Once a month perched in the Vimannagar corner of town, a group of musicians, poets, music theoreticians come together and play some songs and brew some poetry, both rustic and global! From local Marathi songs to Ping Floyd, this community wants to let emotions and song-making flow high!
In the last meetup at Nukkad Cafe in Vimannagar, there was an enthusiast who had come to the cafe looking to participate in Stand Up Comedy, but looking at the community of songwriters ;also went on to recite some songs at the Singers and Song Writers Community!
And lo! He also rapped in Marathi! This Singers and Song Writers Meetup session had Nivedita performing her original songs, romantic ones; Rumi-like to the charm of the audience! She also recently participated in competition hosted by a TV channel recently!

The concept of the Singers and Song Writers Community is to present original songs and provide a platform to independent songwriters to reach out to newer audiences!
Making peace is an key to the meetup as the host Subhrojyoti feels that it is through, songs, and lyrics that you bring change and lasting stability. It happens quietly and with the meetups they may also hold workshops on introduction to some instruments! He feels lets give peace a chance through intimate, intimate meet-ups!
Also, build peace communities of songs around cafes! Stay tuned for upcoming sessions of the songwriters community with RASA AUR DRAMA TIMES!
