Cultural Events , Student Activities

A moment, from one of the events associated with music during the cultural festival (1983), is captured through this photograph. During the Western Solo event at Mardi Gras, participants were provided with an acoustic guitar, an electric guitar, an accordion, an electric organ and a drum set. For the western group event, participants were provided a ‘Tama’ drum set, Fender and Ibanez guitars and basses, keyboards and pedals for special effects.
The Western Music Group event was preceded by ‘camera auditions’, in which the best five groups were chosen for the finals. The auditions were a fairly informal affair that included a 15 minute playing time per team.
