Motta Maadi Music
February 8 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PMRs300
MOPA Foundation presents Mottamaadi Music in six cities over Feb-Mar 2020, starting with a special show in Chennai on 8th Feb, to mark Mottamaadi Music’s 2 nd anniversary. Motta Maadi Music, started by Chennai based sound engineer and musician Badhri Narayanan Seshadri and his bandmates, began as a jam session on the terrace of his house 2 years ago.
Badri and his team provide the background music and the onus of singing lies on the audience. The theme is usually the hit numbers of a chosen film music director like M S Viswanathan, Ilayaraja, A R Rahman etc. The concept has now been transported from the rooftops to packed auditoriums. Song lists are published prior to the program and lyrics are obtained through a QR code that can be scanned at the venue onto your smartphone. This is a fundraising campaign to raise funds towards developing the first museum of its kind, for South India’s Performing Arts, in Chennai.
