Unwind over Joewin Shamalinaa��s multi-genre set list next week
City-based hard rock band Spaghettify has been on a a�?self-imposed breaka�? for two months now. The members of this outfit, who are students at MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology are currently figuring out their career and interests, wea��re told. Their vocalist, Joewin Shamalina, for instance, has been busy with her acapella group, No Treble, and another all-girl vocal outfit, Venus Soul, aside form shooting for Amazona��s latest ad, Citizens Of Fashion. Next week, the biotech engineering student will take centrestage at Windsor Pub for a gig with city-based artistes, Jonathan Reuben (on guitar), and Pramod Pratap (drums, cajon).
The set list for the a�?Mixtape Thursdaya�� gig, she tells us, will be a mix of many genres and feature numbers by Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga, Adele, Maroon 5 and Metallica.
Ask her how she manages studies, stage shows and competitions (her acapella group won four in a row since their January-launch), the fourth year student says, a�?I have always been adept at juggling multiple things. In school, I used to be very involved in music, hockey and football, while doing equally well at academics.a�?
So when will the Spaghettify sabbatical end, we ask? a�?We dona��t know, but we are working on an album, sharing lyrics, tunes and song scratches from time to time. Wea��ve done five compositions already, and need to write about three more. These tracks will all tell one story, about a young girl and the many emotions she goes through in a relationship.a�? A storyline, Shamalina says, is integral to Spaghettifya��s work. a�?Our band name refers to a phenomenon that is experienced as a black hole engulfs matter in outer space. Likewise, we want our music, songs and stories to keep our listeners hooked,a�? she explains. August 4. Entry free. At Indiranagar. 9 pm.
