Bonjour India Festivals

I just gate crashed into one of the ongoing two month long Bonjour India cultural festival going on in various cities in India during December & January. I'd come to Royal Orchid Hotel on old Airport Road, Bangalore, today and happened to attend the performance by Sharik Hassan Paris Trio at the hotel. Sharik is a Bangalore boy who has collaborated with musicians from Paris and is part of Bonjour India Festival. It was quite good. Before the show had started I noticed a piano, a double base, a set of acoustic drums and a pair of tabla on stage. That's when I stuck to the place, inquired about what's going on. The troupe did sort of jazz type of music. The most refreshing thing was the total acoustic setup. And my kid was amazed to see how my violin has grown up so big!!

Interested people may check out the following events in Jan at various places in Bangalore. All the events are free and you may have to just collect the free passes from Alliance de France.
  1. Lyric Opera Concert: 8th Jan, Alliance de France Auditorium, 7:30pm
  2. Jazz by China Moses: 12th Jan, Hotel Royal Orchid, Airport Road
  3. Awek's Blues: 17th Jan, B Flat Bar, Indiranagar, 8:30pm
