US rappers and Indian singer-songwriters comprise this roundup of the music performances to watch online through the week
This virtual concert, hosted without passes, needs nothing but a free registration and features prominent US-based talent like rapper Wiz Khalifa, punk rock band Anti-Flag, Jazz group Funky Fly Project, and chamber music rock group Cello Fury with its signature fusion of progressive rock and classical music. The lineup comprises over 20 acts, many somewhat unheard-of but certainly worth checking out. The two-hour show starts on November 12 in the US; in India, it will be at 6.30 am on November 13.

The Chennai-based acoustic duo is as breezy and soothing as it gets.
