    #LifeisMusic – 1023MB, SAKHA, Bombay Ducks all set to win everyone over with their performances!

    #LifeisMusic – 1023MB, SAKHA, Bombay Ducks all set to win everyone over with their performances!

    Round one of the contest has each of the 12 band members wearing their best game face. But will it be enough?
    In the last episode, we couldn’t help but pick sides. But that got us thinking. Would Beethoven have survived a play-off with Tchaikovsky? Would it be fair to put them up against each other? And if we had to choose one at the end, what a sorry shame it would be for our ears that were denied the music of the losing composer.  Click here to read more

    #LifeIsMusic – Welcome aboard the 747

    A solo artiste’s journey across seven seas and finding jugalbandi closer home
    Rhythm, it would seem runs in the Qureshi family. This is a particularly endearing episode of #LifeIsMusic, thanks to a guest appearance by Shikhar Naad Qureshi, son of Taufiq Qureshi and by the looks of it, yet another legend in the making. Shikhar may be in his early twenties but what he lacks in years, he more than makes up for in talent. That his grandfather was the illustrious Ustad Alla Rakha is noteworthy.

    #LifeIsMusic – Avdhoot Phadke: Breathing music

    Shy, dedicated, realistic, humble and extremely soft-spoken, Avdhoot Phadke, the 21-year-old flutist from Mumbai’s satellite town Dombivli is a talent that you cannot ignore and a young role model you’d hope kids in the future have. Excerpts from an interview:

    I was around eight years-old. There was a flute at home;a plain bamboo one. I just picked it up and tried to play it and I liked the sound of it. I was fascinated by the sound. It got me intrigued, so I started learning. Click here to read more
