Sveta is the founder of Aarohan Sangeet Gurgaon and co-founder of ‘The Baithak Experience' Gurgaon. A performer in a virtual July 9 HCL Concerts Baithak, Sveta says she is grateful for artists to have a platform in these times.

Talking to IANSlife about the challenges that the pandemic brought on to her musicianship, and how she overcome those, Sveta elaborates: "Initially the challenges were about not being able to do a live performance in front of a real audience. Nothing gives an artist greater satisfaction and pleasure than watching the reaction of audience while performing. While technology allowed seamless continuation of live concerts, the challenge was performing in front of a ‘virtual' audience and not a real one.

"But today, the world is slowly accepting the ‘screen world' with remote-working, remote-schooling, now even ‘remote-music' has become the new normal."

Saying that it was difficult to understand technology, quality of sound a good frame more so for digital concerts, Sveta emphasises that the music fraternity has been at it. "I attended various online workshops which taught us how to get the best sound for our concerts. Small steps in the direction of the new normal."
