Jazz Rock

It is believed that the very first legendary jam session with The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix took place in Goa also. So the revival which Great Live Music presented was like going back to the roots of Rock that had been started by those legends. For six days the perpetual and expected Trance parties were replaced with a Jazz & Rock Festival, a welcome breadth of fresh air for Goa.

The Jazz Rock festival was an excellent opportunity for Russians to experience real Indian contemporary music as well as enabling Indians to understand Russian Jazz and Rock music. Prem Joshua, Masha I Medvedi, The Matrixx, Ankur & Sidd, Arvind Haldipur and many others came together for this one of a kind celebration of music.

The GLM was held in several different venues in different parts of North Goa. The Jazz night was held in Marbella (Ashvem), the promo concert at the famed Saturday Night Market, rock performances at popular Curlies (Anjuna), Reggae and Fusion in Teso (Siolim) and the grand Jam session in Calangute Tower (Calangute).

But the real action, the real surprise and the real breath of new live music that GLM presented for sure happened at Curlies! The audience accepted and enjoyed with great interest, warmth, and enthusiasm Russian musicians not known to them before, especially Masha I Medvedi who became the discovery of the festival.

For most music lovers this was one festival that they will be looking forward to and according to the organizers, GLM 2014 is already in the pipeline!
