Presenting our monsoon playlist - live from Mumbai's streets!

Hello there!

             "The hills are alive with the sound of music!" These are the words that Julie Andrews joyously trilled in the beloved 1965 musical The Sound of Music - ‚Äčand we didn't doubt her for a second, because it seemed perfectly reasonable for a young nun to be dancing and singing with the luscious Austrian landscape in the background. It's strange how we don't make such demands of our own native surroundings. So what if we have more halvais ‚Äčthan hills? So what if the dainty, tinkling cow bells are replaced by the hilarious "Horn OK Please" signboards? The music of Mumbai's streets may be unconventional, but that's exactly what makes it so endearing! After all, yeh hai Bambai meri jaan!

 

When non-locals step onto the outstation platform at Mumbai Central - their first interaction with this magical, maddening place we have come to know and love as Bambai nagariya is with hurried coolies, rush hour crowds, and with an atmosphere of general pandemonium. Last Friday - on July the 4th - however, something different entered the equation in the form ofMarathi folk

fusion artists Rahul and Rohit. The duo immediately recognized the pace and pulsating energy of their new landscape and - paradoxically - blended into it, while still managing to stand out!

"Dekho baarish aayi!" - It was with this heartening song that our Uttarakhandi lok geet singer attempted to appease the rain gods - not only using his persuasive pahaadi andaaz, but with over 100 students in tow! His two-week interactive workshop at Grant road's Sundatta High School ended with great gusto last Saturday, with the children singing songs about young love (Otua Belena) and festive occasions (Bara Peti Ghaghari), and demanding that
every weekend begin this way! We can only hope that the response at Colaba Municipal School - where Sureshji and Avinash will be conducting a workshop this week - will be just as lively!
 

Stay tuned - lots more coming your way!

Here's what we have lined up for next week - all you have to do is stop and listen.
