"Childhood comes with the luxury of dreaming" says the writer & singer of the song Shashwat. Ek Ghar is like a blanket on a cold autumn day. The minute you drape it on, the feeling of warmth and familiarity starts to creep in slowly; it's touching & emotionally familiar. The track lays emphasis on the feeling of love and longing; it is about dreams and desire, like the warmth of a fireplace. Shashwat Sachdev keeps the melody simple and effective with a crescendo at the right points, and the lyrics draw a picture of pristine innocence.
When asked where he pulls inspiration from, he says " I draw my inspiration from real life experiences and people, and my restless mind of course. I’m always thinking about a lot of things, so it’s very therapeutic for me to be able to turn my thoughts into songs"
"I would like to describe my music as painting" says Sha, For me, the lyrical work and poetry in the music is very important. Every person is uniquely different and if you honestly and willingly look at it, the song comes out unique and alive.
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.
