A Musical Evening, Which Is A Part Of A Bigger Project Encouraging Indians To Croon Their Folk Songs, Saw A Great Response.
The eve of Holi saw a beautiful musical event in Gurgaon. The auditorium brimmed with integrating instrumental music, song and dance performances, and paintings. The event – Come India Sing A Festive Song – A Musical Evening Celebrating Colours, was organised by Lorraine Music Academy and LAMP Trust. One of the performances was by pianist Lorraine Fiona Aloysius, alongwith painter, sculptor and photographer Savita Malhotra who painted on stage to the music. The event encourages people of all age groups to sing their folk and festive songs. “Music is food for the soul. A good diet of the right kind of music gives you mental, emotional, intellectual and spiritual stability. We have a diverse heritage of folk and festive songs. India’s unique cultural ethos is well described as unity in diversity,” says Aubrey Aloysius, founder of the Lorraine Music Academy and the LAMP Trust.
