Maggie ( El Salvador )
The Song ‘Hymn of the Weekend’ by Coldplay – Maggie’s goosebump moment
“Hi! My name is Maggie, I’m from El Salvador and my goosebump moment happened when I traveled to India and spent The Holi Festival over there. Being in those streets and sharing that time with many people made me feel so happy and really changed my mind, and it happened again when I saw this Coldplay video ‘Hymn of the Weekend’. That is really, I guess in the same streets that I went. You see all the colors and the vibe that the song has, it makes me really happy. So happy that I went to a Coldplay concert and when I heard the song and saw the lights and all the colors, it made me feel special again and took me back to those days in India, so that’s why it make me feel goosebumps every time I hear it and I’m really happy for that song!”
Exploring the Vibrant Culture of India
Coldplay never fails to amaze us with their music, and ‘Hymn for the Weekend’ is yet another one of their masterpieces. This song is a beautiful fusion of indie and R&B styles, and it features the mesmerizing vocals of Beyoncé. But what makes it incredibly special is the music video, which showcases the vibrant culture of India.
The ‘Hymn for the Weekend’ music video is an ode to the vibrant, colorful, and diverse culture of India. From the bustling streets of Mumbai to the serene landscapes of Rajasthan, the video covers a multitude of locations that offer a glimpse into India’s rich heritage. The video features breathtaking visuals of Holi celebrations, the holy city of Varanasi, and bustling bazaars. The colorful visuals and the energetic choreography make this song a feast for both the eyes and the ears.
The music video also highlights the diversity of Indian fashion. Beyoncé’s stunning costumes, which include intricate embroidery and sparkling sequins, beautifully reflect the opulence of Indian fashion. Other scenes in the video showcase traditional Indian attire like sarees, kurtas, and lehengas. The fashion showcased in the video is a fusion of classic and contemporary styles, encapsulating the essence of Indian dressing.
One of the highlights of the video is the depiction of the Holi festival. This festival of colors is one of the most vibrant and popular celebrations in India. In the video, we see Coldplay and Beyoncé covered in powdered colors as they celebrate this festival with the locals. This scene truly captures the essence of Holi – it’s a joyous day where people come together to celebrate the triumph of love and the arrival of spring.
It also features a stunning performance by Indian actress Sonam Kapoor. Her dance moves, which are steeped in classical Indian style, serve as a beautiful bridge between Coldplay’s music and Indian culture. Not only does this add a layer of authenticity to the video, but it also showcases the beauty of Indian classical dance.
