Celebrating Music as a Global Phenomenon | Urban Music

A New Day - Laya Project Remixed
5 years after the Laya Project journey began, urban music embraces diverse traditions and cultures in Laya Project’s musical celebration of life.

Laya Project documents regional folk music traditions in remote villages that lay in the 2004 Asian tsunami's path.

Laya Project's musicians are the people of Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar and India. Performances of unknown local musicians were filmed and recorded on-location, arranged and mixed to create a composition that embarks on a musical journey crossing borders, while still preserving the music of the people.

Five years later, bridging the distance, urban music embraces diverse traditions and cultures in Laya Project's musical celebration of life... A New Day.

Pursuit for Independent Stuff | Yoda Press


YODA PRESS, a fiercely independent publishing house based in New Delhi, has launched a store for alternative books, periodicals, music and cinema by independent publishers, record labels/musicians and filmmakers.

The new store called YODAKIN is a 400-square-feet ground floor space located at 2 Hauz Khas Village. At a time when retail is ruled by the multinational or the conglomerate entity, this store throws open a space dedicated to marketing and promoting exciting work by some cutting-edge independents in books, music and cinema.

The store intends to keep a viable alternative alive to the more mundane and mass-market-driven mainstream even as it provides more visibility to independents engaged in fresh creative pursuits. Pass the word on, and make it a point to visit YODAKIN---you will keep coming back for more.

2, Hauz Khas Village,
New Delhi 110 16

Store timings: 10:30 am - 8:00 pm

Anish Kapoor's Spectacular Artwork for London 2012

Designs for what will be Britain's biggest piece of public art, a 120 metres tall looping tower by the artist Anish Kapoor that people will be able to climb, giving spectacular views of London. The structure will officially be called the ArcelorMittal Orbit, after steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal, the richest man in Europe, who is funding it.

The structure will cost about £19.1m.

Kapoor said one of his references was the Tower of Babel. "There is a kind of medieval sense to it of reaching up to the sky, building the impossible. A procession, if you like. It's a long winding spiral: a folly that aspires to go even above the clouds and has something mythic about it."
