Assamese Musician rocks Bangalore with Euphonic delight

While Sony Pix is celebrating the pleasant autumn warmth with August Rush, Bangalore’s premiere music institute “Eastern Fare Music Foundation” ornamented the season with an enchanting musical offering of its own on 14th August, 09. The concert “Euphony, An autumn serenade” in collaboration with Furtados Music (India) Pvt. Ltd. marked the completion of 6 successful months of the Koramangala branch of Eastern Fare Music Institute and truly lived up to its name, with students and teachers exhibiting amazing musical ability.


It was indeed inspiring to see the performers’ ages range from tots to teenaged heavy metal rockers to 50+ retro music lovers. While the youngest artist for the evening was 4 year old giving a piano recital the eldest entertainer played some popular retro numbers from Eagles, Eric Clapton and CCR.


The event was also graced by the presence of celebrated Carnatic Vocalist and Television personality Suchetan Rangaswamy who simply mesmerized the audience by rendering vocals to a song composed by Assamese Musician, Jim Ankan (owner/director of the institute) from their upcoming fusion album Veenar.


Eastern Fare Music Foundation is the first ever full-fledged music institute to be established by an Assamese in the hustling city of Bangalore. An initiative of noted Assamese music composer, Jim Ankan Deka, the institute accommodates nearly 500 hundred music aspirants from countries like Germany and China besides India. Under the able mentoring of some proficient instructors the students can learn various instruments including Guitar, Piano, Tabla, Drums, Violin, and Flute etc. The institute also encompasses musical genres like Indian and Western Classical and is now delving into Carnatic Music as well.
