The music scene in India has taken off recently. With new acts popping up all over the country, there has been a tremendous amount of growth in the field of music that India is witnessing. One such event, that will celebrate a little known genre of music is the Mirchi Sufi Festival, which will see popular radio channel Radio Mirchi organize a musical night that will only focus on Sufi music, along with the poetic beauty of four iconic musicians – Kailash Kher, Kavita Seth, Javed Ali and the Wadali Brothers. The stellar line up will see this event become one of the most exclusive musical events in the city of Mumbai. The highlight of the night will be Bollywood Sufi maestro, Kailash Kher, who is a powerhouse on stage. Promising a night of the best music, this one is a delight to be at!
Another music and dance event that made waves in the past is back, the Versatile Dandia's Opera, which will allows Mumbaikars to witness garba, along with different forms of dance, including salsa, Hip Hop, contemporary, robotics and much more! Sound interesting? Before the craziness of Navratri begins, here's something cool to be a part of. With new forms of dance, this will be a fun ride, from start to finish. Also, there's something special for all the participants – a chance to perform and interact with the top Garba artists and choreographers in town!
That isn't all, and we saved something that has been a part of our lives for the last one –Geetmala! A musical evening, Geetmala was first a weekly radio countdown of the biggest filmy songs which was broadcast on Radio Ceylon between 1952 to 1988, and then moved to Vividh Bharti. This time around, the show will be recreated, and presented live, with Ameen Sayani's interviews with different music directors. Songs will be presented live, along with Gaurav Bangia and Amroota Nnatu, and the golden age of Indian music will come alive, once more. So, there you have it, a few of the best gigs to be at, for the finest in Indian music!
