I first came to know of this musical show by one of my American friends who was a participant in it. When he was interviewing me for his PhD. research, he showed to me a musical magazine called SPIN with this show’s photograph, which he appeared in. Instantly, I had an idea to write an article about this concert according to the Astrological view, because Astrology is one of my favorite subjects and I also practice it.
This 77Boadrum performance was held at the Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York on [19.00 (24h)] 07.00 p. m. 07th July (07) of 2007. 77 drummers participated in this. They planned to continue the show for 77 minutes, but it continued for more than that.
In European countries and in Asian countries, people believe that the number 7 is good and sometimes it is bad. They also have concepts such as “lucky 7 [in Astrology]”, “7 letters of music [in music]”, “7 types of Women [in Buddhist teachings]”, “Sapta (7) Watha Pada [7 kind of good behavioral practices used by the Buddhist monks]”, “Sapta (7) Aryan Dhana [7 noblest property in Buddhist teachings]”.
Now that we are aware of the significance of the number 7, we can turn to an explanation of the horoscope for this 77Boadrum show.
