ANNUAL CHRISTMAS CAROLS BY JAYA
Please find below, links to the 2018 Christmas carols – a playlist compiled with all my favorite singers from around the world who have laboured to bring you so many beautiful songs for free.

These songs are not studio sound balanced and therefore,
best sound is heard with headphones.

Each song must be clicked individually, and will open in a separate tab.

Merry Christmas, sung with love, Jaya Khoobsurat ~ December 2018

So much Singing – and much more

Jaya's Smule Channel

Click icon for Jaya’s Smule Channel – Please wear headphones

I’ve been singing so much the past eight months – every single day. Sometimes all day; into the night; all through the night – going to bed at early morning; then starting all over again…  its been a huge time of creativity, relentless practice. I have been so busy with ‘other’ creative pursuits this past year, including the gift of travelling to Canada (Vancouver BC; plus Calgary & Banff in Alberta) – the first time in my life I’ve had ‘time’ to develop my other interests. I’ve worked with other musicians to craft a new original song, volunteered in film competitions, produced   short films of my own and…  sung. There is now  more than 725+ songs on my Smule channel  – each one crafted, one at a time, all songs are a labour of love, unpaid yes, but… filled with the Joy and satisfaction of creating music, short films and many many friendships online and wordwide.  Continue reading

New page on my blog – selfies galore – gallery through the years

I have placed a new page on my official blog (selfies are a good record of one’s state of mind) – which contain some of the pictures I’ve taken during the making of musical and film achievements – a general history, some definite nostalgia – there are many pics missing from earlier years, which I’ll add when I find them – but… this was a bit of fun for me, and has brought back so much memory, struggle, triumph, sadness, joy and generally experiences that I’ve treasured — comments are welcome; and questions too, if you feel inspired.
