprising Abhimanyu Roy (24), second-year PGDM on guitar, Sanchita Dasgupta (22), second-year PGDM as lead singer, Savyasachi Hebber (25), first-year PGDM on keyboard, Siddhartha Kathpalia (24), first-year PGDM on drums, Siddharth Sriram (25), second-year PGDM as singer and lyricist Shrey Chakravovty (24), second-year PGDM on tabla/bass guitar and vocals, the band which is one of the bands managed by Studio 7, the music society of Mudra Institute of Communications—Ahmedabad (MICA), dabbles in rock.

The members along with their peers from the band Rubber, hope to make “Studio 7, the place for recording, two-three years from now.” They also hope to stock the music society with enough equipment in the future while now they use their own.

Except E Sharp, the annual music fest organised by MICA, Headcount has so far only participated in IIM-A’s Chaos and came first in the individual category. They also handle E#, an event for semi-professional bands as part of Micanvas, the annual marketing management fest of MICA.

Roy outlines their ambitious plans for the future, “We would like to set up a virtual studio where musicians from around the globe can come together to collaborate. This would also be perfect to network with alumni. We are also working on a lot of originals. We plan to release them online through a moderated YouTube community.”

Some of the titles from the stable of Headcount include Ghost in English and Naina Paapi in Hindi. You can catch these compositions at MICA’s official channel at “It is a great place to catch the other happenings at MICA too,” the team signs off.
