THE SOUND OF MUSIC:


Lokesh Chandra, chairman, ICCR, Meenakshi Lekhi, New Delhi MP , OP Misra, director, NDMC and Shabnam Kundra, deputy director, NDMC, were spotted enjoying the dulcet tunes echoing through the park. Lekhi told us, "Delhi is a culturally rich city and the WPF festival will boost the culture even more.At this festival, it is the sound of music and the drums that will speak, not the language."

The festival kicked off with a performance by Park Eunha, drum master from South Korea and Indian artiste Vetri Boopathy, followed by drum jamming by musicians from Jordan. The second day saw the audience clapping to the beats of Gilad Dobrecky from Israel. He told us, "Indian music is well appreciated worldwide and I personally love jamming with Indian instruments like tabla, dhol and mridangam. Indian music is like a tsunami!"

CAN WE GET AN ENCORE?

Music from Hungary and Spain made Delhi fall in love with percussions on the third day as Oreka Tx and Kakics went up to the stage and spun their magic. Shouts for an encore echoed, compelling the Spanish troupe to extend their performance.
