Get ready for some Japanese music as this month’s edition of SecSat Pondy brings the band GLEAM for DREAM (GfD) from the Kyoto-Osaka region in Japan. GfD will perform original songs in English and Japanese and a few international rock covers, said a note from the organisers. The band is also known to have a strong social conscience and advocate environmental causes through their music, said organisers. Also up in this edition is Arul Mani with his troupe MAKKAL ISAIKALAM, who will present Tamil folk music of different styles. The Uzwl Suspx will be the third band, and will play some of their new experimental lounge music.

SecSat Pondy, held by the Department of Tourism jointly with event management company Scene, will be held on the Beach Road near Tourist Information Centre at 7 pm on February 14.
