Yes, it’s our 20th Anniversary!
And we’re doing a bunch of exciting stuff to celebrate.
Systematic music education has been shown to greatly increase the intellectual, social and personal development of young children. Unfortunately, until now, it’s been available only to a privileged few. Our initiative, ‘No Wall Too High’, aims to make music education more widely accessible and affordable.
Through this programme, we aim for Taaqademy (our music school) to adopt 3 schools in the city, where our trained and talented faculty will conduct systematic music programs for children of Std I to XII. They will use a combination of their live performance skills, teaching techniques, specially created music education aids and, of course, their love for music itself to bring fun and inspiration to every class. We’re also going to provide a set of musical instruments to each school.
We hope to provide opportunities for these children to experience live performance, studio recording, workshops and more. We’re going to enable them to start composing music and even help them produce and release their own music – audio and video.
What’s more, we’re going to identify talent within these schools and give them the information, tools and techniques to become music educators themselves, allowing them to contribute to their families and communities.
But obviously, all of this won’t work without YOU. We’re crowdfunding this initiative through www.fueladream.com.
We’re playing live every Sunday at the Indigo Live Music Bar, Koramangala, from Oct 9th – Dec 4th.
Twenty years is a long time. And a lot of music. No way can we spin all those stories in ONE gig. So we’ve got TEN! Starting Oct 9th, we play every Sunday at one of Bangalore’s premier venues – the Indigo Live Music Bar. Every gig will feature some amazing talent from Taaqademy, along with us (duh!) and some of the amazing musicians who’ve guested on our shows and albums across the years.
Music. That’s what this is all about anyway, right?
For those of you who still bother to buy/stream music, you might have noticed the lacuna in our available online catalogue – album 1, thermalandaquarter.com. That will soon be available on iTunes, Amazon etc. Also in the pipeline are the 14 previously unreleased songs that we recorded before album 1. Only our alligator fans knew about them. They’re coming at you as well! Keep watching this space, and follow us on Facebook to stay updated!
