For those who swear by pop and rock, and can make little or no sense of EDM (electronic dance music) here is a newly crafted festival — Windsong. A two-day long gala to be held at Baga beach, Goa on December 24 and 25, it includes only indigenous acts from across a plethora of musical genres such as folk, jazz, rock, funk and soul music.
A total of 22 acts and artistes will be performing live at the festival. The highlights for day one, include performances by soul singer Shefali Alvares (of Tu Mera Hero fame), Soulmate, Shkabang (Anushka Manchanda and band), Strings, Agnee (Mohan and Koko), and Remo Fernandes amongst others.
Day two, will be marked by eminent names like Shantanu Pandit, Ankur Tewari, Sid Coutto, Menwhopause, Shaa’ir + Func, Papon & The East India Co, Remo & The Microwave, Rabbi Shergill, Lucky Ali and others. “We hope it is a great success,” says Shailendra Singh, Joint MD, Percept Ltd. “We are delighted to support the live space with this new festival that has a stellar line-up of renowned artists like Remo, Lucky Ali, Rabbi Strings,” he adds, emphasising that this will be a one of its kind Christmas gala.
