Namaste! Dear Music Lovers, Queens are keen… The idea of royalty is quite ancient. Recently I wrote about mothers as objects of our admiration. The much-promoted and press-covered British Royal wedding of

Mothers Rule

Mothers Rule

Namaste, Music Lovers, Each of us has a mother or we wouldn’t be here. So thanks to the annual celebration which in the modern era may have originated in Europe and was later commercialized in the United States but surely has a much older eastern origin, what we call Mother’s Day was expanded globally by […]

Singers Need Good Air!

Namaste, Dear Music Lovers, Today is yet another smoky day in Mumbai. I hope that wherever you are, there is less air pollution.

While it has been known to “come in like gangbusters” and inundate roads and neighbourhoods (not to mention farms, homes, schools, businesses and gardens) with abundant rains, one seldom knows precisely when the rains will arrive.

Harmonicity – Synchronicity of Singers?

Harmonicity – Synchronicity of Singers?

By the way, this post blew up my web browser repeatedly while this was prepared by my web team; my longest post to date is LOADED with information, lol. As “the Internet changes everything,” the so-called commercial music industry is also undergoing a rapid evolution around the planet. I see and hear a number of […]
