[inaudible] right. to i've been so good to know so the committed this form of arrested. and people out on the streets. the protest is reached our doorstep. so in whichever way you know i'd like i'd like to attempt to contribute something to this [inaudible] leave. if you c't be a part of the struggles of john happening in the country. what what the meaning of culture and artistic production meaning is to kind of bring people together to be a voice organ? off off the people .
if you're playing the people's music. you have to find a way to take it to the people then and if that's always what a gentleman i was frustrated doing what i'm doing always. i dreamt of that i know what is something you can do when i don't want to dance can do a lo. these are things we should not only happen it's like i need music venue this should. i would in in in my jeans this is something which i want to be able to contribute to our middle of a gathering of protest space that i think there is a space with this could be a vue. we first to address the restrictns. was to go back to the hard already knows it which is

turn it on is this. land with a this would be the easiest way to say this is sam. and then the other. one what channel brings a why do you feel the need to stay home with the fly is important to understand that. because if the string out wrong things will go back [inaudible] my day. course menu can can somebody with this man. it doesn't help. so reload students only. something that start as an idea. suenly becomes a reality and
the down physical system that you're on top of imagine this a green seven different places. setting it up people coming ago it's this no. i meant changes from number four if a -- ever this is sports and writers and singers who are the four and there. was the movie simply select the most threatened because tir rds have found when the supreme liquids and i'm not even sure i wanted to be a success because if it is then backing me more troubles. as a mother as williams read consumer.
alright but isn't all. apologies to everyone trying to sleep. i mean is that right. this is the final ten more minutes all music. it goes like this. i don't remember who shot over from india offer talk. around the world. the main channel that lies before us is. where are we going to ban all people going to react? you know how are people going to react if i take the system to a protest space or to a street corner. and now people going. to letoose and dance with us and and get it or people going to be like yo. you know. be dismissive and black who's this privileged.
we continue to test it and i know how to operate the system. and we played a gig to launch i. i'm not too long after i i'm going to call from my old university and seamsere asking us to come. and bring t system then to support their comrades were on hung strike [inaudible] one this is the and so it doesn't
look like this. you get it in order. i thought that it. no you nervous man i mean the golf is nervous because you want to be relevant and you want to be able to communicate and create meaning and all. set to indoor you never know you know like what sometimes the wonder like. can you do that things are making music and i kind of been doing this whole life i love it but you still have a have a dot you know. for this reason. the king on the revenues and if there's no music in the convention if the condensed wit. and what this is supposed to be also fun with. so then it's important for these kind of things -- these kind of medium he's been about business kind of music do you have any of the reporting party and they do a lot in the living.
in the in the beginning when i started playing that actually off everyone to sit down. which i didn't want to put ke so. i'm playing records. and i have a scene of people like sitting on the ground looking at me expectantly. whichade me very uncomfortable nine hours it wasn't working in quite the way that i want because the whole idea is that people. don't look at me look at each other and join us at right. you don't have to watch them on here. i want you guys. to each other. you know what i mean.
the music is all but on the june was confidence that our do good work. to pyed other proteins andited other venues in. reading the itching to take the system. and then finally what a johnston students from fda which is india's leading finance us to turn on the campus important. we are is all to see major protests against the government. and we'll we'll bring. on the struggle. and hopefully ought to be able to contribute some energy to their arm ran for mayor.

it would also help us communicate the music's message the audience. and with that in mind i i suggested to look at that you also get these rap was down because what they see. the the rap in hindi and marath. they have revolutionary songs and we felt that this would help the audience to connect to the show. it. mark. to mark this audition but if such you bought. well man this is rough. the work this -- manta of tough talk to women i think it's empowering them. it's important for the m. c. and it's importing falling for the people here it because look i mean a lot of the times. culture that's imported from abroad. is english culture in there sometimes is associated with it needs you know but this is not
what this music is this is get the music you know. so i think -- for people to hear things from from here it's like. it makest makes everything of everything more meaningful and rough i for you not. job needle and smashed the place apartment people feel as if it was printed in the in the bodies are moved but so much and i'm saying [inaudible] check. and i'm not. best phone there's not seven and i can. the woman known to do today's show definitely it's kind of a test for us to see all four things can cross over. how far people will connect to what we're doing and i hope that the singles from local out then? and and and the rappers and stuff when it kind of element
