Please help schedule this for this Saturday: 23rd November 2019. Write Club Hyderabad helps you pen your thoughts, spill your mind and finally make an appointment with the writer in your head. We conduct free, weekly events that foster writing. Our Meetups aim at helping writers reach their goals in a supportive, collaborative, social setting. Writing doesn't have to be all by oneself. We welcome anyone who writes, regardless of genre, language or age. We have members writing novels, short stories, poetry, screenplays, essays, school reports and more. What we do, basically: One of the members of Write Club (anyone with a participation count over 2 consecutive meetups) hosts a session. They bring forth a theme and writing exercises. We all then write to the host’s prompts and guidelines for about an hour. Once we're done writing, we read out our write-ups (optional). We also exchange feedback and constructively critique each other's works. Entry is free, anyone with an interest in writing can walk in. Bring your writing devices and we’re all set! We promise to provide you with good coffee and a super-creative conversation. We have Write Club sessions every alternate Saturday afternoon – 3 to 6 PM
The Anupam Kunapuli Trio
Fri Nov 22, 8:30 PM
Anupam Kunapuli
Three struggling - in various degrees, beings were drifting by like autumn leaves until they were gently swept into the same corner where we happened to strike a conversation.
Lo and behold! We found concurrence to weave our distinct sound through subtle yet bumpy rhythms and melodies
A little bit about us:
- Shree Anupam Kunapuli, is the noble captain of our grand yet humble musical voyage (not so humble are the crew members!). He is an experienced jazz pianist with roots in Carnatic music.
- Master Nehal Raj Pradhan, is as wayward as the northern winds gushing through the pine trees. A hint of it comes forth in his musical influences especially when he hides behind the drums.
- Sire Aritro S. Ghosh, is an angry young man whose guitar portrays the colour of his conflicts. His guitar playing ranges from subtle seaside melodies to explosively picked licks. His musical arrangements speaks much about him.
We don’t have much to offer but our music.
