26 May 2018
What Is It?
A day long musical extravaganza, that’s what! The Yellow Taxi Music Project is all set to take place in Nicco Park on May 26 from 12 noon onwards. Fresh indigenous originals that’ll tug at your roots and also take you around the world – that’s what ‘the Yellow Taxi Music Project’ is all about. Oh, and they have lined up some great food and a flea market.
Who Is It For?
For all music aficionados. Plus music, food and thrift shopping – if getting these three all in one place excites you, then you might not want to give the event a miss.
Why Should I Go?
You can catch local acts with great original music. Think Arko Mukherjee’s Fiddler’s Green who mix Pan Asian folk forms like bhatiyali, baul, fakiri with styles from all over the world like Celtic traditional tunes, bluegrass, Jewish folk tunes, Afro-Cuban styles and more.
You can also catch Kartick Das Baul from Shantiniketan who sings the fabled verses of Lalon Fakir. And there is Tirtha, an Indian music composer, singer with many film scores under his belt.
And how can anyone miss out on the amazing headlining acts from Sufi maestros Nizami Bandhu. And the fabulous and much-feted The Manganiyar Seduction? Did you know Nizami Bandhu are the direct descendants of court singers of the Sufi saint Nizamuddin Auliya? And wait till you hear about The Manganiyer Seduction. Not only do they play Rajasthani folk music, they also create a theatrical experience with a mesmerising play of lights that glow in sync with the singers. We are getting the chills just by thinking about it.
The entry is by invitation only, so we’re saying, RSVP at 9874291200 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, and collect your invitation passes from Chai Break outlets, INOX multiplexes or the RED FM office before they run out.
