At last some decent live music is finally becoming a regular thing in the South of Goa with good musicians popping up all over the place now.
In the last 6 weeks in its lovely setting, Goa Chitra in Benaulim has staged a Beatles tribute, an Abba tribute, a tribute to ladies of Jazz (last night) and on 23rd March we are scheduled to get a Simon & Garfunkel tribute, according to Ashwin who does the sound there. All good stuff! Maybe we can we get some Fleetwood Mac tribute in the future too – there are a number of bands around playing their stuff but always Stevie Nicks is a hard one to cover.
Added toGoa Chitra I spent Wednesday night at Art Escape (also in Benaulim) in good company listening to live Blues Rock music played by more talented musicians. Apparently the Saturday night band there plays Jazz Funk fusion, the Mondays are Indian sitar and live music now is a regular occurence here throughout the season.
And then there is also the additional regular Tuesday spot of karaoke at Goodmans in Colva- so, lots of fun, dancing, live music & good company makes for a good social life outside of work.
This coming week though I won’t be getting so much of it as I am handling induction training in the evenings(5 -7 pm) so there won’t be much social scene for me this week. Of course, that is life anyway – work has to interrupt the social scene so that we can pay for the social side of life.
“Oh Well” – there will always be the music because I take that everywhere with me – playing it at home or in work and on my iPod or computer. And if I can’t play any I can always hear it in my heart and head and all around in nature. In fact it is not possible to avoid music even if you wanted to – even if it were only the sound of a “Song from the Bottom of a Well”
Did you catch the link? It was only “fleeting” after all.
