A music school in Chembur, Adagio, has been organising Thursday Vinyl Nights with a theme, and it’s perfect for anyone who’s looking to immerse themselves into old-school music.
Adagio is a music studio and a space for music lovers to come and learn music. They have guitar lessons, listening sessions and even a guitar boutique wherein they have tone tested collection of hand-picked guitars
However, what really fascinates us are the blissful vinyl nights they organise every Thursday. Imagine a room full of music lovers listening to an entire album with no lights, no phones and no distractions. That’s what a typical Thursday Vinyl Night at Adagio looks like. It was started off in November 2016 with an intention to wholly dedicate a night to pure unadulterated form of music. Aman Singh Gujral, founder of Adagio tells us the idea is to bring back the magic of vinyls. And the magic is alive as every Thursday people book a spot, depending on the popularity of the album playing that night.
The idea that one can just sit and listen to the entire album in a dark room with people who love music as much as you do. For the month of July, the theme is Pink Floyd and the albums that have been lined up include: Animal, Wall, Wish You Were Here and Dark Side of The Moon. The session starts at 8.30pm, however people can come in earlier and browse through the records and albums covers. Most of these vinyl records have been collected by Aman over the past seven-eight years and he is more than happy to share them with more people.
Once the sessions is done, people can discuss the album and form smaller groups and socialise. It’s a great place to connect with fellow musicians or just unwind for those few hours and throw yourself into a room full of strangers connected by that one album.
Tickets cost INR 300 for non-members and are free for members
