In a globalised world, music truly knows no bounderies! Indeed, music is created, distributed and consumed in radically different ways today as compared to even a few decades ago. Over the past century, Classical Music has merged with Folk Music, Jazz, Popular Music, and many other artistic styles thereby creating a whole new contemporary language. To celebrate this musical diversity, Alliance Francaise d’Ahmedabad had organized a concert called Songe Capricorne on July 22 in collaboration with the gifted musician Aditya Gandhi. The recital was a brief glimpse into music as Aditya sees it – a world where age old idioms combine with a modern and more organic style of music and where folklore is transformed into contemporary images reflective of contemporary life.
