The much anticipated ‘Storm Music Festival,’ opened on Friday at Napoklu in Coorg. The music festival which was supposed to begin in November last year was postponed due to heavy rains in Coorg. There was an overwhelming response from the crowd who had come from all over the world to witness this event.
The music fest was opened to the tunes of Kodava Valaga, the traditional Kodava music by the Venkateshwara Vadhya Goshti a 9 member Kodava music band in Coorg. The crowd was stunned to the local band’s performance as they played only with the traditional Valaga, Tabala and drums without using any electronic instruments.
The Eco-friendly steps taken up by the organizers and the facilities set up at the Storm Music Festival was appreciated by the crowd and the bands. Trash cans were placed to prevent people from littering the venue and a separate gallery was set up for drinkers and smokers.
