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 2000+ 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.

BRAND NEW SONG – Solace Tasili
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

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!”

Its been a while since my last post… and, I’ve been so, so busy. But, life has a funny way of giving us ‘breaks’ to follow other passions…. and so, I’d like to share with you, what I’ve been up to……

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.
