Dynoman – Travels to Janaicah: Cheebay’s Imagination


Karachi, in many ways, is quite an anomaly. A dense, messy, frighteningly chaotic but ceaselessly functional metropolis, Karachi as a living entity has not been able to keep up with its artists. Partly because of structural limitations – security is an obstacle to more live shows, a circumstance endemic to Pakistan as a whole – but partly it’s also because despite the city’s risks on all sorts of business ventures, nothing’s quite yet cropped up to cater for the city’s artists and musicians.

Embracing The Era Of Digitisation


Trifling with an invigorating gamut of sounds, a musician is often presented with an interesting conundrum – one that not only dabbles with the pulse of discovering a sonorous journey but also entails exploring and creating a unique melodic spectrum. Manipulating existing contours within sounds and transforming their identity has led to artistes unearthing a new dimension of experimental music.

Songs from the Hills

The lofty range of hills in the far Northeastern corner of the country have inspired many – a region that is bound with folk songs about love, war and harmony. The Northeast is characterised by its own very distinct beauty and has given us bountiful gifts in terms of talent – be it Papon or Soulmate or award winning engineer Debajit Changmai. Here’s taking a look at where the music of the Northeast stands today.

An Exchange With Monsoonsiren


It’s war out there, in the clubs, the house parties. If your nights out are punctuated by weeks spent in, it’s likely that you suffer from the delusion that THIS night, will be a good one. Once you decide to brave the small-talk and give yourself up to the greater cause of dance, nothing matters.

The Ziro Experience: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly


The Good

Good doesn’t do the following bit justice. Sublime would be more accurate.

The music wasn’t all that was right with Ziro Festival. The wide-open landscape of the Ziro Valley, situated at about 2,300 metres is a destination worth exploring even without the festival. Lush, pond filled open expanses of paddy and millet are dotted with hills covered in pine and bamboo. In villages near the festival site, one finds raised wood and bamboo houses interspersed with the occasional pakka construction. I’m told that the local food, which features a panoply of meats, is delightful. I’m vegetarian.

Ziro Festival 2014: The Music


After four days at the Ziro Festival of Music, a few words on some of the most noteworthy acts. We’ve largely stayed away from the straight up rockers. For more on them, look to Anurag Tagat’s excellent work at Rolling Stone, or keep an eye on MTV Indies, whose Sameer Ghauri seemed to be everywhere at once in Ziro.
