The rains are known to saturate colours of your local landscape, but here's a concert to help fine-tune the monsoon experience further, with tunes and beats from the North-East, among other sounds.

The Hyderabad Western Music Forum, as part of the Music Alive series, is presenting 'A Violin For The Monsoon', on the 27th of August, at Lamakaan.

The program is divided into 3 slots, and will feature Anwar Manuel Alam on the violin. He will be accompanied by Joe Koster on the keyboard/piano in one slot, Daniel Engty on the acoustic guitar in the next slot, and Aradhana Karhade with Hindustani vocals and Suhas Shastri on the tabla in the final slot.

Anwar Manuel Alam is of Pakistani and German parentage. He studied music at the Musikhochschule Cologne/Aachen, and teaches music in Munich. He has studied Hindustani music with Wajid Ali (tabla, Lahore/Pakistan) and Carnatic with T N Krishnan (Chennai).

The 3 sections of the program are as follows:

Section 1 - Classical/European Music

This section includes compositions of Bach, Brahms, Pugnani-Kreisler, De Falla and Gershwin. Joe Koster, a Hyderabad-based Swiss piano player, choir conductor and music teacher, will play the keyboard/piano.

Section 2 - Experimental Music

This section includes a combination of Blues/Rock/Improvisational/Nagaland folk music, with Daniel Engty on the acoustic guitar. Daniel is a professional lead guitarist for Abiogenesis, an experimental rock band based in Dimapur (Nagaland). He also plays for the folk-metal band Jambili from Diphu in Karbi Anglong (Assam). He plays indigenous folk instruments of Assam as well.

Section 3 - Cross Cultural Music

This segment is dedicated to Indian inter-disciplinary music, with Aradhana Karhade on Hindustani vocals and Suhas Shastri on the tabla.
