Get Ready for a Musical Extravaganza at Orange Festival

No Comments Uncategorized

The third edition of the Orange Festival of Adventure and Music (OFAM) is back and will be held over four days from 15-18th December. The venue is the breathtaking Lower Dibang Valley’s quaint village Dambuk. The highlight of the Orange Festival this year is world famous Swedish metal guitarist, Yngwie Malmsteen, this will in fact be his first ever show in the country.

‘I’m very excited to play in India for the first time and can’t wait to see all my Indian fans and rock out to a very magical night,’ says Malmsteen. He is arguably the most technically accomplished hard rock guitarist to emerge during the ’80s. His largely instrumental debut album, Rising Force, was the major catalyst for the ’80s guitar phenomenon known as “shredding,” in which the music’s main focus was on impossibly fast, demanding licks. Malmsteen released a series of albums over the course of the ’80s and recorded at a prolific, rapid pace, continuing to play the music he loved in his patented neo-classical style.
