The Konkani speaking people are spread all over the Konkan region of India from Kasargod in Kerala to Sawantwadi in Maharashtra, besides Goa and Mangalore in Karnataka.
The Lynx has grown immensely popularly because of their unique rendition of various styles of music, which appealed to the public. It is because of this very appeal, they performed in various cities of India, and countries abroad such as England, Dubai, Doha-Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Abu-Dhabi. 

The band holds the unique distinction of being the first Goan musicians ever, to make a CD containing Konkani and English music ~ both traditional and original, called "Viva Goenkar" ~ a highly successful venture to date.
