In these unprecedented times, THE Park Hotels is virtually bringing alive the energy and vibe of India’s most happening nightclubs and liveliest bars. THE Park Hotels known for being a leading player in India’s nightlife and entertainment business since more than 50 years, has started LIVE entertainment for its guests and patrons sitting at home during the extended lockdown.
As people are now losing the count on days, THE Park Aqua Sunset has been released last month to set the weekend mood right. THE Park Aqua Sunset is a mixtape series releasing every Sunday at 5 PM on MixCloud and SoundCloud. A specially curated tracklist of a music extraordinaire is introduced every week. The genres range from electronica, downtempo, chillout, house, and world music – by the finest artist collective line-up from across the country. It brings the oomph of the crazy pool parties from the signature alfresco poolside Aqua at THE Park.
Swarup Varma, VRIDIAN and Abhi Meer have released their curated tracklists till now. Celebrated artists including Xirer, Aaryan, Stalvart John, and Praveen Achary are going to play in the weeks to come. The artists are well-known, home-grown and heavyweight electronic music producers with a knack of musical diversity. The first tracklist by Swarup Varma organically made it to the ‘Top 3 track list in India for Chillout category on MixCloud.
To bring the heady atmosphere, passionate live performances and bags of rock ‘n’ roll attitude, the iconic Someplace Else from THE Park Kolkata is going LIVE every day at 8 PM on its Facebook page with India’s most celebrated musicians and artists.
