World Music Day: Indie Artists You Should Check Out

World Music Day is observed on 21st of June every year to celebrate music. This year, let’s discover new indie artists from India.

World Music Day, Ananya Sharma, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya , Tanmaya Bhatnagar, Gouri and Aksha, sunflower tape machine, Shane, Ranj, Clifr, Tribe Mama Marykali, Indie, New, World Music Day, Women, Song, composer, art, musical

This World Music Day, we bring you some indie artists to expand your playlist and introduce and embrace art and new artists of India.

“i will never be bad” by Ananya Sharma

“i will never be bad again” is a self-composed song by Ananya Sharma which was released in 2022. Ananya Sharma, based in Mumbai, India, apart from being a talented singer is also a composer and bandleader of Funan and Gang. She’s a storyteller most of all. She writes them to music. 

Her song, ‘I will never be bad again’ is one of her many stories, this one revolving around her childhood. It revolves around growing up as a child, which is a unique and individual experience for all of us. In her song, she writes and sings about some difficult patches of life that she had to face alone and probably scarred her for a long time. However, her song, or as she likes to call it, her story sung to her music is not about talking about these scars. Instead, it’s about moving past them and embracing the new and possibly better version of herself. 

Her story transforms from being so ashamed of herself that she can’t even look at herself to exploring and loving herself to the extent that she has found the courage to never be bad again because she will never feel the need to. “I could turn to dust/ I could slowly fade/ I could be my own person/  I could wait.” Life is not easy and in the path of it, we all stumble here and there but it also does not end there. To move forward is the very essence of it. To live it fully, as Ananya does, you need to let go of some things and reach out to others.

Bless Ya Heels by Tribe Mama Marykali

If you’ve always enjoyed listening to Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, and Little Mix and the more women who sing powerful songs about women, then this one’s for you. Tribe Mama Maryakai aka Katharina Valayil, is a Malyali singer who grew up in Nigeria. Her music celebrates women of color with a lot of sass with the undertone of the seriousness of the message she wants to put across. Her music celebrates womanhood in all its various forms. 

Through her music, she is rebelling against the structures that label women and put them in a box. With catchy beats and addictive lyrics, she’s using her platform and art to talk about the serious issues with regard to the historical oppression of women. The lyrics of Bless Ya Heels, “Wash your feet in the rain and pray/Before you move towards my temple/ Bless ya heels/ You stand on sacred ground…I am a Star of Venus/ I am Goddess witch/ Badass bitch…Tribe mama from the core/Am diggin’ in the core now!” channel the divine womanhood of women of color that is mostly neglected.

Mutual by Ranj X Clifr 

Ranjani Ramadoss is a musician from Chennai, India. Her journey started with two bands Kelvikkuri (jazz fusion) and Paula & the Associates (Neo-soul/pop). Now, she’s started her new project called RANJ which she launched in 2021. Her music is either English or Tamil and conveys different stories and themes. In her song, Mutual, she explores the difficult stage of a relationship when it doesn’t feel right. Each human relationship is complex and requires different things, approaches, and behaviors to be successful. A lot of times, the comfortable state of a relationship is hard to let go of. Ranjani explores the same with her lyrics, “Just because it’s comfortable/ Don’t mean that it’s suitable/ Think that its agreeable/ It don’t feel like home at all”

sophomore sweetheart – sunflower tape machine

sophomore sweetheart by sunflower tape machine sounds and feels exactly like its name. It will transport you to the first year or young days of your college life. The music makes you feel the nostalgia of exploring new things, new people, new places, and new experiences all for the first time. It feels like a trance of the young days where you can easily lose yourself. What adds to this feeling is the music video which is various clips combined in a film format that prompts you to see it as if you’re watching your own life reeling through the camera.  Aryaman Singh from Chennai is the founder of the experimental project, sunflower tape machine which is all about analog synth sounds inspired by the 80s and dreamy chords.

Mona Lisa Smile by Gouri and Aksha

Their song, Mona Lisa Smile is a mix of jazz and pop and leaves a calming effect on you. The music and the lyrics are the kinds you sway along to and vibe in peace on a rainy day with a book and a cup of your favorite coffee or tea. They are also there on Prateek Kuhad’s album Shehron Ke Raaz.

Itne Pyaar Se (Thoda Darr Lagta Hai) by Sanjeeta Bhattacharya x Tanmaya Bhatnagar

Love feels great to embrace but with great love comes the fear of losing it too. Sanjeeta Bhattacharya and Tanmaya Bhatnagar’s Itne Pyaar Se (Thoda Darr Lagta Hai) is a beautiful song about the many complexities that come with romantic relationships and how various couples embrace them. The lyrics, “Itne pyaar se/ Bhi thoda dar lagta hai/ Tere saath par, yeh darr bhi, acha lagta hai”, in their very raw form tell the stories and emotions each one of us goes through when in love. 

