The week after 21 June, World Music Day, is usually when the party begins – celebrating musicians and live music in every form. Here’s what Bengaluru has in store:
Rainbow Bridge: On 25 June, R&B/Soul artist Mary Ann Alexander will be performing at the Rainbow Bridge School of Music’s monthly Artist Sessions. This is a great place to get acquainted with the new crop of indie artists that are growing in India.
Throwing it back: Bengaluru’s hardest working musicians, The Nikhil Vai Collective, are back with a heavy dose of nostalgia. On 1 July, the group will be performing their tribute to the Backstreet Boys at Fandom at Gilly’s redefined, complete with the full boyband experience.
- Retronome will also be performing at the St Mark’s Road Hard Rock cafe on 25 June. Their tribute will be to the king of pop himself, Micheal Jackson.
