Last Chance To Be A Part Of Bandra’s Festival – Celebrate Bandra

Celebrate Bandra is about to conclude, and if you think you have missed the bus this time, there is still a ray of hope left. Here is the information on some of the events that are spread across the next few days.

For those who appreciate cinema, catch the film screening of Woodstock this Friday. Woodstock is a 1970 American documentary on the Woodstock Festival that took place in August 1969 at Bethel, New York. Considered to be one of the most entertaining documentaries ever made, the film won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

If plays interest you more, watch Motley’s By George – a collection of three pieces by George Brenard Shaw. The centerpiece is ‘Village Wooing’ preceded by the one-act play ‘How he lied to her Husband’ and a poem, ‘English pronunciation’.

For the ones who are musically inclined, listen to Hindi Rock music by Airport. The band comprises Arijit Datta on vocals and guitar, Vinay Lobo on lead guitar, Amit Ahuja on bass, Ashwin Andrews on drums and Zohran Miranda on rhythm guitar. Since their launch in December 2009, the band has played at various youth festivals and hang-outs, corporate events and live music venues across India.

Also, you can spend an evening listening to Usha Uthup, a popular Indian pop, jazz and playback singer in Bandra Fort Amphitheatre. Hear Nikhil D’Souza on Saurday, 26th - a guitarist, singer and song-writer who got famous for the song Mera Bina from the movie Crook. Watch the band Sky Rabbit perform at the Bandra promenade. The band that describes their sound as electronic/alternative consists Raxit (vocals), Rahul (guitar), Siddharth (bass) and Harsh (drums). Formerly named as Medusa, it was one of the four bands in India that was selected to a part of Soundpad, a project organized by the British Counsil. The band performed at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton and continued their tour to Cardiff, Oxford, Liverpool and London.

So, before Sunday 27th November, 2011, you can probably take pride in being a part of Celebrate Bandra.
