Birthdays, believes Bruce Lee Mani, guitar player and vocalist for Thermal And A Quarter, are to celebrate happiness.
“But we’ll save that for tomorrow,” he says on his 33rd.
Every day should be a happy birthday for love. As artists, that should be the mission fuelling our activism — to spread the message of love and peace in the world to everyone, to bring estranged people together, to shape the change that lies trapped inside our hearts. And not lose ourselves in cynicism.
If need be, we must cross one line to draw another.
Last year, Bruce wrote the lyrics of ‘One Small Love’ and put it to music with his band, Thermal And A Quarter. Join him and Thermal And A Quarter with other artists, speakers and thinkers on the song’s first anniversary.
‘One Small Love – Bangalore for Mangalore’, an assertion of liberty, love and happiness, celebrates the birthday of love.
Feb 14, Opus in the Creek, Whitefield Road, Bangalore.
Be there to draw the line. And spread the love.
