Hennessy artistry celebrated the fact that the world did not end in December with two feted parties at Pasha in Chennai and at the Ice Bar in Bangalore, with both live music events hailed as contenders for the best weekend parties in the southern half of the country.

 

Both live music events featured a remarkable collection of local and international artists who showcased the best that electronic music has to offer for fans of live music in Chennai and Bangalore. Pasha, the Park Hotel’s spectacular Persian-styled lounge kick-started proceedings with an opening set by hotly-tipped Mumbai-based DJ Space Jams (Yohan Jamsandekar) who mixed it up quite nicely with a selection of house, techno and nu-disco tunes.

Fresh off the mark, live act Murthovic + Flish had fans of live music Chennai showing off their funk, as they displayed an array of musical chops, their set list comprising tunes by Nicolas Jaar as well several specially worked re-edits just for Hennessy Artistry. And fans of Chennai’s live music scene were then treated to two masterfully executed sets by Kohra (Madhav Shorey), one of the country’s top electronic music acts as well as Portuguese stalwart Re:Axis. Hennessy Artistry also ensured that fans were able to feast on more than just the music with VJ Abhi’s 3D installations and visual mapping.

The next day, it was the garden city’s turn to experience one of the best weekend parties in Bangalore. Hennessy Artistry continued its quest to bring live music fans in Bangalore the best line-ups with Mumbai’s Space Jams, Delhi’s Kohra and Re:Axis all making the trip across the border. As it often happens, Hennessy Artistry’s gigs bring out the best in Bangalore live music scene fans who gathered at the Taj early to bring about an electric vibe to the proceedings.
