The idea behind “The Universe of Sound” was to encourage a dialogue between artists and audiences. The three basic concepts of music – melody, rhythm and harmony serve as cornerstones for the discussion, guiding the performances and discussions on each day. Accordingly, we have Shubha Mudgal performing and explaining the concept of melody, Eastern Flowers, a German ensemble performing and demonstrating the concept of musical harmony and the iconic Dr Vyjayantimala Bali guiding us through the complexities of rhythm.
I participated in a group song today for the topic Harmony. It was by the students of PSBBKKN and LadyAndal Schools. We sang "Vande Meenakshi" by Muthuswami Dikshitar.
