Armaan Malik to be seen as a Voice Coach...

Bollywood singer Armaan Malik, who is soon to be seen as a voice coach of a musical reality television show, says that the personality of a singer should reflect on the voice and singing.Talking about how he is going to groom young participants of "The Voice", Armaan told IANS here: "I strongly believe that a singer's personality should shine through the voice, the singing and that is what I am going to emphasize on. If a singer has an introvert personality, I would rather suggest focussing on more soft, romantic numbers that he/she feels comfortable to sing."
"Being introvert or soft spoken is not a weak point. At the same time, singers who have high energy would be good for party songs and high energy performance. I know people suggest trying opposite kind of singing to experiment. But I strongly believe that the new talent should find their comfort zone and establish themselves there and then should start experimenting."
The 23-year-old playback singer gained popularity with many super hit songs like "Tu Hawa", "Naina", "Main Hoon Hero Tera", "Hua Hain Aaj Pehli Baar", "Sau Aasmaan", "Dil Mein Tum Ho" among many others.While achieving success at a young age has its positive side, according to the singer, initially, people did not take him seriously because he is young.
He said: "I understand when your talent has not been considered seriously because you are young! When I decided to be part of the show as a voice coach, people said why should anyone take you seriously as you are too young to be a teacher... I am not going to bore the participants of the show with heavy knowledge, but tips to improve."He will be coaching young talents in the show, alongside celebrated names like Adnan Sami, Kanika Kapoor and A.R. Rahman will be the "super guru" of the show. 
"I understand how it feels to be a young talent and what it takes to find ground in big music industry. So I think since I am young, the participants will find a connection with me for better," he said. "The Voice" will air from February 3.

Best Jazz Venue in India

Those of you who have been around from the 1960's through the 1990's will remember the vibrant live music scene in almost every starred hotel in India. Those were the days when you walked into a nightclub like 'Rendezvous' at The Taj Mahal hotel and 'Supper Club' at the Oberoi Sheraton in Mumbai to see curtains going up on a band that was the prime focus of these outlets. Every seat in these restaurants allowed an unobstructed view of the band that performed every night on resident contracts. Today all this has disappeared thanks to some ridiculously high entertainment taxes on live music. Today, non off these hotels have complete bands playing save for a few that feature small duos or solo singers. The Lodhi in New Delhi, recently listed among the world's best hotels, decided to step in and rewind to the good old days. They got Goa's premier jazz quartet 'Jazz Junction' to move to Delhi on a resident contract and the decision has paid off in terms of footfalls generated by the band. Jazz Junction featuring singer Daniella Rodrigues, pianist Tony Dias,
bassist Colin D'Cruz and drummer Angelo Colasco began playing at The Lodhi in June 2018. Four months into the contract the band generated a sizeable following, with quite a few high profile guests choosing to celebrate their special occasion at the Elan bar where the band performs. Against all odds the rewind option proved to be a huge success and hopefully other properties around the country takes the cue to trigger a whole new revival  of live music.
