While fans of Vh1 are in for a treat on World Music Day, the artists associated with the events are as excited! Here’s what some of them had to say about the whole experience:
"It was fun being a part of Vh1’s world music week celebrations, I got to do live streams with my trio and with Voctronica and we all enjoyed the interview questions and games. For practicing musicians who are passionate about what they do, almost every day is about music. What is special about having a day dedicated to music is that it is a day where musicians, non-musicians and music enthusiasts across the world can celebrate the joy that music brings to our lives. This celebration is a great way to discover and appreciate new music and artists" said Aditi Ramesh.
"Going Live with Vh1 for World Music Week was a blast! Was a super intimate vibe yet we reached so many people! World Music Day is a reminder of the gift that is music and how much it means to us! Was a great experience to celebrate with Vh1, big love to the whole team!" added Shah Rule.
Linford D’Souza of Smalltalk said, "We feel honoured to have been a part of this wonderful showcase put together by the good people at Vh1. We had a blast and are looking forward to more content like this for sure!”
"It's super encouraging and heart-warming to see how the Vh1 team brought together such a varied and special collection of artists from the indie scene! We had a really warm welcome, and felt right at home. For us, world music day signifies the spirit of exploration, emotion, expression and celebration through music - Vh1 enabled us to demonstrate what that means to us. Thank you!" said Nirmit Shah, Ape Echoes
Arjun Nair of Voctronica said, "Vh1 World Music Week was a great feeling for us to be part of, with so many artists coming together across different timestamps, to bridge the gap between people, with everyone tuned in live; very symbolic of what music has done and stood for over the years. A 6th sense that binds all. While every day is technically World Music Day, it's still a great way to underline and celebrate that bond, harmonizing reason and occasion."
Making this a truly grand celebration of music, Vh1 has also planned a plethora of on-ground events which include over fifty gigs across the country throughout the week. Across cities like Mumbai and Delhi, Vh1 has also tied up with the Furtado School of Music to celebrate music across fourteen jam rooms. Also in the works is a one-of-a-kind Vh1 & Flea Bazaar World Music Day special gig to be held at the Flea Bazaar Café in Mumbai.
So, head over to Vh1 to get with the best in music and English entertainment this World Music Day!
