Though I have been on the microphone side of the stage for most instances, I have also enjoyed being on the speaker side to listen to my favourite artists live. The concept of Live Music is amongst the most affected by the current pandemic. Till the time it is safe to gather together, it wouldn’t be safe to conduct live concerts. It has been a rough time for all the artist fraternity; trying to figure out ways and means to continue doing their work.
Creativity is kind of an inbuilt plugin in the performing arts and that has led to explore online platforms to be able to present art in the new normal. All of us in the performing arts sector are striving towards implementing the best listening and viewing experience for our audience through online platforms. I can totally understand that all of us will be missing the overall feel and ambience of attending a live concert (not to forget the vada-pav in the intermission) Nevertheless, I can assure you ONE thing certainly as a representative of the artist community : the urge with which we perform remains the same, rather might be a tad more, to be able to reach you through the gigabytes of bandwidths.
I would like to conclude with a tiny request to all art and music lovers. Please try out this new perspective of attending live concerts in this ‘new normal’ and lets spread music, love and happiness in these difficult times.
If you decide to be a part of my live concerts, I would be thrilled to meet you on the other side of the screen. Please have a look at the latest event happening here : https://saeetembhekar.com/events/
