Song and Video Review: Trippy ~ Aap Se Mausiiquii

After a short break my favourite Musician Himesh Reshammiya, has released the next video from his second private album Aap Se Mausiiquii.


The first four videos from the album have received a tremendous amount of hits collectively at YouTube, and I am sure the new video which is for the song Trippy, wil be no exception. Touted as the biggest dance track of the year, the video of Trippy features Himeshji, with singer Neha Kakkar and supermodel Waluscha de Sousa. The lyrics are by Manoj Muntashir. When you listen to the song purely as an audio, it is not easy to picture how it should be captured visually, which is why the video of Trippy has done an exceptional job!

My latest piano solo: Careless Whisper by George Michael

After giving my tribute to the legendary late George Michael, I finally finished learning the full right hand melody of Careless Whisper song on the piano.

While the left hand notes are also available for the song, I felt in this instance the left hand was not needed, seeing as the song in its entireity has been well transcribed for the right hand. Bearing in mind that the original song does not even feature the piano in the slightest, the song played on the piano sounds wonderful. I tried my best to capture the correct amount of emotions and feelings required. I truly love this song a lot even though it is a sad tale of a failed romance.

New Music Monday: Sarah by Nouman Javaid

One of my favourite Musicians Nouman Javaid is back with his latest release Sarah. Sarah is a long awaited track and it certainly lives up to expectations. Nouman has previously given us superb tracks such as Dard E Tanhai and Main Chala for the Bollywood film Jashnn in 2009, as well as the beautiful Charade Rang for the Bollywood film Yamla Pagla Deewana in 2011.

When you listen to a song which has been composed by Nouman, you know that you will receive technical perfection. His sultry vocals which blend a combination of Urdu and Arabic lyrics, present a new twist to his signature style of romantic Music. Sarah is a true romantic song which will be a perfect gift for your loved one during the forthcoming Valentine season.

My latest piano solo: Hasi Ban Gaye from Hamari Adhuri Kahani

I ended 2016 with my piano solo of the Bollywood song Hasi Ban Gaye (translated as You Became My Smile) from the film Hamari Adhuri Kahani. The song has been composed by debutant composer Ami Mishra. This song has a melody which I love listening to a lot, yet it also has a lot of repetition. It is the repetition which made me take a lot longer than normal to finish learning the actual song!

I have learnt the song from sheet Music which has been transcribed by pianist Dhruv Gandhi. The solo has a mixture of chords and the main melody of the song which features at the beginning and at the end (in a higher octave).

Arya Entertainment presents the DJ Toons remix of Albeliya

Wishing all my readers of Girl at the Piano a very Happy New Year! It feels great to be sharing a song on my first blog post of 2017.

During the end of last year, I had blogged about Arya Entertainment holding a remix contest for their first song release Albeliya. The winner of the contest was DJ Toons and I was also lucky enough to interview him. If you missed his interview be sure to check it out GATP interviews DJ Toons.

Arya Entertainment have now released the remix of Albeliya that has been created by DJ Toons! I really enjoyed listening to the remix, as it has not taken away the soul of the original song and for me personally, that is the sign of a great remix. Congratulations to DJ Toons!
