A weekend filled to the brim with concerts, interactions with musicians, films, jam sessions and more, with every genre of music you can think of, from North Indian to Carnatic, qawwali to rap, folk, ghazal, Bollywood…is there anything better for a music lover? The 3rd India Music Summit to be held in Jaipur October 4-5-6, has over 40 such events crammed into that short period of time, starting at 7 am and stretching into quite possibly the next day. The summit aims at creating ‘Kansens’, or informed listeners, by reportedly demystifying classical music, presenting it without any Bollywood colour, and opening a door to another world where music rules.
The 3rd edition includes workshops by Vidushi Aruna Sairam, Ustad Shujaat Khan and others. And there will be Asha Bhosle talking to Prasoon Joshi, along with Javed Ali, Sunidhi Chauhan, Soumil and Sidharth Mahadevan, Shashank Subramaniam, Vikku Vinayakram, Taufiq Qureshi, Kaushiki Chakravorty, Ustad Rashid Khan and more artistes than we can remember on the list. There will be manganiyars, along with Mame Khan and his team. Raja Kumari will add her rap magic, while Punjabi rapper PrabhDeep and 12-year-old pianist Lydian Nadaswaram add star value. We have left out lots of famous names, but the best way to find out who they are is to go to Jaipur and watch, listen and love!
Enjoy your trip!
