The Shutdown of Kafeoke

January 29, 2009

This haven on the beach on 1st Seaward Road in Thiruvanmiyur, Chennai, that was in the news for a year and a half for being a rendezvous where crooners got together, young and old came to learn to sing (better), write songs and make their own albums, where there was a Jam In The House every Saturday night - three bands performing in a combat of the bands, all this over coffee and short eats... memories that got washed into the ocean brimming in the background...

Mamma Mia! - The Musical

The musical that took Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangalore by surprise - drama, music and dance at its hilt, not to forget the heart warming songs of Abba, featuring Swapna in the lead as Donna will always be remembered as the winner that took it all.

1000 Songs In 1000 Days & A Children's Song A Day

(Location) Dubai and where ever life would take me but pegged everyday to Dubai time (Gulf Standard Time)

Soon-to-be-published audio songbook for children aged 4-12, with songs and karaokes

- A Children's Song A Day

Songs that were composed one a day through 1000 days.

A song that I was privileged to compose (in English, and that was translated in culmination of the precious initiative) for the UAE Ministry of Tolerance and Coexistence. It was an absolute delight working with these enthusiastic children studying in schools in the UAE. Many thanks to my dear friend Yasser AlGargawi who trusted me with this esteemed project. In all sincerity it took me just a few minutes to compose the song.
