Relatable riffs - Dotemirates

Relatable riffs

When you perfect a project for a long time, the outcome can either be insanely good or ridiculously over-thought. Fortunately for The Sahej Project, their studio album Reminiscence a Lost Canvas which took four years in the making, falls in the first category. The band focused all of their talents and energies into the album and recently debuted it in Bengaluru. Initially a closed-door project between Hreedish Kakoty and Nukul Mehra, The Sahej Project had a very different line-up back then. Hreedish narrates their start-up story, “Nukul and I initiated this as a song-writing project. Seeing the potential our songs...

Bollywood-town’s safe bet

Over the last couple of years, Indian cinema has churned out some spectacular films based on real-life incidents, biopics on sportsmen, politicians, freedom fighters and businessmen.

While some films — for example Shootout at...

They spiral between stances as their handstands and other childhood poses become more literal boxing bouts, with one of them taking the role of referee: familiar to any sibling who has ever played peacekeeper. At its best, Bout floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee. CW ComèteAt the fringe with kids? Even without them, this could be the feelgood hit of...

At Valvona & Crolla, a venerable Edinburgh deli dating from 1934, I am eating arancini for breakfast and trying to make sense of the abundance of food-related shows at this year’s fringe. For three days, I’ve plodded rain-drenched backstreets, consuming hours of drama, comedy and performance art about eating. I’ve watched comfort food cabarets and comedy about the Toby Carvery, listened to rants about clean eating and calorific excess and met (albeit figuratively) the young women who tested Hitler’s dinner each evening for poison. There has been immigration-based drama Citizens of Nowhere?, staged in the kitchen of a Novotel hotel,...
