Shashaa Tiruppati releases a new song ....

The multi-talented singer won the Mirchi Music Award for Best Upcoming Female Singer 2015 (Aye Mr. Minor) and Best Female Playback singer at Vikatan Awards for ‘Naane Varugiren’ song releases her new song "Oceans Rained". It's about a girl who has been through quiet a lot and she's confined in rooms in her mind and the rooms in her mind are used as a symbol of how she actually feels. There is a mention about how these walls are bruised and they have got bandages on them, the walls are basically her emotions hers feelings what she has been through and she talks about how relative to other people a good for her would not be a sunny day or other such things. So the girl  has hope despite being emotionally  physically and mentally abused so that is pretty much what the song is about, there is an optimism in it as well there is alot of passion, there is alot of submission in alot of ways in the past and healing in the present.

That is what the song is all about and it is coming from alot of experiences, pain and trauma  but at the same at from a very optimistic approach that the things do change and we can choose to better to have better circumstances we choose our circumstances.

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.
