BANGALORE:  On March 10, the city will witness a concert of a different kind. The sound system for Vialka, a French music duo, will be powered entirely by solar energy as part of a United Nations endorsed project.

Called 3S, the system was designed in 1999 by Cedric Carles, and has since been replicated in many foreign countries.  

The project comes to India now courtesy of Swissnex, a network of science and technology outposts run by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education and Research (SER).

Vialka is a new music guitar, percussion and vocal duo from France which combines various elements of music like Chinese folk songs, scatter rock and European gypsy tunes into their music. They will perform at Jaaga on Double Road.
