It was the rhythm divine

The vigourous beating of drums echoed through Phoenix MarketCity as the members of Swedish band ‘Kiriaka’ performed there recently as part of ‘Alive India in Concert’.

The popular international band mesmerised the audience with their samba and reggae drumming.

‘Kiriaka’ is a unique band because it comprises 45 members, some of whom
are as young as 16 years of age.

Along with them, ‘Agni’ and ‘Aurko’ also performed. It was a magnanimous event as almost 50 musicians took to perform on the same stage.

The audience were thrilled when the band drummed the beats of ‘Sabse Age Honge Hindustani’, ‘Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram’ and ‘Vande Mataram’.  People swayed to the various tunes that were played by the band.  It was a confluence of
cultures which saw the Swedish artistes and two  Indian performers smash
out beats that were enjoyed by all. 

It was a visual treat  as people saw various percussions instruments at work, in the hands of experts.  The event was jam-packed as music-lovers waited in line for long for the band. They were even allowed to watch the band perform their soundcheck.
