Bangalore based jazz virtuoso Amit Heri recently set off the season at Jazz Inn, Cavelossim, with some absolutely smoking live jazz, along with local jazzmen Colin D'Cruz on fretless bass and Lester Godinho on drums. The Amit Heri trio made sure the venue lived up to it's name. Each and everyone in the full house made up of tourists from all over the world including a good amount of local jazz enthusiasts, were all in for a treat on par with any jazz club in the world.

Emmilliano made himself at home onstage from the word go and promptly had the audience eating right out of his palms that caressed his two loves th...

Fauzia Maria Beg an accomplished singer of Indian origin who is based in Germany, has been singing Brazilian songs with her ten piece German band for the last fifteen years. Brazilians who have seen her perform find it hard to believe that she is of Indian origin. Fauzia has captured the essence of Brazilian music and made it her own simply because it was a form of music she enjoyed performing the most. Her articulate pronunciation, rhythmic scatting and exuberant stage presence has won her accolades from Latin jazz connoisseurs around the world. Goa could not have had a more appro...
