24 Hours Irresponsible by Shibani Kashyap & Quino featuring Stylebhai

24 Hours Irresponsible

Born in New Delhi, singer Shibani Kashyap is a graduate in English Literature, largely composing music in the Sufi-western blend with songs like “Sajna Aa Bhi Jaa”, “Ho Gayi hai Mohabbat”, and “Zinda”. However, on “24 Hours Irresponsible”, Shibani takes a tangent, and how.

Taking on pop-inflected reggae – courtesy composers Bruce Carlin and Rajesh Roy – Shibani does as much to the song to move it away from mainstream reggae and right into international appeal due to the support of fellow vocalist, Joaquin McWhinney, the frontman of Big Mountain, a band that had its genesis in the U.S. and scored a ‘Top 10’ in 1994 with a rendition of guitarist Peter Frampton’s “Baby, I Love Your Way”. Singer Joaquin is more popularly known as “Quino”, who is of Mexican/Irish heritage, where several of his family members were musicians that performed mariachi, a genre that is atypical of Western Mexico. Quino’s interest in reggae occurred after viewing a documentary about Bob Marley.

Nevertheless, returning to “24 Hours Irresponsible”, both singers Shibani and Quino have retained their attention-grabbing, radio-friendly voices, delivering it with that big blast of light musical sunshine that extends from reggae to raga, covering the languages of English and Hindi.

For those interested in trivia, Shibani was one of the 29 independent and mainstream artists who were part of Hungama Digital Media Entertainment’s then new independent music venture in 2010, ArtistAloud.com which, according to Shibani, “is a great site as it gives artists their individual space and a platform.”
