Follow the Light🍀
.
.

There i was, up in mountains,
Gathering a Tribe,
Soaking in really cold winter, really late at night,
Feeling weak and strong at the same time,
I got up, full of joy,
And the Full Moon being my guiding light.
Stepped up on the stage, Opened my heart wide,
Having all the souls so close in sight,
Take what you may, I will refill the cup again,
Have faith, this will be set right,

Here, Rejoice, Reclaim, Reset,
Sun is shining ever so bright.

Follow the Light,
Follow the Light.

K

May the light be with you!

Always wanted to take pictures, frankly never had the budget to buy a camera, Independent music does that to your pocket also I love Music way too much for any thing else to take over. However that never stopped me to take pictures of whatever I see 😁 I don't like to be clicked but I like to capture others when they are themselves.
So a friend of ours gave us his Go Pro for some work we had to do now I am experimenting. I am like a little kid right now just like Bella and learning the tricks one day at a time in quarantine 🍀

Also, Meet my baby girl Bella, She is a constant comfort. We think that we rescue species but they rescue us and that was true. I don't want to make a handle for her because I can barely keep a track of mine so we will share this. This is from today!
Isn't she lovely for a Muse 💚

Please feed the strays wherever you are! Stay Home Fam 🍀🎶 #gopro #himalayan #womeninmusic #humansofmountains

Won't be crying no tears of pain,
If I die singing the Blues under the bluest sky, greenest trees and Love in my Heart,
Nothing to lose,
Nature is truly Divine!

I know that people I know are struggling, but more so I am worried about the people who I don't know. Long roads are awaiting them, walking for days to reach a place called home. They are hopeful they will make it, they have faith in their hearts even though there is no food in the stomach. How did they reach here? What world will their kids see? Signs were given to stop this, weren't they?
No but who cares? Greta is still continuing her Fridays for Future, It's called Perseverance which comes to us through this planet we inhabit. Fact! ⚛️ I feel pained, but I also feel immensely grateful to be where I am,with a roof over my head, food on the plate no matter how modest it may be. I also see it from planet's point of view by being aware and finding my place on the food chain, this beautiful Fragile Balance yet mesmerizing dance of all species living in harmony, being provided and taken care of, because nature feeds its babies. This is all man made greed, of over populating, of hysteria and Vicious amounts of Arrogance. I respect the judgment of nature. I do!
I guess, what I really want to say is, Please find yourselves at this point, be centered, heal yourself and heal others, Be responsible and learn the flawless dance of nature. The world will never be the same when we make it out of this Quarantine! Have each others back in whatever way possible.Share!
Trust me no amount of money is going to make this alright. We all are equal to this Planet. No caste, colour, greed, gender, financial back up, NOTHING. We are just a freaking species. And that has been put into perspective if we choose to see it.
P.S : If you reached till here, I especially want to thank the creative humans in my life, You all make such difference to this planet by just doing your part of creation. I admire your courage, I learn from you and mostly I respect you.
Nature doesn't have favorites but you can be one with it 🍀
Humbly,

Kalyaani
Singer Songwriter and A Mountain 🐐

True Story , Lockdown day 1✌️ I posted an art work for a online festival today and got to know that a fellow musicians image has been used. I frankly didn't recognise it, Also I don't think I need to. One cannot keep a track on millions of images that is a stereotypical image that does the rounds around me. I barely stay online!
I received a DM from a young artist who I tagged in the image, almost accusing me and questioning my intentions and preaching me about Artists rights. He is someone I have mentored and he is a friend. I will forgive him for his ignorance while i told him that I don't know why you are telling me this, You or the person concerned can take it up with a property and understand the subject. Plain silly. Funny that the person concerned didn't even know it existed or if he has a problem with that image ( I for one didn't recognise it except finding the artwork a bit awful)
P.S. I have written to the festival people about the picture of the artwork, I frankly don't have the time to involve myself on something that isn't my work!
I would much rather share my Art with the planet.
A While back, Somebody used my image to open a Tinder Account, My friend saw it and was aware that I don't get involved with Cesspool of internet mostly, He reported it and it was done! Solution Oriented!
Also, if someone wants to use my image for any festival, as a subject for art, Go ahead, I am not supremely enamoured by myself or an image. I am first and foremost a singer songwriter and my creations have a life of their own. I only care about my work and how can I better myself as a human being. No images, no money, even the songs I write belong to me, I don't hold it tight because I am Free in my Mind. I choose that over any human being, as my circle has only been getting bigger and stronger with the right energy. If you are one of them negative people who are clutching on to something that isn't yours, Please Leave Me Be. I don't think i own anything of mine except my guitar, Bella and a heart ful of Art and Love!

Be well Fam💚 Wish me luck to Rep India!

A love Note to Artists 🙌
.
.
Nature is the most potent aphrodisiac that is available to human kind. Respect it 🍀
.

This is the morning of million things that conspired to this day. My friends and family told me to stay safe, My Bestie told me not to hug anyone, because I am a hugger, But I did, over and over again, Because I know Universe has my back 🐾
I don't think I am scared of the disease, I wasn't scared because I Trust Nature. I don't mess with the flow just like when I write music because at the core of it, they both work on Discipline, Resilience and Balance ⚛️
I have been thinking about what to say about the disease that is spreading like wild fire, people are panicking, losing work, countries are shut down. People are still focused on themselves, not on nature. You might question this too, That's fine. But Reflect Now, Bake that Cake that you wanted to, clean your home, do laundry, Don't put make up, Get back to your roots 🍀
.
Artists on the other hand are coming out of their houses, considering they know what self isolation is all about, How it takes time to create something and what is loss of work and income. we live a high risk life but I don't think anyone takes time to really celebrate them. We are there for you always but first and foremost we are with Nature. Everything else takes a back seat. Relationships, bank accounts, parties, well you get the point if you reached till this point.

This is the time when we have to have each others back, Just like Nature doesn't show any favoritism to its beings, You shouldn't either. Come from a place of Love and Respect. I truly believe I was called here for a reason, I am on a mission to have the best life with Nature and enjoy this experience. This isn't a game. Wake up 🙌
.
We as artists will have your back, Always, because we are the healers of the planet,I salute each and every one of you who have healed me, had my back as a friend and family. I promise to do the same.
Tell your Tribe you love them. In the end, Nature Will Win. I am going to write songs if I reach that far! .

Take care of yourself Fam 💚

Love,

K

Love of Art is Art of Love,
Some Heard, Some Unheard ⚛️
.

It's rare to have a full moon shining down upon you, in a place you never stayed before, Faces you haven't connected to yet, and share work that is unheard for real. I got to collaborate a very personal journey after 7 months of leaving city Life for good. These snippets are a little something of Intro to 45 Mins of set, without a break, to keep the story telling in place and to utilise the time. This also is such an overwhelming feeling to listen to what you created and what you are meant to do for as long as you may roam this planet.
.
.
@kvstvm_mvsicivn and I shared old songs with new state of mind, to complete the circle of where art wants to take us as a Unit. Finally the collaboration I was waiting for happened and there is so much more to come.
.
.
. .

BTS : I was feeling sick, Nauseated, I went for a nap, waited all day to share, I was anticipating changes of the structure, all sorts of questions of how we would bring the humans who are elevated already.
P.S: I said a prayer to the universe and played at 9 Pm with my body tired and warm at the same time. Possibly the toughest gig so far but my heart is so full with the humans who stayed and shared the circle. I thank you for the Love 💚
.
.

Big Ups to @unheardfestival for giving us so much love, and each and every one of you who was there, Singing my songs! Trust me, I will remember you all forever!
