New Music Monday: Introducing music composer Somnath Roy

One of my main reasons for creating Girl at the Piano was to be able to share the work of upcoming musicians who often miss out on the mainstream attention they deserve, and so after recently introducing the talented musician Marcus Corbett, it gives me great pleasure to introduce another music composer Somnath Roy (also known as Tattu).

The 2nd of February saw the release of the next SANAMOriginal SANAM Mennu. This is the first time the fab four have released an audio, before releasing the video of the song. You can stream and download the audio of SANAM Mennu on all popular streaming services.

New Music Monday: The unique fusion of Indian classical and Western music, from musician Marcus Corbett

This week’s New Music Monday post is a rather special one. I have been recently introduced to a wonderful new genre of music which is a fusion of two existing music genres, and which to some might seem an almost impossible combination to achieve, but has been made possible thanks to the highly talented musician Marcus Corbett.

Marcus is a renowned musician from the UK, who has successfully managed to fuse Indian classical music with Western acoustic guitar in order to give the listener an entirely fresh sound. Marcus has not only submerged himself into the world of Indian classical music, but has also learnt to play the tabla and sing in Indian classical style so as to better incorporate the sound in his own music. While he is an expert acoustic guitarist, he has collaborated with several Indian classical musicians who have lent their talents on his album Every Little Spirit. Check out this short promo clip, to gain a better understanding into Marcus’s sound as well as a recent interview:

New Music Monday: one song, two renditions ~ Dil Diyan Gallan

This week’s New Music Monday features one song, with two different renditions! Dil Diyan Gallan from the Bollywood film Tiger Zinda Hai has become the most popular new track that has attracted many singers and bands to showcase their own renditions of the song.

After fab four SANAM released their version of the song at the very beginning of 2018, two other versions which have caught my attention are by singers Jonita Gandhi and Sonu Kakkar.

New Music Monday: Dil Diyan Gallan ~ SANAM

Wishing all my readers a very Happy New Year! It feels awesome to start the New Year with a New Music Monday post and this time, the release is a SANAMrendition of the recent Bollywood hit Dil Diyan Gallan from the film Tiger Zinda Hai.

Dil Diyan Gallan is a light romantic track and I can clearly see how well it fits the SANAM vibe. After having a good few renditions in Punjabi (Ishq Bulaava, Garmi Di Tu, Itni Door), it is always wonderful to hear lead singer Sanam Puri sing so effortlessly in Punjabi once again.

The video has a very chilled vibe to it and we get to see the fab four sitting together with their musical instruments, which is the way we know and love them, the best! Enjoy the first New Music Monday post of the new year!

New Music Monday: Tera Zikr by Darshan Raval

As we get closer to the end of 2017, the amount of new releases tends to dip as many are saved for next year. However, I have just decided to write an almost last minute New Music Monday, for a song that has recently caught my attention, and has stayed in my mind even though it has been a month since it released. The song in question is popular Bollywood singer Darshan Raval‘s latest single Tera Zikr.

New Music Monday: Jaane Woh Kaise ~ SANAM rendition

It feels like absolutely ages, since I have written a New Music Monday post, but thankfully, there is one this week featuring the wonderful new rendition from SANAM Jaane Woh Kaise (Log Thay Jinke Pyar Ko Pyar Mila).

This classic song which is originally from the Bollywood film Pyaasa (1957) is extremely close to lead singer Sanam Puri and SANAM collectively; and from the video, it is clear that the band have taken extra efforts in executing their rendition of the song. Set in a seemingly old style house, the video sees bass guitarist Venky S playing the double-bass (instead of his guitar) Sanam Puri at the grand piano, and both Samar and Keshav with their respective instruments.

New Music Monday: Itni Door by SANAM

This week’s new Music Monday, features the latest release from my favourite Indie band, the fantastic four: SANAM. They have released one of their original compositions called Itni Door (pronounced as dur).

This latest release, from the band further enforces their status as a “boy band” (as they would be called in the West) with heaps of Musical talent, and the song accompanying video reflects this vibe too. The boys are seen in their most loved romantic avatar in the video, as Itni Door is a heartbreak song, providing all the right kind of emotions that one feels when listening to a SANAM original! I personally enjoyed the video, and like the song a lot too. It is wonderful to see the band releasing their own material while taking breaks from their renditions.

Enjoy their latest release Itni Door below, and let me know if you enjoyed this #SANAMOriginal composition too!

New Music Monday: Rishabh Srivastava

This weeks new Music Monday releases, are both from artist Rishabh Srivastava. I have shared Rishabh’s songs at the blog before, and it is always a pleasure for me to share his latest releases.

The first release is the single Aadat Nahin Hai Tum Bin with Zee Music Company. Zee Music had initially released the female version of this single with Jyotica Tangri on the vocals, and now they have released Rishabh’s version which is a treat to the ears! The song has a strong melody with meaningful lyrics which make it a treat to listen to.
