New Music Monday: Shama Hai Jali ~ SANAM

This weeks new Music Monday release, is a patriotic one from the band SANAM. The song Shama Hai Jali is an original release, and is in aid of India’s independence day. The song is aiming to give the message of hope for a better country.

The video has been shot in a different style, as compared to previous videos from the band, and we are also seeing them without their musical instruments this time. While watching the video, you can clearly tell just how passionate the boys are about their country, and the seriousness reflects in the composition of the song too, which I feel is one of their best original compositions so far. They have shown people from all backgrounds whilst keeping the air of patriotism strong. It is also a nice touch to see the Hindi-English subtitles that have been added to the video, as this may help the song reach a wider audience.

Check out the video below and let me know if the song touched you too!

New Music Monday: Caught in the Middle by Anastacia

This week, I am sharing the Music video of the brand new single Caught in the Middle by Anastacia. Anastacia is one of my all-time favourite female artists, and this new single is taken from her forthcoming album Evolution.

Her last album was Resurrection which released in 2015. Her new song Caught in the Middle, is not your typical Anastacia song, yet it has a catchy hookline and melody, and presents the strength of her powerful vocals. The video has a mysterious/fantasy vibe to it, and it flows with the song very well. I love Anastacia’s outfits in it, and it is also really cool to see her riding a horse!

The song talks about a difficult point in a relationship. I know it will definitely become a favourite of mine, and I cannot wait to listen to the full album of Evolution. Check out the video of Caught in the Middle below and do share your thoughts about the track!

New Music Monday: Life’s about to get Good – Shania Twain

This weeks new Music Monday post features one of my all-time favourite female artists Shania Twain. I do love a bit of country Music, and luckily for me, Shania is back with her brand new album aptly titled Now.

She recently released a track from the album which is called Life’s about to get Good. The song is a feel good tune with a catchy hookline, happy beats and motivational lyrics. The song primarily talks about moving on after a heartbreak/broken relationship. The video reflects the songs lyrics in a happier light, as we see a team of people aiming to give Shania a makeover in preparation for the good that is about to come her way.

The song has definitely become a new favourite of mine, and I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the album when it releases!

Check out the video below and let me know what you think about this weeks new Music Monday!

New Music Monday: Neele Neele Ambar Par ~ SANAM

This week my new Music Monday choice, is the SANAM version of the Bollywood classic Neele Neele Ambar Par. The song is originally from the Bollywood film Kalakaar, and has a wonderful combination of melody, lyrics and guitar rifts.

The band SANAM, have done a tremendous job with the song, giving it a modern uplift, whilst keeping its melody stronger than ever. I did have high hopes for them focusing a bit more on the guitar portions of the song, but overall they have done a fine job, with Sanam Puri sounding like this song was specifically created for him to sing.

Check out their video below, which was filmed during their recent tour in Suriname.

New Music Monday: Phir Mohabbat and TSeries Mixtape

June is proving to be a relatively good month for the world of Bollywood Music. This week, I will be talking about 2 new releases from Music label TSeries: Phir Mohabbat Acoustic version and the very first TSeries Mixtape featuring singers Neha Kakkar and Mohammad Irfan.

Singer Jubin Nautiyal is becoming increasingly popular day by day, and this soulful acoustic version of Phir Mohabbat, adds another feather in his cap. I always love to see a singer with a Musical instrument, and so it is very refreshing to see Jubin perform the song with his acoustic guitar. This particular version of the song, features under the TSeries acoustic banner. Phir Mohabbat was originally part of the Murder 2 soundtrack and featured 3 singers on the vocals (Arijit Singh, Mohammad Irfan ans Saim Bhat) the song is composed by Mithoon. Enjoy Jubin’s rendition of Phir Mohabbat below and check out my recent interview with him for BollySpice here.

I am back with three new releases, this new music Monday!

The first one is a groovy remake of the 90’s superhit Daru Vich Pyar Milade. The song is making its second appearance in Bollywood, as it is now part of the Guest in London soundtrack, (the sequel to Athithi Tum Kab Jaoge?) and my good friend Arya Acharya has rapped on the new version of the song! The second version has been recreated by multi-instrumentalist Raghav Sachar. The song first featured on the Tum Bin soundtrack, and originally belongs to the awesome UK band StereoNation. Check out the latest filmi version of the song below:

The second release is a single called Ek Na Ek Din which has been composed by my brother Rishabh Srivastava and has been released on the Universal Music label. This is the first time that Rishabh has worked with singer Ananya Nanda. Judging by his previous songs, it seems that he is very much bringing back meaningful lyrics and strong melodies. You can check out his previous releases here. Enjoy the beautiful composition below:

New Music Monday: La Bamba ~ Sanam

I truly love writing a new Music Monday post, and it seems that the artists who will feature this week, are making another consistent appearance here at Girl at the Piano! I am of course, talking about the awesome band Sanam!

Sanam have been wonderfully consistent with their releases, and their latest is a very rare treat. They have recently released their cover of the famous Spanish/Mexican folk song La Bamba. Sanam Puri has been given the chance to show his multi linguistic skills by singing in Spanish, and bandmate Venky S also joins him on the vocals!

This is a very brave attempt from them, and risky too as they have stepped away from their comfort zone. They have done a commendable job with the song and are sure to bring back many memories to many Music lovers! Enjoy the video below and do share with me in the comments below, when was the first time you heard La Bamba?

Enjoy this classic with a modern vibe below!
