Zubin Mehta concert


Making music in place of war

September 15, 2013 3:10 am

Last week when the Zubin-Mehta led Bavarian State Orchestra staged Ehsaas-e-Kashmir concert in Kashmir,the effort drew praise and criticism in equal measure. As part of the protest,a rival concert,Haqeeqat-e-Kashmir,was also staged on the streets of Srinagar,bringing the spotlight back on music as an effective cultural weapon in zones of conflict. From the Berlin Wall to Tahrir Square,music has,historically,brought people together to make peace not war.
