Percussion instruments leave audience wondering

TIRUCHI: The balmy evening was complemented with soothing music that defied rules of one particular genre. One could call it a fusion but the intriguing aspect of ‘Sounds of Isha’ was that it didn’t have predominant trait of any school of music.

At the concert held recently here, the percussion instruments left audience wondering what made the music so soothing to hear. Meditation in the serene ambience was made easier as the alternate fast and slow pace of the music sent devotees in ecstasy.

‘Sounds of Isha’ is the home grown group of musicians of Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev. The music, according to volunteers, was a path to soothe one’s minds and the true potential of songs was in their capability to instil an element of eternal silences that touches the core of the human being. And so it was at the concert where instruments were balanced melodically with the deep voices of the singers.

‘Songs of Isha’ is part of ‘Project Green Hands,’ a grassroots level ecological initiative in the State, that aims to reduce ill-effects of deforestation by mass sapling planting across the State.
