Rap, rock and the ever-popular gaana come together in Kilpauk this Saturday. “We are trying to combine rock and rap and gaana here,” explains Dolly. The stars of Saturday’s concert will be young rap artistes from the slums of Dharavi, Mumbai, as well as traditional gaana artistes, some of whom have already begun making their mark in Tamil cinema. But gaana, which has been around for much longer, is not something people usually associate Madras with. It is this shortcoming that the collective is trying to correct, not only by providing a platform for gaana, but also by ensuring that is accessible to everyone.
