A tribute of Simon and Garfunkel by Ananth Menon and Vedanth Bharadwaj.

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel were childhood friends who learned to harmonize with each other and went on to become one of America’s favourite musical acts of the 60s, and their songs remain popular to this day. They also released a single called Hey Schoolgirl under the name Tom and Jerry which saw a modicum of success, but after the poor reception of their debut Simon and Garfunkel album Wednesday Morning 3 am, the duo disbanded, only to reunite year later when a remix of the track The Sound of Silence achieved chart success. Plagued by personal issues and artistic differences, the duo finally parted ways four albums later in 1970, with 10 Grammy Awards to their credit. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 1990.

Ananth Menon is a guitarist and singer from Bangalore. He was part of the popular rock band Galeej Gurus and currently performs in the acoustic trio By2 Blues. Vedanth Bharadwaj is a singer, songwriter, and music producer from Chennai. He runs a recording studio there called SaMa Studios. The two first met in boarding school, and shared a mutual interest in the harmonies and guitar, and consequently also shared a common obsession with Simon and Garfunkel’s work. They reunite again 20 years later to reprise their S&G repertoire. Their set will comprise of some chart-topping favourites and some lesser known tracks that were released by the legendary duo.
