      You are no stranger to either western or Indian music… πŸ™‚

      I think you would just love these amazing guys performing with a Sitar, right πŸ™‚

    • Hello Dalo,

      Really sorry for the late response, it’s been over a month πŸ™‚

      When I saw this wall art, created by an anonymous artist, I could easily identify MJ but the other two were quite unknown to me.

      But as I saw the passionate comments from people, I searched for Marley and Hendrix. This really opened up, a different kind of music I was not used to, but simply wonderful πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you are doing great πŸ™‚

  1. It’s funny to read the comments. I recognized Bob Marley immediately, then Jimmy Hendrix…and I had to think awhile about that last guy… ha ha then I got it. But to read the comments, many people recognized Michael Jackson first. It’s a beautiful concept: to bring them together. Wish I could buy tickets to that show.

    • Yea, that would really be an awesome event, with the three greats performing together πŸ™‚

      To be frank, I could identify only MJ when I saw this piece of art on a wall.

      I had to wait for the comments to identify the other two greats, and now I started listening to their music as well πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much for stopping by and it took quite a long time for me to reply πŸ™‚

    • I think so…

      I was just taking a stroll in Fort Kochi, the old part of the city and noticed this.

      I heard that, there are many interesting images like this, is seen in this area, and the person behind is still not revealed his identity.

      People love this work anyway πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much for stopping by and have a beautiful day ahead πŸ™‚

  2. Bob Marley on the left and MJ on the right. The middle one looks familiar but I can’t put a finger on it…but I see the commentors are saying Hendrix. Musical legends.

    This is a great drawing on a wall. I am assuming you saw this in India. Seems that Western music is very popular over there, and in Asia in general. From the art, I gather that these three musicians are very well known in India…wearing what looks like Indian cultural attire.

    Never knew art as good as this exist in India πŸ™‚

    • Mabel, if you google art and India, you would be overwhelmed with the amount of information and the variety you would find πŸ™‚

      But, this one is created by an unknown artist who paint at night at random places in Fort Kochi, the old colonial part of the city.

      I was there is December for an art festival (you can find the details here, “http://kochimuzirisbiennale.org/ ) and found this work by chance.

      As you guessed, western music is quite popular in India, and I used to listen hit songs of MJ while in school.

      But the other two greats are unheard of and only now, after this post, I could explore their music πŸ™‚

      • You are welcome, Sreejith. My New Year has started in a painful way, yet joyful one. My Dad just passed two days ago. His suffering is finally over and he is now HOME where he has longed to be for a long time. I have gained another “angel” now when I use my camera, for he himself was an artist and a musician. More magic, more so then ever, will be coming to Petals. (((HUGS))) Amy

  3. well I recognized Hendrix first – and then MJ – but did not get the Marley until i read the comments. fun capture sreejith!!

    and regarding Jimi Hendrix, two things –
    first – there is a museum in D.C. that has a room that is supposed to replicate the 1960’s and 70’s. You go in and they have cots on the floor and then these cool lights going all around – and the music includes a Jimi Hendrix tune – might be his song called “purple haze” but it is very cool.

    and second,
    Jimi Hendrix is famous for playing the star spangled banner – including playing it at the famous “Woodstock” event – but he also played it with his teeth a couple of times and well, he also is famous for playing a right handed (fender strat) guitar upside down – he was left handed but they only made right handed guitars in 1969 and so he flipped his guitar around and restrung it to make it left handed….

    • I thought, it would be like a cakewalk for you, Yvette πŸ™‚

      I could identify MJ instantly, but the other two are quite unknown to me.

      But this post has received so many enthusiastic responses and I started searching for more information on Marley and Hendrix and their music.

      I was really blown away by one of Hendrix’s performance, what an amazing talent!!!

      I think these two greats are part of the popular culture in your part of the world.

      But, MJ is really a global star and I am a huge fan.

      β€œThe Earth Song” and β€œNo one really care about us” are my favorites…

      • I am not sure I have heard either of those songs from MJ – but this “we are the world” song keeps coming to my mind – this old classic came to my mind the first time I was here at this post and now again – so I had to share it…

      I was in fact gone to this old colonial part of the city (Kochi) for a grand art festival and found this beautiful work of art near a boat jetty.

      The person behind this work does not want to reveal his identity and leaves a sign “Guess Who? ”
