With the internet spreading like wildfire, it was obvious that the `Digital’ platform as we know it today would be the most talked about, most sought after invention of the 21st century. But inventions and platforms have always been there; like they say the number of stories in the world are only as many as the fingers on your hand. The difference is not in the story; it is how you present them!
While every other media has been writing off Independent music, Artist Aloud over the last 4 years, thinking differently has time and again proved otherwise. Non film music, which is labeled as Independent music could never be written off! Music that is pop culture, songs that the generation of today have grown up listening to cannot be ignored. Independent music deserves recognition and Artist Aloud is proud to be its definitive digital platform for 4 yrs.
Independent music is in huge demand and this is exactly what Artist Aloud aims to power in its 5th year. Come 7th January 2014 and www.artistaloud.com will have an all new & exciting look.

On completing 4 yrs & talking on the future of Artist Aloud, AVP and Business & Product Head, Soumini Sridhara Paul says, “Seeing Artist Aloud complete 4 years is not just an achievement but a dream come true and this could not have been possible without Hungama, all the artists we have on board and my team. We are just at the beginning of where we want to be and having completed 4 yrs, we definitely know we are on the right path and it is only a matter of time that Independent Music will be synonymous with Artist Aloud.”

It’s time for decorate your home and gorge over some yummy food and desserts! But all the celebrations get pepped up with that dash of music! Breaking away from the monotony of ‘Jingle bells’ and other Christmas songs, we at Artist Aloud have decided to give a contemporary touch to the season of Yuletide.
Eka’s ‘Christmas Feel It In The Air’ as the title aptly suggests speaks volumes about the festivity and the beauty of it. Magic with music brings energy and positivity to the celebration and AA plans to make it special with its interesting mix of pop, rock and different forms of music. Another suggestion could be the songs of Joanne Fernandes with songs like Love Jesus. What made it so special was the inert feelings that the singer expressed about the occasion and her love for the Lord himself. Going the unconventional way she added those heavy beats of drums and rock tunes in this song that was dedicated to Lord Jesus Christ. Calling it as an unique tribute, this track is for the ones who like to keep their Christmas different.
Many such artists like to explore different genres of music, maintaining the devotional value at the same time breaking the norms of conventional forms of spiritual tracks. So, this year tell us which is your pick from our AA Christmas collection?
Women power is one word which describes Indiva. Comprised of four popular and talented female artists, Indiva diverges into different areas of music. From classical to adding that dash of contemporary, the band concentrates on different genres of music – sometimes even fuses it together to create a new form.
Using different elements of the universe – combining them into one signifies Music for this band. Air signifies the one with a golden voice – Hamsika Iyer. Establishing her singing prowess in Bollywood, she has given some popular chartbusters like Chammak Challo. Merlin D’Souza (Fire) adds on to the stellar music of the band with her piano skills. Going the classical way is Shruthi who maintains the charm of Indian traditional music, signifying water, with her violin. Completing this band is none other than rockstar Vivienne Pocha. Earth being her element, she is talented equally when it comes to her vocals and playing the guitar.
Indiva has given out some stunning performances all over India. This girl band survives on the power of music and the passion they share for it. While all possess some enviable skills when it comes to performing, the four women have taken it upon themselves to redefine Indian pop music with their own terms and conditions.
Indiva has recently extended their association with Artist Aloud and their music will be available on all platforms including :
- PC APP
- VOICE ( Dial 5464611 from your mobile phone )
While the common notion is that college festivals in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi and other educational hub have a rocking guest list of A list bands, playback singers, award winning musicians this time around things have changed and how! Gujarat is the state that is currently high on festivity, celebrating art and music. From A R Rahman to popular singer Usha Uthup, a lot of singers are paying frequent visits to the state to celebrate the different phases of the art.
Naada Music Festival recently held in Ahmedabad featured an all girls rock band Hurrican Girls, along with celebrated musicians like Shubha Mudgal and turned out to be a huge hit. But that is just one example! Many such artists are being a part of this celebration and gushing about the enthusiastic audience who just can’t get enough of music. Going a step beyond, the youngsters this time have explored horizons beyond the confines of Bollywood music – giving equal importance to indie performers too. In fact a lot of these collegians prefer young bands and contemporary music as they can relate to them. Parikrama and the favourite DJ Aqeel have been invited at the same platform to serve the tastes of different audience.
A simple idea that evolves during a conversation over a cup of tea can create wonders! Something similar seems to be the inception point of Music Mania that is set to spread like wildfire in Mumbai. One of India’s most popular Ghazal singers, Talat Aziz’s wife Bina who joined her husband in his private party with his contemporaries Pankaj Udhas and Anup Jalota sculpted a new concept of promoting music and searching for new artists!
Bina Aziz has decided to launch a music club Music Mania and her husband Talat too has given a thumbs up for its execution. The club is supposed to have musical events with a luxurious wine and dine setting. Excited about her new venture, Bina Aziz said that the main feature of the club would be hunting for new singing talents across varied genres of music who have the confidence to perform at events organized by her club.
Accompanying the couple is Pankaj Udhas who believes that the club will be able to provide music according to the listener’s choice unlike other mediums and will turn out to be the perfect hangout for the ones who love live and exclusive events in the city. Anup Jalota too is extending his support to the new venture and said that he would like to know every member of the club through active interactions. Soumini Paul of artist aloud in association with Safia Ally of 92.7 Big FM have also informed that the artist talent hunt will be conducted through live events and digital voting and will reach out to over 65 milliion people.
The club is all set to kick start at Sunville Banquets, Worli, Mumbai on November 26 and will feature different kinds of talent along with promoting a young Hyderabadi singer Adil Hussaini. So, are you ready to be a music maniac?
