The speculations of rain didn’t stop Hyderabad’s music lovers from attending a piano concert, Keys of  India, held in the city. As promised, Sharik Hasan and Anil Srinivasan made it a spectacular evening with their performance. After Chennai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad and Delhi, the duo’s last performance in Hyderabad was part of the Hyderabad Western Music Foundation’s fifth year celebrations.
Conceptualised by Sharik and Anil, the performance was an attempt to showcase classical and contemporary music that goes beyond religion and ethnic identities. Anil reiterates, “Music goes beyond borders, time, religion and other boundaries. Sharik and I would serve as good examples. We grew up in different backgrounds have been trained in different types of music and yet,    we are able to collaborate and make music together. Music doesn’t belong to anybody; it’s like air or water, it belongs to everyone.”
The duo played five themes of music including nature, romance and seasons, before ending the 90-minute concert with a bit of patriotism, by playing Vande Mataram.
