Your lockdown guide to live music this weekend, from New York’s DJs to Mumbai’s rappers

Western classical music from Sydney, late-night DJs from New York, gully rap from Mumbai. This week’s list of online Live Gigs covers a range of moods for you

DJ D-Nice

The famous New York-based DJ has been spreading the love to his substantial Instagram following (2.3 million) for a while now. As I type this out from Chennai, I can see the quiet 3.40 am NYC skyline from his rooftop, as he plays a mellow yet uplifting ‘Power Of Love’ to my screen and 1,410 others, one hand on his console and the other cradling a drink. This is the lockdown vibe I did not know I needed. Follow @dnice on Instagram to know when he will be live next.

G-shock arena and Homegrownin

Together, they have set up a ‘digital experience series’ on the homegrownin Instagram page. Performances, workshops about gaming, music, art, dance and more have been underway since June 9 and will go on till June 21. One of the highlights is a Rap 101 workshop and performance by Gully Gang’s D’evil on June 20. Check insider.in and the homegrownin Instagram page for more details.

Australian Chamber Orchestra

From simple living-room solos to full-blown extravaganzas, the Australian Chamber Orchestra is serving up offerings of Bach, Beethoven, Paganini and more through ‘ACO Homecasts’ on YouTube, and through Facebook Lives. I would challenge you to not be moved by their performances but it is nigh impossible. A different kind of treat is scheduled for June 21: Mountain, “an epic cinematic and musical collaboration between the ACO and director Jennifer Peedom”, recorded during a 2017 live performance. Visit aco.com.au to pick a performance to get lost in.

Flowing Karma

This Chandigarh band strums out covers of soft and soulful Punjabi and Hindi songs and is comprised entirely of specially-abled musicians. This Sunday, they will be performing for Chandigarh-based Amazing Workplaces in association with Chandigarh Spinal Rehab and supported by Wind Beneath The Wings. The performance will be live on June 21 from 6 pm to 7 pm at boxengage.com, so make sure you are registered and ready before the show starts.

We would love to know how you are keeping busy at home. Tell us who you are watching live at metro@thehindu.co.in
