Pink Floyd – Tribute

Recently i attended a concert by Pink Floyd tribute band called Breathe – The Floyd Sound. They performed in many parts of the city and country. I had a chance to catch them perform at UB City. They were very professional and sounded very good. The only disappointment was the sound system. Midway into the concert some of us were barely able to hear the vocals. The band performed the popular songs as well as not so well known ones like Arnold Layne and Set The Control For The Heart Of The Sun. Overall it was memorable concert.

The Enchanting Indian Ocean

Indian Ocean is a fusion music band with jazz rhythms integrated Slokas, Mythology etc. Their music has a very soothing feel. I have been a big fan of Indian Ocean for about 6 years. I had been to their concert twice before. This time around I heard that the Bengali Cultural Association had booked them for Durga Pooja Festive season. I booked my tickets well in advance. However when I arrived at the venue, I was disappointed to see a sparse turnout. My guess would be around 800 people. We had to wait for 1 good hour before Indian Ocean took the centre stage.

Jethro Tull – A Night Of Entralling Music

Just minutes before i could enter the concert arena, I could’nt help myself wondering if its going to be good show. For one, i was not a big fan classical/hindhustani music nor had i heard much of Jethro Tull. It was obvious that it was too late thinking about it as we have already purchased the tickets. I was the one to pull in more company for the concert so all more reason for me to be worried about the quality of the music that will be played. So it was Me, Uttaran, Ozzy, Arun and Prerna, with 3 of them having little or no prior concert experience. I have heard few Jethro Tull numbers and i liked them, but not much of Anoushka Shankar, daughter of the Pandit Ravi Shankar. The first thing we had in mind as soon as we entered the arena was to gobble up some unhealthy food and thats exactly what we did. The concert started at around 7:15 PM and Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull introduced Anoushka and her band. She started off with Raag Jog in Aaditaalam. The splendid sound of sitar and tabala gelled well with the cold weather to give a promising start. She mellowed down with Raag Panchamsigara her dad’s composition which was not so much to my liking but it was great anyway. She went on to play another song which iam not sure what it was. But it was overall a superb performance. This has convinced me to try out Anoushka’s works. After the first set, we were eagerly waiting for Tull to take stage. The second set was purely JT, and they started off with Living In The Past.
