In India the independent musicians & music bands don’t have much fame compared to the film music. But “The Casteless Collective” musical concert organized by Director Pa.Ranjith’s Neelam Cultural Centre and Madras Records with thousands of fans changed all of that. It was a huge success & created debates.
Following that Madras Records for the first time in India is conducting a humongous musical concert named “Madras Medai”, where 7 bands and many independent musicians are going to perform. This mega concert will be held at CSI Bain School, Kilpauk, Chennai on Saturday, 19th May from 3 PM. 10 thousand people can be accommodated here & permission for this grand event is absolutely free.
The 7 performing bands are Paul Jacob feat. Chinna Ponnu, The Casteless Collective, ofRo, Dopeadelicz feat. Dharavi United, Jatayu, Siennor & Othasevuru. Folk, gaana, blues, pop, hip-hop, jazz, big band orchestra, carnatic & electronic music will be the genres. The festival team members Paul Jacob, Tenma & Santhosh say “Madras Medai will be a huge treat to Chennai people who love music.”
Director Pa.Ranjith introduced the concert members. He says “Cinema has a lot of regulations in it. Each one here have some fear on their work & continue to do it. But independent musicians have got a lot of freedom where they can express their feelings about anything. But the topic matters here. To try it ‘The Casteless Collective’ music concert was organized & as expected it created a lot of debates.
Following that this ‘Madras Medai’ is being organised at Chennai. A lot of unknown but talented independent musicians are participating. Many modern plays are happening here to approach art literature with pride and political understanding. But that doesn’t come to our knowledge. I hope this ‘Madras Medai’ will be an attempt to bring these artists into the mainstream and transform the public view of them.
There has been a view that only cinema’s music are people’s music. But that’s actually not true and this concert will break that. This “Madras Medai” is a place where you can feel the sense of life and its freedom. My ‘Neelam Cultural Centre’ will give full support to this concert organized by ‘Madras Records’.”
