Sparkle #205: Jazz It Up!

“If music be the food of love, play on.” ~ William Shakespeare Is there anyone on this planet who doesn’t identify with the power of music? Music is an art form which deeply touches your mind, heart and soul. Irrespective of genre and artist preferences, everybody has songs they turn to when they want to express a feeling, calm their minds or just relax and take a break!

Music is a powerful medium that connects people and…

Sparkle #52: Piano Man

Hello people, I wanted to do another vintage post today themed on music, so here goes! I love everything retro, so my taste in music is no different. Personally, I am a huge fan of old songs from the Indian movie industry. Brian Silas, a star piano player, has done some wonderful instrumental versions of these songs over the last few years.
