My widening taste in music
My newfound appreciation....
I am your typical teenage girl listening to Ariana Grande and Travis Scott on repeat. So when my mom told me I was going to spend my Saturday night listening to Indian classical music I wasn’t too excited.
The songs I listen to have a rhythm and funk that make them perfect to jam out to in my bedroom. Raagas and bhajans, not so much. After some convincing I ended up joining my mom and attending the Indian classical concert in NYC. As soon as we took our seats, my eyes were glued to my watch. But I am so glad my mom convinced me to go with her because as the concert began, I was mindblown. I was in awe of the performers who were singing and playing so beautifully. Their was so much passion in their music and it was mesmerizing watching them perform.
I now have a newfound appreciation for Indian classical music and open to widening my taste in music to more than today’s Top Hits!