The music video, apt to the lyrics, portrays relationships and couples that are flawed and nowhere perfect to the dreamy lands of rom-com. In its true essence, the song is a raw exploration of what love feels like. The song closes with “Roke rukta nahi, dil beparvah lagta hai/ Bujhe bujhta nahi, dil lau jaise jalta hai” which tells the real tale of most love stories and what emotions people feel when in love.

Unveiling the Abstract Realms: Ram Kumar

Journey through the vibrant landscapes of an Indian art maestro Ram Kumar, a luminary in India’s artistic cosmos, who redefined abstraction.

Ram Kumar, Artistic, Abstract, Art, Painting

From figurative to abstraction, Ram Kumar, a luminary in India’s artistic cosmos, is a beacon of inspiration, revolutionising the canvas with his abstract strokes. Born in 1924, Ram Kumar’s journey from the corridors of academia to the bustling street of Paris and finally to the serene landscapes of Varanasi captures a profound evolution in both his art style and thematic preoccupations.

Ram Kumar was drawn into the art world due to a chance encounter with an exhibition at the Sarada Ukil School of Art while pursuing his Master’s in Economics at St Stephen’s College in 1945. He enrolled in evening classes at the art school under the guidance of artist Sailoz Mookherjea. Kumar started to hone his skills in still-life portrait painting, gradually transitioning to capture the urban decay and human condition of Delhi and Shimla through his paintings. During his formative years, Kumar’s art reflected a vibrant energy, often depicting scenes of everyday life juxtaposed with deeper existential themes. His works, such as “Why Can’t I Sleep” and “Oppression”, reflected the underlying social and political currents shaping post-independence India.

In 1948, Ram Kumar’s artistic journey took a significant turn when he joined a Hindi daily newspaper as a journalist trainee and crossed paths with artist J. Swaminathan. This encounter solidified his commitment to art, and began a lifelong friendship with fellow artists such as S.H Raza, F.N. Souza and K.H.Ara. The year 1949 witnessed Ram Kumar’s first solo exhibition in Shimla, where his paintings caught the eye of Dr Zakir Hussain, the then Vice-Chancellor of Jamia Millia Islamia University. Inspired by the early success, Kumar embarked on a journey of artistic enlightenment to Paris.

With its rich cultural tapestry, Paris was a crucible for Kumar’s artistic evolution. Under the tutelage of renowned artist Andre Lhote, Kumar delved into the work of lines, curves and colours, imbuing his works with a newfound dynamism inspired by the works of radicals like Louis Aragon and Roger Garaudy, as well as encounters with luminaries like Pablo Neruda, Kumar’s art began to reflect a deeper engagement with human emotions and societal realities. The years spent in Paris were transformative for Kumar, artistically and ideologically. His encounters with the works of Courbet, Rouault, Kathe Kollwits and Edward Hopper instilled in him a deep appreciation and sensitivity to the human experience, which would manifest in his later works.

When he returned to India, Kumar was drawn to the ancient city of Varanasi, where he encountered a land brimming with spiritual fervour and existential angst. The stark contrast between the city’s vibrant rituals and its silent decaying structures became a recurring motif in Kumar’s art.

Credits: Google Images – (The Curators Art)

The 1960s marked a watershed moment in Kumar’s artistic career as he transitioned from figurative to abstract expressionism. His “Grey Period” changed from vivid colours to muted tones reflecting the sad realities of human suffering and mortality. His cityscapes of Varanasi, rendered in Cubist aerial views, symbolised the existential angst that permeated his work. Kumar’s later works continued to explore Varanasi’s spiritual and existential dimensions, albeit with a newfound sense of transcendence. His “Benaras Series”, characterised by ethereal blues and a sense of collective spirituality, captured the city’s timeless allure while evoking a deep sense of human emotion and longing.

In retrospect, Ram Kumar’s artistic journey is a testament to the transformative power of exploration and introspection. From his early realist works depicting the bustling streets of Delhi to, his later abstract compositions inspired by the charisma of Varanasi, Kumar’s art transcends boundaries and speaks to the universal human experience.

In a world marked by constant change and upheaval, Ram Kumar’s timeless artworks serve as poignant reminders of the enduring power of art to reflect, provoke and inspire. As we navigate the complexities of modern existence, may we find solace and enlightenment in the enduring legacy of artists like Ram Kumar, whose abstract brushstrokes continue to resonate across time and space.
