Tripet Garielle releases her Debut Album

British born Bollywood singer Tripet Garielle releases of her debut Album ‘Love was my idea’. Tripet Garielle recognized for her soulful voice and often referred to as the female ‘Arijit Singh’ has worked with one of the world’s most renowned Bollywood Producer’s - Atif Ali . Atif  has been making strides into Bollywood scene by working with Atif Aslam, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Pritam, Salim –Suleiman and many more.  Tripet has been rendering hits like the upbeat, urban-flavoured ‘Aa Vee Jaa’, ‘Saathiya’ and most recently ‘Kamli’ being her career-defining track that was released in 2017

She had a great experience working with Atif who let her showcase her versatile talents across a variety of genres . Atif Ali pushed her to another level. It’s very rare that an Artist will leave their whole world behind to produce an Album entirely in a foreign language (Hindi) in a foreign country (Dubai) – Tripet Garielle did just that.

Not only does she have this rarity , she is also the first British Female Singer this decade in her genre to launch a debut solo album

Her Album shows off her versatility to cross multiple genres such as Dance, Acoustic, Ambient Lounge, Romantic, and R&B. Tripet has managed to garner a strong fan base in a short span of time.  She already turned up the heat this Valentines with her latest single ‘Kho Jaaoon’ released on February.

Her musical style is Inspired by singers from all walks of life . Her dream is to be the next Shreya Goshal from the west. Her greatest musical in?uences have been Lata Mangeshkar, Shreya Goshal, arabic singer Amr Diab and her producer Atif Ali.  Her western in?uences are Alicia Keys & Mariah Carey.  This variety is also seen in all her songs from ‘Palkaan’ to ‘Woh Pal’ which have a very universal sound that draw listeners from all walks of life around the world. Although British Born , she herself decided to sing predominantly in Urdu / Hindi for which she had to study hard behind the scenes . She credits Lata Mangeskar as her accent guide.

“I am really excited to accomplish this career defining goal for my music career. I’ve worked really hard for flying back and forth to Dubai to produce the Debut Album. I want to spread all my love to more people around the world and let my Album take them into another world. Learning to sing in Urdu has been worth it, considering it’s a whole new language for me. No other language comes close to the emotions one can portray in the language of Bollywood. I love all of these songs and I know my fans will love them too!,”says Tripet Garielle.

Hard Rock Cafe1

Located in a former mill, the Mumbai outpost of the US chain of resto-bars has a mixed reputation among the city's musicians. In the first couple of years after opening, in 2006, indie rock acts were often asked to include a stipulated number of cover songs in their set lists. These days, Hard Rock Café, which hosts gigs every Tuesday and Thursday night, sticks mostly to cover bands, with a couple of dates a month spared for indie groups. Skip these gigs, and come here only for the ticketed events, when one of the seating areas is cleared to make room for a larger stage, for performances by Indian indie icons (folk-fusion veterans Indian Ocean, electro-rock superstars Pentagram), international chart toppers (Wyclef Jean, Jay Sean) or club-packing DJs (Bob Sinclair, Paul van Dyk). Be warned, though: the waiters break into a synchronised jig every time the Village People's "YMCA" comes on.


Bombay Dyeing Mill Compound, Pandurang Budhkar Marg, Worli, + 91 22 2438 2888, Hardrockindiablog.com. Open daily noon-1.30am. Performance times and entrance fees vary
