Videos of our performance at VIE Lounge for Radio City's "Fun Ka Antenna" Launch

On the 11th of March, Shor Bazaar performed with Tatvakundalini at the VIE Lounge (in Juhu) for Radio City's "Fun Ka Antenna" (Radio City's online portal with 24*7 music streaming). We stumbled on three videos at their website. Check them out and leave comments. Although the sound/mix wasn't great, these videos are fun to watch.

(PS: Joy's guitars are hardly heard in the recording and you can hear Robin improvising solos in parts!)

Sunday Mid-Day article on Hindi bands being denied opportunities at live venues across Mumbai

This is the Sunday Mid-Day article by Lalita Suhasini about Hindi bands being ignored by live music venues in Mumbai. I, KK, am being quoted.

I sincerely hope that the venues take my critique in a positive manner and help young Hindi bands to showcase their talent.

Swarathma, Raghu Dixit, Ankur Tewari and the Ghalat Family, Faridkot, Prayag, Anhad, Talaash, Coshish, Kamaal Ke Phool, and many more - let's all join hands to fight for our rights!

Rolling Stone India Feb 2010 article

Shor Bazaar and our Savita Bhabhi was commented on by (guess who?) Palash Krishna Mehrotra in this month's edition of Rolling Stone India. We were a little late to catch up on it - that too, thanks to Anuj Gupta (OML, E-18) who showed me the article when I was getting tipsy on wine at SulaFest 2010.

Here's the article as an image.

We would like to thank Palash for being kind to us and our song. We would like to thank Rolling Stone India who have been wanting to write about Savita Bhabhi for quite some time - ever since our June release! We'd like to excuse ourselves for being so tardy in letting you know about this.
