Kasauli Open Mic 4-7 pm on Sundays at Hangout
Come, Sing, recite a poem, play flute and Guitar with us at Kasauli Open Mic, Jam Session at Hangout. So Every Sunday from 4 to 7 pm Musicians gather for Live Music. Jam Sessions follow up later after 10.30 pm because musicians stay late mostly. Hangout is on the rooftop of Hotel Kasauli Regency. This is the first ever Open Mic in Kasauli’s history. Next Sunday we are going to have 17th edition of this Musical Evening/ Jam session after Christmas and before New Years.
So Kasauli Open Mic is doing great, this Sunday was successive 14th since it started. Artists who had their first performance few weeks before have started singing really nice. We are so happy with the effect Kasauli Open Mic/ Jam sessions have brought. Last Sunday we had 3 Youngsters from Kasauli, and they really sang well.
Upcoming artists and Live Music
Astha Ray is a friend and an advocate in Chandigarh. She used to sing well even before but now she has picked up Ukulele and she is during great. Open Mics and Jam Sessions have brushed up her talent. All the best Astha and keep it up. Veda, Kritika (Mitthu), Saloni from Sanawar sing really nice almost every Sunday. Siddharth Kundal and Sidharth Garg, 2 guys from Delhi working online here have started singing well. Other hotels in Kasauli also give discounted rooms to the musicians performing at The Open Mic. Because of this live Music evening in Kasauli I am hoping for a new generation of Musicians grooming here in a town of British Colonial era.
When I started learning Guitar few years ago, I couldn’t find even a single guy to teach. But now, wow ! I know at least 10 in Kasauli having nice command over different musical instruments. Paras and Shaurya Chopra are amazing on Cajon. Dr. Raina does a bit sometimes with his mouth harp whenever he gets time from busy schedule. Dr. Raina also performed in a Live Music event in Vietnam on a Boat Cruise.
See you guys on Sunday Kasauli Open Mic no. 15

Open Mic, a European Concept of promoting Music
Travelling abroad and also Goa introduced me to Open Mics and Live Music. In an Open Mic you can sing, play instruments, recite a poem, act, or do anything creative. You don’t have to be a professional, but if you have a little zeal to sing or perform, this is your first step in. I never used to sing 5-6 years ago but Open Mic concept got me in to the world of music. Last year I was travelling to North of Thailand, a small town called Pie hosts Open Mics every Sunday. I ended up singing 5-6 Hindi songs among an audience of 200 and none an Indian. Many European towns still have these events.
