Or respect those who are (for real) associated with Indian music? I guess I should ask that to the guy who was headbanging to the Wadali brothers. Yes. Headbanging. If you know who the Wadali brothers are (think Rangrez, Tu Maane Ya Na Maane), you would know how appalling it is. It’s not SOAD, my boy. You should get something for this disorder of yours. Or should I ask the very excited group of Sikh gentlemen who decide to perform a graceful piece of Bhangra for entertaining the crowd as the brothers sang? Or should I ask extremely polite gentlemen who decided to shout out “Jai Mata Di”, and “Anna Tum Sangharsh Karo” to pay their respect to the acclaimed artists on stage? I guess we deserve ‘Chikni Chameli’. Let it be the new ‘Indian’ music.
The Wadali brothers performed at the IP University campus, Dwarka on 2nd February, 2012. By the time they finished (around 8.30 PM), less than 150 people remained.
