OK, so I kind of missed the boat on this one due to studying and work. But better late than never right?

In May 2011 – Director of Kidulthood, Mehnaj Huda released his latest film – Everywhere + Nowhere. Over the course of that month, Nerm Chauhan – Musical Consultant of the film released three podcasts and three interviews with artists involved in contributing to this project.

Fabulous selection of music! … nuff respect nerm!

1) The first interview and podcast is with The Nasha Experience and True Tiger‘s Sukh Knight.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

2) The second is with Shiva Soundsystem‘s very own D-Code.

Shammi Pithia/EngineEarz/BobbyFriction @ RichMix

WOW!

What a fabulous gig to end an outstanding year of music. I was blessed to experience Shammi Pithia and Engine Earz Experiment on the same night.

Two different acts with one thing in common. A Passion for music.

Both Shammi and Prashant (Engine Earz) gave it their all. Communicating different emotions and displaying different styles of music for the audience to experience.

From the wafting, sonorous flute lines drift across the drums, sitar, violin and cello by Shammi and Co where each track was moving, reflective and inspiring!

Engine Earz provided the grimey build-ups of dubstep, unfolding leisurely as each track increases in intensity … crowd going wild!

The atmosphere was electric. Couldn’t really ask for more!

So, as a treat. Here is some of the footage from the Shammi Pithia set featuring Aggi Dukes, Ash King, Japjit Kaur, Anuti Dasgupta and the band FLUX.

In the coming years … I can see Shammi Pithia and Engine Earz performing at the Royal Albert Hall… Now that would be an unmissable performance!
