INTONATING MELODIOUS: KARAOKE 2K18
Feb 12, 2018 | Niharika Dalai
With so many musical events laid down the line of NU events, one cannot stop the musical fervor running down the veins. To keep the zeal alive, NITRUTSAV’18 hosted the event-Karaoke which was held in front of SAC gallery on the second and third day of NU from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Being one of the popular events of NU, Karaoke attracted a good number of dilettante singers. The event which was scheduled to commence at 9 a.m. was delayed by almost an hour due to some technical fault in the microphone. The fun event saw the participation of amateur singers who were provided with beats played in the background and lyrics displayed on the laptop screen. The number of participants ranged between 100-200 in the two-day long duration. The coordinators of the event provided the singers with karaokes for Hindi and English songs but a few interested people could also sing without the tracks.
The event initially faced a few problems with the sound systems and microphones. On the first day of the event, the coordinator was provided with 3 mics and out of which two were faulty. Events like Nukkad, Raphnesia, Paper dance and Karaoke were being conducted in close proximity, so there were few instances when the team had to stop the event to allow other events to continue.At times the turn up became so high that it became difficult for the coordinators to control the crowd. Moreover, some of the participants were not provided with their favorite karaokes and were quite disappointed. Apart from these issues the team was able to put up quite a successful event.
In a candid chat with MM, one of the participants shares her experience,
I had an amazing experience being a part of this fun event which gives a chance to all untrained singers to experiment with their voice. The coordinators were quite cooperative and they provided us with the track that we wanted to play.
