Surviving the Odds
What does entitlement sound like? Well, definitely not like this episode of Pochemuchka. My guest for this episode is the supremely talented bass player Kyla Wright. She takes us through her journey, her struggles, her ups, her downs and how she survived the odds. Destiny has played a huge role in bringing her to the place where she is right now. Having said that, Kyla is extremely hardworking and talented. Listening to her story has been a great inspiration for me and I am sure it will inspire each and every one of you!

Passion and Lav
Slow and steady wins the race. Right? But what if there is no race? What if multiple people could run alongside each other with no finish line in sight? Well my guest for this podcast is doing exactly that with both of her passions - law and music, not letting one win over the other. In this episode, my dear friend Lav and I talk about managing different careers and how her experiences of being born in a Tamil household, living in Bangalore and working as a technology attorney have made her the artist she is today. She also talks about using her knowledge and experience as a lawyer to help artists legally through her band Legally Sound! Watch out for a special surprise at the end!

Reuse. Recycle. Remix.
In this episode with Samahita Narang, an independent singer-songwriter, composer from Delhi, India we talk about the importance of creating something pure and vulnerable and the emotional labour involved in creating something like that especially in an age where remixes are gaining popularity. We also speak about the fundamental changes required in the music industry so that we can support original and honest music.  Samahita is a classically trained singer and has learnt Hindustani music with the Gandharva Mahavidyalaya. She has been singing since the age of 7. But, it was only during college that she decided to pursue her passion of becoming a musician and started writing originals and posting them on her social media. She recently released her debut single 'Matwari' on all streaming platforms. Instagram: @samahita.narang Spotify: Samahita Narang
