Month: March 2024

Ruslana – Wild Dances

With Eurovision just a little over a month away, I figured it will be good to share some of my favourites. I tend to lean towards artists that perform in their native languages but a good beat is a good beat regardless. It was towards the end of my student life in the UK and […]

Quiet On Set – The Dark Side of Kids TV

I heard so much about the 4 episode documentary over social media and finally got to watch it. I am familiar with the shows All That, The Amanda Bynes Show & Drake & Josh which I watched while growing up on Nickelodeon. I used to dream being one of the cast members and thinking about […]

Apache Indian – Boom Shack-A-Lak

Concluding my posts of artists of Indian Origin, this was a childhood favourite of mine thanks to my eldest sister. Apache Indian, born Steven Kapur on May 11, 1967, is a renowned British-Indian musician and singer-songwriter who rose to prominence in the 1990s with his unique fusion of reggae, Indian, and dance music. Hailing from […]

Shogun

Started binging on Shogun on Disney+ and am up to date. Can’t believe I am now having to wait weekly for each new episode. I usually wait until the whole season is available before starting. “Shogun” is a captivating historical drama series set in feudal Japan during the 17th century. Adapted from James Clavell’s epic […]

Noble Savages – I Am An Indian

Still recovering from my trip in India, the memories of Indian based acts reminded me of this song from Noble Savages, “I Am An Indian”. The funny thing is, I didn’t know much about the band until I started researching them for this blog post. The duo consists of a brother and sister duo, Shirin […]

Foire De Chatou

We live only a stone throw away from this Antique Fair and have never attended because of poor weather. As we had guests around, we figured it will be a great opportunity to visit together. The 106th edition of Foire De Chatou is running from 8th to 17th March. It is essentially an bi-annually antique […]

Alisha Chinai – Made In India

Being in India for the first time this week was amazing and this Friday’s post is a tribute to a childhood song that I listened to as it received airplay on Channel [V] Asia. I can’t believe I would have listened to this song in primary school without understanding the lyrics other than the English […]

Taj Mahal

I happened to be in Noida for work and couldn’t miss the chance an opportunity to visit the Taj Mahal came up. I never thought I would set foot on this magnificent monument of love and devotion. We started our journey at 6am from Noida to Agra. The journey was fairly comfortable on the highway. […]

Daler Mehndi РHo Jayegi Balle Balle

Next week I will be in India on a work trip. It will be my first time in Delhi and hopefully we will make our way to visit the Taj Mahal. So, in preparation of my trip, I was trying to revisit my memory bank of India songs that I listened to when I was […]
