Great to see so many Rock music fans here. I love hearing rock in general and in the car, more specifically. One of my personal favorites has been Mark Knopfler. Possibly one of the underrated musicians to be present in today's world, with a phenomenal guitar sound and an equally good.

I may not understand his lyrics many a times but what amazing sound! Telegraph Road and Sultans of Swing (Alchemy live) deserve to be songs with the best solos in the world. They just make my drive so fluid every time.

The morsing, which I used to play in a very humble way, is an instrument that has close relatives all over the world. See what amazing stuff this astonishingly beautiful Eastern-European lady does.



She even has basic lessons on her channel!

Where music from this part of the world is concerned, somehow never imagined I'd enjoy anything modern. ie after Bob Marley! Somehow came to watch this and was amazed:

So AnujunaDeep and some podcasts on Spotify are my thing.

2. When I am in the mood for an exciting drive and in a very upbeat mood I prefer some EDM (Above and beyond, Ilan Bluetone etc)
Been listening to Anjunadeep 11 on repeat. canít wait for 2021 to start listening to it while driving. And A&B is where it all began for me too.

Deep House is surreal IMO. Listen to All Day I Dream and thank me later!

Have literally grown up listening to Dire Straits since the early nineties...Back in the walkman days, buying any cassette of Dire Straits album was a big event for me. Have been hooked ever since with his finger picking style of playing the guitar. As a hobby I too play finger style guitar trying to emulate my guitar hero. Sultans of swing is my favourite. So is all of his other songs including 'Brothers In Arms'.

Malayalam Rap is a sub genre I didn't see being discussed there. I wasn't aware such a thing existed till around 3 weeks ago, when Malayalam actor Neeraj Madhav (Family Man fame) released the following track:


Do check out the other 3 rap tracks on his channel with jungle & wildlife theme. Pretty impressed!

It is funny to discover an Indian singer from foreign reviewers. I had never heard of Nina Burmi before... wow, what a voice she has. Where can I get more of her music, this is a 11 year old recording.

I could have pointed to the original youtube video. But the reaction and analysis by Rick Segall after the performance is so good, I decided to share the reaction video to the song.

Darbar.org is a British organisation. They have been organising festivals and looks like they now have a subscription streaming service.

Yes, I had already checked their subscription price, 3.95 British pounds/month. I am not very comfortable giving credit card to international websites for recurring payments. So I was looking for other options.

This is true to a great extent, at least, in my case. However, I have now made a habit to discover new music whenever I drive to work.

And, I tend to use shazaam a lot while watching movies, series, or anime.

Here is a video from the Wagakki band, an amazing Japanese band, whose fusion skills are legendary.



On similar lines, I also enjoy a few pieces from Babymetal.

Talking about Darbar, here is the teacher of Nina Burmi. You can see where Nina gets it from. The woman playing the tanpura is almost crying with joy seeing the maestro at work. Just amazing...

Nowadays less remembered but never to be forgotten Louis Armstrong (1901-1971), the American jazz trumpeter and singer, had a career spanning 50 years from 1921-1971. His voice and music are one of a kind with the exclusive Louis signature. His hits were later mostly in mainstream pop charts, apart from many of these being chart toppers in the Jazz charts. There are some compositions of his that I could listen in to all day long.

Here's a video of the theme song from Hello Dolly, the Broadway production of 1964, made into a film by the same name in 1969. Incidentally, Louis Armstrong starred in this film with Barbara Streisand and others. The jazz trumpeter-singer's stage performances and his trademark smile are eye catching.

I have seen Parveen Sultana sing. Yes, very wonderful.

I'm not that much informed about Hindustani musicians, but another wonderful singer, that you might enjoy, is Kaushiki Chakraborty, daughter of Ajoy Chakraborty. She was performing here with some other people, whom I had gone to see, not taking much notice of her name on the program, not even knowing who she was --- but it was she that bowled me over
