It is said that music can touch the heart and soul of the ones who delve deep into it. I believe it is true and the ones who truly have the passion and the ear for music would definitely relate to this. I had an opportunity to be a part of an evening full of great talent and soulful music and singing. An evening that was brightened by the artists of NSPA (National Streets for Performing Arts).
NSPA is a non-profit organization that works as a platform for the young and talented artists from across the country to showcase their passion for music.
The three NSPA performers enchanted the audience with their folk music at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Byculla, Mumbai. As the team started their sound check, I knew that I was at the right place and that every minute of their performance was going to be worth it. There were quite a lot of empty seats but the ones who came to watch, thoroughly enjoyed every bit of their performance. The three-member team gave the vibe of a complete band, in which one person sang and the other two artists played the guitar and a percussion instrument. Their original music compositions and songs brightened the evening even more and everyone who was present there truly loved it. These independent artists were simple in what they did and they were flawless at it. Their simple and soulful music touched the audience and we all wished that they would not stop playing.
It is never easy for an artist to compose music and write songs that can win the hearts of people who watch them perform. NSPA, in its own way, is helping many independent artists to get the right platform and showcase their talent. You may have come across the artists who sit by the metro stations in Mumbai and perform. These artists are all from the National Streets of Performing Arts.
If you have never heard the artists of NSPA perform, then I highly encourage you to give it a shot and see for yourself. These artists are extremely talented and they definitely deserve our support. So friends, go out there and do support them. The entry to their events is free and their music will not just leave you entertained but overwhelmed.
