Karmaasa has a deep meaning in itself which is a part of ethnic Punjabi Roots. It's a combination of two Words "Karma" derived from Sanskrit which means "action" or "deed". And "Assa," derived from Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji meaning "Ray of Hope" . Combination of both the words leads to the deep meaning which states "To keep the hope alive through our positive actions by successfully defeating all obstacles of life ." Karmaasa claim to be the first ever Punjabi rock band.
