For a span of ten days, staring December 5, ZLB23 will be the venue ushering in the start of the musical season. Titled, Magnetic Music Season 01, the event will see a lineup of nine bands — national and international — wowing music lovers in the city.
Curated by Madhav Sehgal, Area Vice President – South India, The Leela Palaces, Hotels, and Resorts, the lineup includes musicians from different genres ranging from jazz and classical to rock and bebop.
“Designed and dedicated for people to celebrate and have a great time, this venue is not for audiences alone; artistes too, should feel satisfied performing here. The city of Bangalore has always welcomed music and keeping this in mind, we are hosting a music festival, bringing in various artistes from various genres to celebrate them and their music,” says Madhav, adding that ZLB23 is a live music venue, with musicians playing there throughout the week.
“We hope to make Magnetic Music a regular feature, hence the addition of ‘Season 01’ to the event name,” he says, adding that their next musical event, most likely to be held after six months, would be themed around folk and fusion music.
“The city demands it, our venue is designed for it; so we are using our resources to give artistes from around the world an opportunity to come and share their music with us,” says Madhav.
The event starts with German band Essence of Duality which combines jazz and Indian classical music playing on December 5, followed by Los Rolling Ruanas, a Colombian band from Bogota presenting contemporary music the next day.
