Rhythmic beats spell magic

The Valentine’s Day celebrations couldn’t have been better for couples who had the unique opportunity to be a part of several interactive and open-air activities held at The Collection, UB City recently. The events were conducted at the Piazza and the amphitheatre and the audience thoroughly enjoyed them.

 Activities at the mall included wine-stomping, which was followed by an African drum show. Wine stomping was extremely popular with people who visited the mall and couples had a great time while they grooved to the music. The African drum show was the highlight of the evening and the amphitheatre saw many picking up a drum and engaging in this community activity.

Shyam Suraj, one of the artistes of the African drum show, said that they don’t compromise on the quality of drums. “We got the authentic African drums all the way from Africa. Today we are using two kinds of native drums, Djembe and Djun Djun, along with many other percussion instruments.”

He further said, “Community drum circle is a very popular concept abroad and it is catching up here as well. We perform at several corporate events, where we help the employees with music therapy. We are trying to spread love through music. The show is divided into many parts and the audience is asked to play with us, sing along and do a little jig. Overall, it is a fun-filled activity and we will try to involve more and more people in the show.”

The show started with Jira or a powerful beat and saw the drummers enthralling the audience with their energy.
