Many of us are familiar with Jugalbandi – a performance in classical music where more than one singer is involved and the notes are improvised and sung. Jugalbandi is often applauded by the audience as it takes music to the next level. But, how about a Jugalbandi with Siri?
Yes, you heard right. In this type of Jugalbandi, one of the performers is Siri – the “intelligent assistant” that enables the users of Apple devices to speak natural language voice commands in order to operate the mobile device and its apps.
Three Radio Jockeys of CLUB FM, UAE, Carl Frenais, Puja Unni and Pavithra Menon, made a video, where they have mixed beat-boxing with a Tyagaraja Kriti along with ‘jathis’. The entire creation is backed by a voice command by Siri, which is the most interesting part of it.
