Minstrels and Magic

On July 21st, I took the 29C bus and went to Top Storey, Alliance Francais (a place with memories), yet another pleasant weekend! Minstrels and Magic was a fabulous evening concert with songs from the Bhakti Movement, 13th to 17th Century. Two voices I adore , Vedanth Bharadwaj and Bindhu Malini, were fascinating. More eminent musicians like Neil Mukerjee and Anil Srinivasan were amazing. Sumirana Karle touched heights with Gurupriya's high-pitched voice. And I love Andrea Jeremia's rustic jazz voice. Since they were songs I knew, it became even more enjoyable. Music is beautiful - to sing, to play, to listen to, and to dance for.
