Kalaa Utsavam - Indian Festival of ...
“Few bands in the contemporary indie scene in the country have been able to sustain that momentum, transcending language barriers, on the back of just that one album as haveAvial.”-The HinduThere is nothing quite like the music Avial makes. Just a decade ago at a time when the indie rock scene in India was dominated by English-singing groups, the self-styled Kerala-based band made headlines with their genre-bending, moody brand of alternative Malayalam rock, written in their native tongue. Despite language differences in and outside of India, they continue to receive overwhelming responses, evident in the huge turnouts wherever they play.Not many in Indian alternative rock come close to replicating the band’s feat, or have found success producing music that permeates India’s multilingual society with such immediacy and emotional appeal. To their legions of fans all over India and the subcontinent, Avial will always be the band that “shuns all norms” (Rolling Stone India).Since 2003, Avial have been making music together, taking inspiration from a broad swathe of musical influences including electronic, folk and alternative rock, and infusing them with earthy Malayalam poetry on social and political issues. Their self-titled debut, which took four years to produce—and which swept up six awards at the Rolling Stone Jack Daniels Rock Awards in 2009—comprises eight tracks including their most popular singles Nada Nada and Chekele (a cover of a Malayalam folk song). The current line-up features vocalist Tony John, guitarist Rex Vijayan, drummer Mithun Puthenveetil and bassist Binny Isaac. Catch the legendary band as they make their debut in Singapore this November. This year also marks the 10th anniversary of their eponymous debut album.

Hailing from a lineage of five generations of sitar players, Niladri Kumar is a world renowned and global icon. Under the guidance, and numerous years of training from his Father and guru pandit Kartick Kumar, Niladri went on to revolutionise the style of sitar-playing and invented his own instrument, which he coined the zitar. He was the first to go electric. Niladri is hailed as a serious exponent of Indian music who has a youth appeal.It has been his constant endeavor to increase the interest and respect for this traditional art form in the younger generation, by making it accessible to them in a form they are more familiar with and better attuned to.Today, critics have praised his mastery of the sitar and his swiftness and magical ability to produce soul-stirring compositions which has earned him the nickname “Asian Hendrix”. Niladri leaves every music lover, orthodox or progressive, spellbound at his performances. Joining him in this concert are Satyajit Talwalkar on the tabla, Agnelo Fernandes on the keyboard, and Shikhar Naad Qureshi on percussion.

Kit Chan 25 Years On: A Time For Ev...
National Pop diva, Kit Chan celebrates 25th anniversary with brand new concert, 25 Years On: A Time For EverythingSINGAPORE, 06 September 2018 Singapore’s national pop diva, Kit Chan, celebrates 25 years as a singer with a brand new concert—25 Years On: A Time For Everything. The two-night concert is jointly organised by KKBOX and Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, and will be held at the iconic Esplanade Theatre on 9th and 10th November 2018. Tickets will go on sale on 7 September 2018 (Friday), via http://www.esplanade.com/kitchan.Following a much-needed breather, Kit is psyched to reemerge with this new concert. When asked if she intends to tour with this concert, Kit, widely known for her bohemian take on life, shared that talks for other concert stops are underway and that she has a new album slated for release soon. Singapore is the first confirmed concert stop for now, and where better than her home ground to kick start this brand new concert, in conjunction with her 25th anniversary!Reprising the key role of creative director for this concert, Kit wants to celebrate not just how far she’s come, but most importantly, the current state of mind she’s arrived at. It is certainly an impossible feat to condense 25 years into a two-hour concert. Thus, Kit has meticulously designed her set list, coupled with intricate lighting works and visuals to share her story. The heart of the concert lies not in chronicling her achievements or milestones over the years, but in reviewing her life, and the experiences and people whom she encountered along the way that have led her to where she is now; that enable her to truly appreciate that in life, there is a time for everything. The 25 Years On: A Time For Everything concert also marks Kit’s return to an intimate performance venue after 7 years — she decided to forgo a bigger stage with extravagant technical and lighting effects in exchange for a venue where her performance and sound quality take centre stage. Kit effuses, “Whether as a singer or as someone in the audience, Esplanade has always been my favourite performance venue. Being able to stage a show here is rather befitting of my current relaxed state of mind and being. I really want to thank KKBOX and Esplanade for making my dream of holding the anniversary concert here possible.” Fans can expect to sing along to classic Mandarin and Cantonese hits like Worry (擔心), Heartache (心痛), If There Are Seasons《天冷就回来》, Waiting《等了又等》, Home, etc. Fans can also look forward to often unexpected covers Kit will be performing at all her solo concerts. She will also be performing new tracks from her album in a public performance for the first time.In celebration of our national treasure’s 25th anniversary concert, KKBOX has perks and privileges lined up exclusively for Kit’s fans. A free 60-day KKBOX premium membership will be given to all those who purchase Kit Chan [25 Years On: A Time For Everything] concert tickets. To prep themselves for the concert, fans can enjoy unlimited streaming of Kit’s songs amidst more than 45 million tracks in KKBOX’s database. Fans can keep their eyes peeled for more exclusive content of Kit on KKBOX!Kit Chan [25 Years On: A Time For Everything] is jointly presented by KKBOX and Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.

“Vishaal Sapuram might be quiet, but his fingers do all the talking for him.”-The HinduTexas-born music prodigy Vishaal Sapuram first encountered the chitravina at the age of six when his parents took him to an N. Ravikiran concert in Chennai. What started out as a family vacation led to two decades of mastering the rare and exquisite instrument. Young Vishaal had been so struck by the mesmerisingly rich and smooth tones of the chitravina that he resolved to become Ravikiran’s disciple despite the distance, and he hasn’t looked back since. The chitravina, an ancient 20 or 21-string lute also referred to as the gotuvadyam, resembles a veena (slide lute) without frets and sounds like a combination of the veena and a violin. Some believe that it inspired the Hawaiian slide guitar.The deep resonating sounds and melodious tones that it produces make it suited for presenting all facets of Indian music. However, the absence of frets, as well as the great control players must exercise given the way it is played (the right hand plucks while the left sustains and renders microtones using a plectrum or teflon), makes it particularly challenging to master, and only a handful of musicians around the world today play it.Today, the 28-year-old Vishaal is one of the rare few making headway with the chitravina. His achievements include inventing a new raga (musical scale) with his guru Ravikiran called vishweshwarapriya, receiving the blessings of the late Ravi Shankar, being an A-Grade artist for All India Radio, and winning awards and accolades over the years. Having started teaching at age 10, he also travels the world to give lectures, demonstrations, workshops and classes.Don’t miss this chance to catch Vishaal in action with his chitravina accompanied by R Raghul on the violin, N C Bharadwai on the mridangam and S Krishna on the ghatam.For more details about Kalaa Utsavam 2018, visit www.esplanade.com/kalaautsavam

He trained at the world-renowned Juilliard School of Music, where he first studied as a child prodigy at age nine. As a teen, he defected to synthesizers in a classic act of rock ’n’ roll rebellion.

He is renowned for his unique fusion of classical technique and influences with rock sensibilities. In addition to playing in Dream Theater, Jordan has worked with a wide range of artists including David Bowie, Jan Hammer, Enrique Iglesias, the Paul Winter Consort, Annie Haslam, LMR, his side project with Tony Levin and Marco Minneman, Liquid Tension Experiment, Steven Wilson, Aviv Geffen, the Dixie Dregs, Rod Morgenstein, and Tony Williams, among others.
