Solace Tasili (‘to comfort) – A Universal Song of Love.
An original songsung by Jaya Khoobsurat in English & Urdu. Written & composed by four musicians and one translator, this is a collaboration from four countries with over eight weeks
of work for the single track – a true labour of love & knowledge.
In memory of Professor Stephen Hawking (1942-2018) “One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.” — To Diane Sawyer/ABC News June 2010
I have been working with online visualFiverr.comartists (graphics, video, .gif) for my professional pages.
All Artists gave 5-star work – they are highly recommended! 😍😎Here are the links to contact each of these professionals:
Jaya proudly holds her beautiful shopping bag, made by textile & stitch Artist, Jeni Irwin 30th July 2017
Meet ‘stitch artist’ Jeni Irwin, from Nungurner, Victoria – she has been making shopping bags for quite some years now, using recycled fabrics from op-shops, thrift stores, market stalls – as she explained to me, this is “a project to inspire and encourage the use of some of the huge amount of waste fabric that is sent to landfill – offcuts, leftovers, clothes, linen – rescued for a new life!”
The 48-Hour Film Project (Dubai, 2016)is on again – Dubai kicks off on Thursday 10th November 6:00pm for two crazy days of adrenaline rush to make a film from scratch – and, with rocks in my head, I’m in!
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.
