Unwind over Joewin Shamalina’s multi-genre set list next week
City-based hard rock band Spaghettify has been on a “self-imposed break” 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, we’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 Amazon’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 ‘Mixtape Thursday’ 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, “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.”
So when will the Spaghettify sabbatical end, we ask? “We don’t know, but we are working on an album, sharing lyrics, tunes and song scratches from time to time. We’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 storyline, Shamalina says, is integral to Spaghettify’s work. “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,” she explains. August 4. Entry free. At Indiranagar. 9 pm.
