Open Mic is basically a platform for musician, poet, comedian or actors. Places like London, New York considered being the pioneer of hosting Open Mic night. In recent days, open mic has become popular in India. These days Open mics are very regular in pubs, cafes or even in bookstores.
I, Soham Bhattacharya, (The Soham), As a singer songwriter got exposure in my beginning days playing live gigs at the Open Mics. In my view, Open Mic is a great platform for any artist who wants to share their creative work. I always had this idea about organizing an open mic. When I had words about this with my friend Sumit Nandi (Owner of Bluemorph Records & Crescendo Studio), this interested him a lot and that led us working for this Open Mic Unplugged Event. I put my mind into the creative part & he puts his mind into the organizing part.
Now it’s already finalized & we are doing this open mic unplugged on 16th February 5pm at Sonarpur in Kolkata inside Sumit’s recording studio Crescendo. The set of the event is being designed as old American folk blues festival to have a cozy atmosphere. We will be featuring some of the Best Musicians from Kolkata Music scene . For More Details Check out the poster.
On that evening. we have the couple of guest performers & as well some new bands. We have Soumyadeep from the famous bangla band Prachir. Sankha Subhra Ghosh with his new band Feather Touch, who is a well-known musician from the music circuit and has played with many popular bands & musician before. Iman Sen from the well-known Bangla band Calcutta Blues as a guest performer. On that evening we’ll be discussing about the current original music scene with the musician.
Another reason of doing this open mic is to spread the original music. Independent musician need more exposures. In Kolkata we have lack of venues for this kind of music. I’m thankful to Bluemorph Records & Crescendo Studio for letting me do this.
So guys outta there, Mark your calendars.
Join the Open Mic Unplugged on
16th feb, 5pm at Crescendo Studio, Landmark- Sonarpur Station….
