They were placed at no. 9 as VH1\'s top ten big rookies in 2007 in India.
Currently they are in India putting final touches on their second album and touring.
They have spent most of 2007 performing and recording all over India, NYC and London.
SHAAIR means poet, in Urdu.
FUNC comes from the word function, and also rhymes with funk.:-)
SHAA’IR is from NYC and comes from a performance art background, having danced and performed on and off Broadway. She is also a graduate of NYU\'s prestigious music performance program.
FUNC is an art school graduate from Mumbai, India and has been part rock band Pentagram for 14 yrs.
He is also a producer who has worked and collaborated with several bands, and also composes for tv and films.
They met in India in 2005.
Decided to write music together.
And are on a mission to bridge and unite the world of music and art with their sound.
SHAA’IR grew up in the U.S.A in Maryland, listening to Indian classical, ghazals and bollywood music.
FUNC grew up in Mumbai listening to funk, rock, disco and reggae from the west.
It is this wonderful evolution that makes their sound what it is and drives them to share an idea that it is ‘the world is not always what it seems like on TV’
STOP THE PROPOGANDA. START THE PARTY IN THE NAME OF LOVE.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
\"Overall, in many ways, Shaa\'ir and Func are the best thing to happen to Indian rock music in a while. And that\'s because they aren\'t Indian, nor are they rock. Their vibe is cosmopolitan and truly \'world\' without the limitations of generic considerations cramping their style.\"

– Mid-Day News
\"Fusing a mélange of poetry, funk, R&B, electronica, and a healthy side of jazz, Shaa\'ir and Func live to serve up the unexpected. Their bridging of the gaps between a plethora of genres is reflected in their first record, New Day: The Love Album.\"
\"They overwhelm you with their rich, frothy music; there\'s a flushed up energy exploding through every note. There\'s an underlying sensual pleasure that the electronic explorations bring you, and though you might be tempted to compare them to other international electronic acts, the chemistry that you can dig into while listening to Shaa\'ir + Func is unique. \"
