The Chapel on the Mount, came alive this weekend with its annual 3-day music festival. The first day that I attended attempted to harmonize Indian classical and Western classical forms of music.
I see the Monte as offering a double-treat. There’s music for those who love melodies, and the backdrop for the sunset performances at the venue makes it a treat for photographers!
Performances are staged in the chapel and in the courtyard. The first day displayed a fusion between the guitar (Manuel Leao) and sitar (Ustad Chhote Rahimat Khan)
That’s Manuel Leao, who humorously said, even if the audience didn’t have a good time, the mosquitoes sure did!
This was followed by a mesmerizing violin and piano recital by Pheroze Mistri and Delia Varga inside the chapel.
The leaves would not have been as green without the clever light effects 😉
