The fun is on the terrace, as Pritish Soundararajan presents a forum to jam and network
This Sunday, the terrace at Padmagiri Apartments in T Nagar will turn into one of the most unique musical platforms in the city. The brainchild of Pritish Soundararajan, a music-lover, entrepreneur and freelance marketing consultanta��who splits his time between a start-up in Bengaluru and his musical interests in Chennaia��Terrace Jamming is a free forum for singers and musicians to jam, display their talents and network. a�?The possibilities are endless,a�? says Soundararajan.
How did it all start? a�?I was travelling across Europe and saw guys jamming and having fun with music on the streets; and I thought why dona��t we have anything like this back home? And where better to start than on my own terrace,a�? says the 30-year-old.
Sessions are held every fortnight, with the first being held on February 18. a�?We had 40 people at our first sessiona��bringing with them instruments like the veena, guitar, drums and violina��60 at the second and 80 at the third,a�? says Soundararajan. a�?Wea��re hoping for more than 200 this time. We mainly rely on social media, radio and word of mouth to spread the word. Ita��s totally free and anyone can come join in. So far the response has been great,a�? he adds
Soundararajan is equally excited about the future. a�?We want to add more spice to the sessions,a�? he says. a�?In time wea��re thinking of making this a platform for acting and miming, too. We are also looking at expanding into Bengaluru, Hyderabad and a few other cities.a�?
