Fortunately, we Indians have been bestowed with a taste for miscellaneous music, regardless of the genre. Music has a special place in our lives, to say the least. Call it a medium of expressing emotions, connecting with people or a way of life, music is beyond any specific explanation or exact definition.
Striking its parallel with an experience, Charlie “YardBird” Parker quips, “Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don’t live it, it won’t come out of your horn. They teach you there’s a boundary line to music. But, man, there’s no boundary line to art.”
Over the years, international music artists have garnered immense popularity in India. From Coldplay, Ed Sheeran to Metallica, these artists have taken the country by a storm in almost no time. Their compositions and melodies have continued to captivate the audience with a number of current events in India featuring them. They are a growing fad in India and how!
With all the spurt in the country, we can come across a number of music festivals and gigs hitting a raving success amongst music enthusiasts and lovers. From metal bands to the most popular artists in the world, the country hosts a number of major music festivals and concerts. NH7 Weekender (Pune, Bangalore, Delhi, Kolkatta), Bangalore Open Air (Bangalore), the Escape Festival of Art and Music (Naukuchiatal, UP), Mood Indigo (IIT Mumbai), Sunburn Festival (Candolim, Goa), Summer Storm Festival (Bangalore), are just to name a few from the recent, upcoming and current events in India.
Drawing crowds in huge numbers, these concerts have always been a runaway hit. Their concept was based on the basic idea of bringing together the people who love different genres of music.
Not one international band or artist steps off the stage in Indian music festivals without regaling the audience. These festivals have their share of international performances but are also graced with concerts of various Bollywood singers. All the listeners in the music concerts are able to connect with the lyrics of songs at a very deep level.
No wonder what the buzz is all about and why people go crazy and excited waiting for such music festivals.
