Twenty years!

 

Twenty years some say, have passed!

Twenty years some say, have gone!

They couldn’t be more wrong!

 

Years… a second… just a tick away

 

Twenty years were really so fast,

Though Twenty years may seem so long,

Yet not for those you walked along…

 

Miles… An inch… just a step away!

 

‘Cos every morning, that favourite song ,

Of Dreams and Passion and Sweat and Strife,

Every Day was singing along,

Through Joys and Grief and triumphs of Life!

that Kid again

 

Dreaming of my childhood,

Being there was so good,

Playing all day long,

Wishing that the day would never end

And now I feel so weird,

I wish the night would take me in her arms

And sing me a song to sleep.

I long to sleep!

 

Fantasy and life didn’t,

Feel any different;

Living in a dream,

Nothing seemed to bother me at all

And now I feel so weird,

I wish the night would take me in her arms

And sing me a song to sleep.

I long to sleep!

 

Now those years have gone,

How I feel alone.

I wish I could feel the same,

I wish I could be that kid again…

 

Play with me, Stay with me, be my friend;

Dream with me, feel with me and then again

Laugh with me and cry with me, you’re my friend…

I’ll be good, very good!

Dreaming of my childhood,

Being there was so good…

 

Last Night I had a Dream

Last night I had a Dream.
I was at a party and we were singing along with this guy singing “Dil To Bachcha Hai Ji”. But he forgot the words to the verse and looked around for help. Suddenly, to my surprise, I found myself continuing the song all alone; I somehow knew the words. There was a warm buzz as the guests watched me perform and heartily applauded as I ended with the refrain.

The best part, however… the one applauding the most, was none other than Naseeruddin Shah (the star who originally performed this song in a Bollywood flick).

Wow!

I havent yet woken up!

Piracy Kills Indie Artists

Piracy KILLS Indie Artists everyday!

Indie artists are not backed by huge Corporations or Music Labels. They create Music from scratch and then go on to produce the track. Some even produce Videos to support their promotion. 

Even a Kid can Rip a track from Youtube or anywhere on the net, but it takes a HEART to RESPECT, LOVE, & SUPPORT INDIE MUSIC!

Buying a track online may seem cumbersome to a few people, but its the RIGHT thing to do! It’s really not that much to ask for.

Go out there and Support your Indie artist. Buy music. http://www.oklisten.com/kcloy or https://itunes.apple.com/album/life-is-single/id848932400 or

Bakara! the official April Fools Day Anthem

BAKaRA

(The Scape-goat)

It’s refrain has a childlike innocence and mischief.

Bakara sings of the basic human nature to ‘trick’/fool another. It also goes on to confirm the belief, “What goes around… comes around!”

It’s a funfilled Hindi -Bollywood-ish track that’ll get you grooving.

It’s been one of the most popular tracks at all my performances.

The video was released almost 2years ago and NOW, it’s about time to let it run wild… once again!

Here’s a little gist of the song

BAKARA

(The Scape-goat)

Everyone, at some time or other, has tricked or fooled another.

Even the trickster has surely been fooled by some other.

They say, it’s the law of nature, so how can we escape it?

It’s in our blood!

Get out of the way mister!

Make room!

Here he comes with a swagger…. the next fool!

LIFE IS…

My latest single, “Life is…” is influenced by Baul Music, the music of the mystic minstrels from the Eastern parts of India.

The deep and yet simple, thought provoking lyrics of this song, enveloped in a lilting melody, is my bid to belittle the ups and downs in life by giving it the face of a colourfull country fair.

I’ve used Rangoli, a colourful art form of India, at the beginning and at the end of the video. This art form is made, mostly using coloured powder.

While a Rangoli is considered auspicious and used during festivals, I’ve also used it to represent my belief – ‘DUST WE ARE AND TO DUST WE SHALL RETURN’

And of course, that an artist must surely be made from colourfull dust!

Shooting of this video was quite challenging while being fun. The location, the climb up a steep hill, the delays, the sun strokes, swimming in a chilled river, the scary ox cart ride, editing, shortage of funds and cost cuttings, etc. brought our little band of friends and well wishers even more closer.
I sure do hope all of you enjoy the presentation that you’ll find at the end of this blog.

This project was part funded by a crowd funding project via indiegogo.com.

Life is… has been recorded LIVE
(No programming used)

Life is…

Tanana naa naa nana

Life is like a fair in the country grounds

You can see giant wheels and merry-go-rounds

It’ll take you up
It’ll take you down
It’ll take you round and round
It’ll take you your heart into your head and make it spin around

Tanana naa naa nana

Have you seen the room of funny mirrors
How can you forget the room of funny mirrors

There’s a room full of funny mirrors
There is a room full of funny mirrors

Every mirror, laughing at your faults & errors
Deep inside you feel the terror,
You’ll believe the faulty mirror

Mirror! Mirror! Faulty Mirror!
Mirror! Mirror! Salty Mirror!

Nasty mirror!
Dusty mirror!
Feisty Mirror!

They’ll say you’re fat
They’ll say you’re short
They’ll say your mind’s unsound
You’re an Ogre!
You’re a monster!
You’re from underground!

Tanana naa naa nana
