Universe Of Sound : A Unique Music Festival

The annual offering, from MusicUniv"The Universe of Sound" is being held at Sivagami Petachi Auditorium on 17th, 18th and 19th December 2011 from 9 AM - 12 Noon each day featuring some of the top artists in India. Entry is free.
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
My mother got confused when it was announced as "Shyamaley Meenakshi". I explained to my mom that both these songs had "Meenakshi" in them and both were composed by Muthuswami Dikshitar. 
Feel free to See, Listen and Comment on the video. Happy Hearing the Harmony.
