General | Latest Info

Hailing from New Delhi, Hamza has a reputation as a pioneer of the house scene in India and one of the more innovative and exciting producers today. Hamzas diverse international sound is influenced by his strong musical background as well as growing up in India and traveling around the world, living in Paris, Boston, and New York. Early in his journey, exposure to renowned house DJs such as Terry Francis, Dave Mothersole, DJ Heather, and Danny Teneglia inspired Hamza to create his own electronic dance productions. Soon he found a unique style of house music combining deep, tribal, and funky sounds with strong world music influences. Hamza set up his own label, Wind Horse Records, to further nourish this growing production repertoire. While in New York, Hamza did his Masters in Music Business at New York University, which gave him a very strong foundation and insight into how to creatively promote his own music. Wind Horse Records, first Indian house music label, is a major part of that vision. From its first release, Wind Horse quickly earned notice and accolades from many notable fans, including Dubfire, Peter Kruder, Richie Hawtin, Quentin Harris, and Tom Findlay. Hamza has used the label to work with some of the biggest names in world music, including Punjabi icon Jasbir Jassi, Tibetan singer-songwriter Yungchen Lhamo, and David Hykes, only western vocalist specializing in sacred Mongolian chants. After additional EPs and albums from Indian artists like Vipul, Audio Units, Vinayak A, and international artists Mink and Gion, label recently celebrated its twentieth release: Hamzas debut artist album, Gitano. Hamza is also a top notch DJ, bringing his fresh sound to dance floors from New York to Portugal, Boston to Hyderabad, Paris to Pune. His sets typically start with his signature deep house sound, heavily influenced by Latin / Afro / world flavors, before developing into powerful tribal and deep, tech-house influence beats perfect for peak time. Hamzas unmistakable style, combined with many of his own productions, create memorable DJ sets that turn clubbers into instant fans and followers. Also, this combination of potent DJ sets and renowned production style has gathered interest of prominent labels outside of Wind Horse, and Hamzas releases have found homes in likes of Kompakt, King Street Sounds, Nitegrooves, and Monique Speciale. Currently, Hamza is working on expanding his base in New Delhi to include regular stays in Europe and North America to allow for global partnerships and yearly DJ tours in different parts of the world. Hamza recently completed a tour of the USA, taking him from New York to San Francisco, as well as European dates in Berlin and Porto. Hamza continued to push the envelope, experimenting as DJ through collaborations with the talented Mr. Bista, jazz vocalist providing improvised performances using voice processors and effects over deep house sets. Well-receive at labels Indian sunset parties and gigs, Mr. Bista also appears on two of Hamzas album tracks, with more collaborations yet to come.

Sailoz : National Art Treasure

During the 1970s, Government of India named nine artists whose paintings were to be treated as National Treasures. While this was wonderful recognition for artists, it also meant that by law, their work couldnt be sold outside the country, limiting their international exposure. For the next few decades, artists ' works were restricted to government museums and a few private collections. Until, in 2013, Christies included some of pieces in its first Auction in India. And now, works have been stitched together into a narrative about nationhood and identity. Works in the exhibition are remarkably diverse: they address a range of subjects, employ an array of techniques, and take shape in diverse mediums. While Roerich canvases ponder on jagged peaks of the Himalayas, Bose pen-and-ink sketches on paper depict people negotiating with nature. Abanindranath Tagore paints evocative landscapes with watercolour and gouache on handmade paper, and Rabindranath Tagore uses crayon and watercolours on paper to depict melancholic and brooding face. Yet, despite differences in styles and subjects, artists are bind by their preoccupation with rural India. They have moved away from the urban landscape, and are looking at art practice AS reflection of things around them, says Singh. Amrita Sher-Gil comes back from Paris and moved into a small village in Uttar Pradesh. Roerich comes from the West and goes to villages in the Himalayas, while Bose moved from Calcutta to Shantiniketan. Works respond to the call of nations grassroots, which was being articulate by two very important people then-Gandhi and Rabindranath Tagore. Even though Ravi Verma caters to the elite, and his subjects emerge out of mythology to great extent, he takes pains to create images that occur after he travels country, creating a pan-Indian image for his hero and heroine. According to Singh, although artists attempt to depict countrys realities, they do not seek to impose a single image of Indian nationalism. Artists themselves werent harping on about the idea of patriotism, he say. They were not preoccupied with creating visuals which would have authority, or images to which people had to be subservient. Consequently, each artist defines just one facet of India's nationhood. Individually, it would be harder to see it, because it is just one part of something larger, say Singh. But when you put all artists together, idea of nation comes through very strongly. The idea of nation is not about pomp and glory, but about everyday life and what artists see around them. Paintings also collectively point to the precarious social and cultural position of marginalised communities in India. Gaganendranath Tagores illustrations, for instance, point to misuse of social and economic clout by the rich and privileged class, while Jamini Roy conveys the hypocritical nature of Bengali priests in his rendition of Biral Tapsavi theme. Several of exhibited works, such AS Bose illustrations on Constitution of India, represent epochal moments in the life of the country.

