The Windsong Music Festival got off to a flying start. As the sun set over the ocean, a gentle breeze had the windmills spinning. The glowing, yellow lantern Christmas tree greeted music fans as they entered the venue. Shefali Alvares was belting out Led Zepplin as the crowd entered the venue and had to decide which stage to visit first – Plugged, or Unplugged.Soulmate, clearly a cult favorite, really pulled in the crowds, getting Goa warmed up for a killer evening of Shkabang, Strings, Agnee and so much more. Finally! India’s first Live Indian Music Festival has started its journey in Goa, before traveling across the nation. All Live. All Indian. It’s about time. Windsong will not only put Indian music on the national music travel map, but is sure to make the world wake up to Indian music and the Indian Musicians that live and breath live music. On day 1 in the Plugged In section the festival witnessed: Thaalavatam, Rhythm Rush, Shefali Alvares, Soulmate, Shkabang, Strings and Agnee. And In the Unplugged Section: Aazin Printer, Neel and The Light bulbs, The Naina Kundu Trio, Airport, Elvis Lobo and Remo Fernandes.
