Bangalore Music Scene - Our Take

Bangalore Music Scene - Our Take

Bangalore's music scene has taken its course to build and grow over the years. Fifty years ago, Bangalore was a pensioner's paradise with peace and calm. The live music scene was set, and you could listen to any genre you liked. Around the 1970s, these live concerts gained traction, and people performed in parks. These bands were responsible for the "Indie" scenes in India. However, the authorities thought this promoted western culture in India and stopped the events.

However, Bangalore has contributed immensely to the Indian Jazz scene. Recreational clubs and restaurants had weekly gigs and in-house bands. Some of the bands have performed all over the country. Today, Bangalore hosts some of the best concerts, and many renowned artists come to Bangalore for their gigs. There are several places in Bangalore you can go to if you love live music!
