GrapeGuitarBox live at Bootlegger.

GrapeGuitarBox aka Teenasai Balamu is an indie musician based in Bangalore, India. She explores the alternative side of pop by interpreting popular songs in her own style, which is often very different from the original itself. The genre of her music would be described as indie/pop/acoustic.

Teenasai, now a 23-year old, has been playing the guitar and singing since she was 15. A lot of her influences include not only indie/pop artists of today like The Lumineers, Angus and Julia Stone, Ed Sheeran, but also teenage throwback artists such as Linkin Park, Green Day, Simple Plan, and yes, even the Backstreet Boys. One of her greatest influences has been Tamil music, more specifically, the work of AR Rahman.

With her music, Teenasai wishes to create a space safe from labels, judgement, and discrimination; a space for all the misfits. She looks forward to collaborating with different kinds of artists in order to discover new sounds.

She’s been featured on media outlets such as Rolling Stone India, The Hindu, Deccan Herald, Deccan Chronicle , The Indian Express, N earFox , Planet Radio City , M TV India , The Inkline, and Humans Of India as one of India’s upcoming indie artists. She has also performed as an opening act for artists like Prateek Kuhad, Harish Sivaramakrishnan (of Agam), etc.

An evening of Standup comedy at Atta Galatta.

Atta Galatta presents An evening of Standup comedy with Ahmed, Kritarth and Satish

Ahmed Shariff made his stellar debut in show business at the tender age of 5, when he played the role of a tree in a kindergarten play. Critics said his acting was wooden and Ahmed took it as a huge compliment. He is one of the early players in the scene and has hundreds of shows under his belt, having performed for clubs, pubs, auditoriums and corporate clients all over the country.

 

 

Kritarth Srinivasan, 50% Tamilian, 50% Malayali. In other words, 100% confused. He found his calling and love for stand-up comedy after a brief stint with engineering. He brings energy and charisma to the stage and loves making fun of everything under the sun.

 

Satish Perumal, considered as one of the best host-comics in Bangalore, is a comedian with close to 600 shows under his belt. Born and raised in Bangalore from a South-Indian defence family, like any other guy, Satish is a cricket fanatic and aspired to play cricket for the nation but his father, Mr. Perumal, wanted him to be an engineer. Education came at a slow pace to him and hence it became a sticky wicket to bat on at home but he never deterred from the umpteen number of bouncers delivered by his father. Satish then went on to complete a Master’s degree in advertising and a subsequent career in the same. Satish is a part of Bangalore’s only comedy collective – The Puncher Shop. His biggest inspiration to do comedy is his mother.

Tickets to the event is priced at 249/-

The Role of an Artist in Conflict Area A talk by renowned artist Veer Munshi.

National Gallery of Modern Art, Bengaluru in collaboration with Ananya Drishya organizes “The Role of an Artist in Conflict Area” A talk by renowned artist Veer Munshi

About the Artist
Born in Srinagar, Kashmir, Veer Munshi studied painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts, MS University, Baroda (1981). He has addressed a range of subjects in the course of his artistic career and has been conducted in several cities, including Baroda, Srinagar, Bombay and New Delhi. But exile remains his most fundamental condition and preoccupation. Munshi has essayed variations on the self-portrait; he has explored the possibility of revitalising the genre of portraiture by means of playful, irreverent allusiveness. He has studied the effects of schismatic ideologies and the politics of violence across the planet, and reflected on the wages these exact on the trust and affection that bind individuals and communities together. Savouring the experience of travel, he has released himself towards the cultures, image-making practices and political situations of diverse geographical locations.

And yet, overtly or through camouflage beneath other concerns, Munshi returns to the key crises of displacement, disorientation, and the loss of shared assumptions of belonging. While he may have perfected the art of masking melancholia with wry humour and softened the edge of self-inquiry with self-irony, the artist remains unremittingly aware that his present is an uncertain transition between a lost homeland and a future mined with shocks and bleak epiphanies.
