Community Playlist 033

In my recent past, one of the few faces that became familiar because of her presence at our gigs and other gigs is Meghna Shankar Kallat. I am yet to get to know her better but love the fact that she is so approachable apart from her love and interest in music. What started off as an exchange of hello’s, led to a random night outside The Daily where we or rather she was trying to wingman a dear friend to see her making the shift and pursuing a career in something she loves and believes in – music; Meghna definitely seems to be on a great path. Her kind words of motivation at the bottom of her playlist description brings back the belief that sometimes takes a walk leaving you stranded, questioning your life choices (I’m sure a lot of us have been there). As she is a few weeks into her new journey in music, we would like to extend our best wishes, it’s going to be a whirlwind of a ride but completely worth it. Here’s to discovering new music, celebrating old music and everything in between!

“This playlist is very close to my heart. These songs belong to diverse genres and soundscapes. But each song represents something important – be it the feeling of euphoria I feel when I listen to one or a great memory attached to another. A lot of the music has shaped parts of my personality. I do believe that music has the power to heal and to make you see things differently, change perceptions. It is amazing to be living in a time where lines between genres are blurring day by day and people are open to discovering many distinct kinds of sound. While this playlist might come across as random at first, it simply celebrates multiple styles of music and cannot be pigeonholed at all.

This compilation comes at a very significant point in my life as I am finally taking the plunge and getting into the music business, full time – that’s why it is close to my heart and is almost like a soundtrack to epiphanies and new beginnings. I am excited and honoured to be putting it together for you because I admire, appreciate and respect you lots. Your work speaks for itself. This is a tough business to be a part of in our country – especially now that we are poised to be in the Top 10 global markets for music. And you are amongst the few women helping shape the burgeoning underground music scene here. You are a force to reckon with and a pleasure to know personally.” – Meghna Shankar Kallat
