It is often said that when words fail, music speaks. The recently concluded musical concert by Good Medicine Music was the talk of the town. The theme ‘Celebrating Music’ was in perfect sync with the outfit of the models and the background score that resonated in the air. The event started off with a devotional song, followed by the lighting of the lamp. A musical tribute was paid to the King of Hip Hop, Michael Jackson and popular scores of the music maestro AR.Rahman was played during the concert.
Apart from the lilting music that lifted the mood of the audience, the attraction was the eight rounds that talked about the different genres of music.
This music genre has its roots the Afro-American communities of the US. The entire audience were in rapt attention as the band crooned to the tune of In The Mood by Glenn Miller and My Funny Valentine by Chet Baker. The stage soon turned into a Musical Broadway, with the mellifluous tone of the saxophone and the high pitch of the musical instrument. Different forms like Acid Jazz, Continental Jazz and Afro Cuban Jazz were played.
The last segment of this round was a tribute to Paul Whiteman, who is referred to as the King of Jazz.
If you have grown up listening to Rolling Stones and Eminem, the second round was a treat to the audience in terms of music and songs. Another striking feature is the makeup and hairstyle that the band members sported. In tune with the Hip Hop theme, the members walked on the stage with baggy pants and sang the popular That’s What I Likeby Bruno Mars and Redbone by Childish Gambino.
This round saw the culmination of tracks by Bhimsen Joshi, M.S. Subbulakshmi, Girija Devi and Mohammed Rafi. The atmosphere had a heavy air of patriotism as the songs matched the ragas and beats of the musical instruments. The sitar and the veena were played alongside which indeed left a lasting impression in everyone’s ears and mind.
It was striking to see the audience sing along with our band members, while a section of the crowd shouted encore.
This form of music originated in the United States and the word Pop is often interchangeably used with popular music. This round saw eclectic sounds derived from styles like urban, dance and country music. Songs from Beatles, Rolling Stones, ABBA were sung while the youngsters grooved to the music.
With a guitar in one hand and the microphone in the other, the scene reverberated the late 1960s, which saw most of the listeners chanting these songs.
This form of music is associated with ballads and dance steps in simple forms. The members walked on the stage carrying banjos, acoustic guitars, dobros, fiddles and the harmonicas. The icing on the cake was the song. It Ain’t My Fault by Brothers Osborne and Wagin Wheel by Darius Rucker. From hip shaking music to foot-tapping scores, each of the different genres of music made the audience -that comprised mainly youngsters- fall in love with music. Every clap was accompanied by a deafening cheer that ended with an encore from the jubilant crowd.
Heard about this joke? An E-flat, G-flat and a B-flat walk into a café and the steward says they don’t serve minors there. If this has struck a chord with you, and if you feel they are the key to your humor, you are truly a music fanatic. This round included soulful music from instruments like the piano, violin and the saxophone. The air was filled with the melodious tunes of yesteryear songs.
Drive Away The Blues With The Country’s Best Music
Music has no boundaries, and at the Good Medicine Music concert, the last two rounds saw a delightful mix of Sufi songs and Ghazals. This invoked memories of Rabbi Shergill and Abida Parveen who are synonymous with the two music forms respectively.
The final segment was the icing sans the cherry. The country’s greatest singers, Lataji and Asha Bhonsle were immortalized through their songs. The musical team kept the audience waiting for this round, while they lifted up their musical instruments and paid a musical reverence to the Golden Voice of India.
Makeup Artists Blend Fashion Into Music
It was a Red Letter Day in the history of music and style as the makeup artist from Skulpt, Chennai turned official style partners for our musical band. By incorporating the latest fads and techniques, they turned this musical event into a grand success.
Never mind if you didn’t get the joke about the minors. It won’t land you in treble, err trouble anyway.
