With the time India is changing too, gone are the days when cassette used to be played in houses with Indian music pouring out of it. People are going out more and more and tasting the joy of live music performances. Record companies are not too happy with their business charts and the people are on a high ride. Live music in India – music shows and concerts are happening in every town all across the country.
In the recent years we have turned more to music concerts. Thanks to the various event management companies that it has become so affordable and easy to get yourself into these concerts with so little hassle then you can almost call it null. These event management companies have bridged the gap between the common men and the celebrities. Every little town now has concerts and events on new years where we get to hear big names. People now prefer going to concerts on a new year more the sitting inside their homes and watching shows and concerts on their idiot box and cutting a cake when the clock strikes to mark the New Year.
Don’t confuse live music with music concerts alone. Live music encompasses radio concerts; live television shows and live concerts though live concerts make most of it. Radio stations have singers and bands as hosts on various occasions and programs. I remember Indian Ocean playing at the Radio Mirchi station some time back in Delhi. Also live music concerts on television sets entertain a large crowd. They serve people sitting in the comfort of their warm winter bed while the artist is performing in some city hundreds of kilometers away.
Why hear the recorded song when you can hear the artist or the band play it live. Though it is not a replacement for recorded songs it is in a different league. The atmosphere, the enthusiasm, the loudness of the music, the music waves hitting you on your chest all adds to the experience of a live music concert. We cannot experience all of this with recorded songs for sure and plus the excitement of seeing the artist perform right in front of you is the icing on the cake. Most of the colleges now have cultural fests, which provide the student with a breather in their hectic year calendar. Most of these cultural fests have live shows and concerts to entertain the students to the fullest and trust me you should see the spirits of the students of such days (they are higher then the wall in Game Of Thrones).