MOSKO Teeth

From over 80 nominations across nine Music categories in this year's Radio City Freedom Awards, only six are for solo female artists or female-fronted acts. Find the latest and upcoming tech gadgets online on Tech2 Gadgets. Get technology news, gadget reviews & ratings. Popular Gadgets including laptop, tablet and mobile specifications, features, prices, comparison. I spent last week scoring nominees of this year's Radio City Freedom Awards and among things that struck me during the process-apart from the fact that hip-hop remains Indian independent music most exciting genre-was how few women were up for any trophies. From over 80 nominations across nine music categories-they also give out Awards for album art and IndieGenius of year-only six are for solo female artists or female-fronted acts. This sticks out to me because this time around-Awards recognise releases between October 2017 and December 2018-there are more finalists than ever before. In the pop category, for instance, there are as many as 15 nominees, out of which just one-Canadian-Indian singer Shweta Subram-is woman. Regular followers of this column might feel like they read something similar a few months ago when I wrote about underrepresentation of women at Indian and international music festivals. I check with the team behind Radio City Freedom Awards about how many entries they receive from female musicians. The numbers are pretty shocking. Out of 1 200 entries across all categories, only 40 were by female solo artists. That is little over three percent. Its quite possible that at this year's ceremony, not a single woman will receive an award. Thankfully, nobody is asking countrys female independent musicians to step up, like the president of the Recording Academy in the United States, which organise Grammys, do last year. Gender disparity in Indian indie scene is widely acknowledge. The reason why there are so few female nominees is that there are so few releases by women. On average, of all albums or EPs that are put out every year, between 10 and 15 percent are by female artists. In first quarter of 2019, out of 50 releases so far, solo women account for only two. Total increases to five if you include acts with female vocalists. And To six if we throw in Womens Day EP by hip-hop label Azadi Records in collaboration with She say. So, on which three of four tracks are by solo females. Yet, number of women performing seems to be increasing annually. Two popular music festivals, NH7 Weekender in Pune and Magnetic Fields in Rajasthan, have been making a conscious effort to reduce gender disparity in their bills. At their 2018 editions, percentage of solo female and female-fronted acts, when including international artists, was higher than ever before: between 25 and 30 percent. Looking at gig listings in my home city of Mumbai, proportion of music venues hosting shows by women every week is around the same.

Pacifist Greyscale Dreams

There is a thin line between the two genres, but the emotional appeal of punk is different. Heavy metal is not necessarily socio-political in nature, it is sometimes even escapisttheyre. Different cultures. Indian punk has been screaming against issues such as the state of governance and unregulated power subjugating minorities, says Sidharth, giving us an overview of the scenario into which his band's debut EP, Greyscale Dreams, is being dropped this month. Pacifist was born when Sidharth moved to Mumbai from Pune and sought out a few like-minded musicians. After spending time in the studio perfecting their sound, they hit gig circuits last year as a quartet playing what they dub as post-hardcore. In the 80s, hardcore was violent and led to negative stereotypes in music. Were more 90s orient; time when bands like Fugazi and Helmet open up style to incorporate wider emotional spectrum, say vocalist, about their sound, which would be interesting for punk listeners and metalhead alike. Leaning on the popularity of heavy metal shows, theyve traveled to cities like Bengaluru and Hyderabad to play alongside death metallers Godless and sludge act Dirge.

Prabh Deep KING

Followup to his 2017 breakout debut LP Class-Sikh, new Delhi rapper Prabh Deep's EP KING is a record that isnt afraid to keep switching up sonic palette. Transitioning from dark trap and bass blends of his first album to smooth jazz hooks, melodic vocals, eclectic basslines, guitar riffs and groovy synth with KING, rapper reinvented his sound with a self-produce record. Bringing bassist Harshit Misra aka Hashbass and keyboardist Archit Anand on for the semi-autobiographical Maya, first single from EP, Prabh Deep surprised listeners with just how experimental he could get. The rapper wasnt lone wolf either on KING, getting fellow Punjabi rapper HRJS to lend vocals on groovy Khat and harmonization by Tansolo on melodic KING. One thing that didnt change? Rappers evocative socio-political commentary, proving once again that Prabh Deeps voice wouldnt be lost in a sea of trends.

SkyEyes - SkyEyes

Meanwhile, galleries are grouping together to make it easier for harried collectors to browse for art. Art Platform India, which goes live on September 2, is a partnership of around 13 galleries from across the country, who have come together to accent their visibility. They hope to appeal to a wider audience with a choice of works, with follow-ups being done at a personal level. During lockdown I realise we all need collective effort and that was how the idea of this Platform was born, say Sharan Apparao, of Chennais Apparao Galleries, who is showcasing the work of artist Alwar Balasubramaniam, known for playing with dualities of presence and absence. Alwar Balasubramaniam, limit from Unlimited II, 2000 | Photo Credit: Apparao Galleries This format accessibly brings the latest in contemporary Indian Art to viewers in comfort of their own homes, add Bhavna Kakar, founder-director of Delhi-base Latitude 28. They are currently hosting a Waswo X Waswos exhibition of staged hand-paint photographs made collaboratively with Rajasthani miniaturists Rajesh Soni and Shyam Lal Kumar. Primary market has become more transparent online and helps buyers make informed choices, shares Tunty Chauhan, director, Gallery Threshold. Showcasing artists like Anindita Bhattacharya, V Ramesh, Indrapramit Roy and Rahul Inamdar, Delhi Gallery focusses on art ideas and discourse. While online space has been well received by most, there is expectation and yen that younger galleries and those located outside metros would ALSO get to dip into collaboration. General criticism floating around Art vine is that the same names appear to crop up even online. One would expect that online presence would shift focus bit from city-centric galleries and artists, concludes Kolkata-base curator Nanak Ganguly.

This confluence provides an experience filled with a lush palette of psychedelic and groove filled songs.
