Aabar Dekhaa Hobey – Rimita

From the city of Kolkata arrives vocalist, composer, and voice trainer Rimita Mukherjee whose journey as a vocalist embarked in 1995 after having received training from various musicians through the years, and having worked with the likes of Kalyanji [of Kalyanji-Anandji fame] and Rajesh Roshan. But her indulgence in Bollywood is side stepped for “Aabar Dekhaa Hobey”, an ethnic-based song backed by soothing arrangements – especially the pleasant usage of flute – which supports Rimita’s fine voice. The Bengali song demonstrates that the primary strength of Rimita remains her polished harmonies cushioned in soft pop settings. Rimita’s unique vocals are certainly the showpiece in providing life to the song. Reviewed exclusively for Artist Aloud by PARAG KAMANI

Home – John Flynn

From the land of the Big Apple or close to it any way, New Jersey based John Flynn has been a seasoned musician, but having launched a solo album only last year. On “Home”, Flynn has found a happy medium away from the aggression of the late ’70s punk to the more danceable, upbeat rhythms of ska of that era and, if you stretch your musical imagination further, the song is also charged with a philosophical sentiment that states that to find your real home, bypass materialism, and achieve it through peace, happiness, and love. It is also left to Flynn to provide a little Caribbean sun to his song with brass sweetening the sounds that sweep across it. Essentially, “Home” is where Flynn’s heart is. Reviewed exclusively for Artist Aloud by PARAG KAMANI

Soberbia – Tiananmen

From Guatemala arrives the three-piece Tiananmen who have been operating as a band since 1992. Since their debut in 1994 to last year’s “Emisor”, Tiananmen’s sound heralds a serious approach to the hey days of the New Wave movement, combining the best of new age sounds with electro-pop from the ’80s. With synths blazing [courtesy Juan Carlos Rojas, who is also responsible for the song’s Spanish vocals], combined with effective guitar [Luis Fernando Rojas] and bass undertones [Sergio Salares]. While each instrument is highlighted on “Soberbia”, it is indeed a pleasure to hear the sounds of Tiananmen in this decade and era.Reviewed exclusively for Artist Aloud by PARAG KAMANI
