The Indian Sun is hosting artists from Australia and India to perform live on Facebook to its 22,000 followers
Amidst country-wide restrictions introduced by Prime Minister Scot Morrison to contain the spread of COVID-19, artists from all walks of life are getting on social media to entertain their fans and spread the message of positivity in the country. On 29 March, Ameeth Thomas from Junkyard Groove in India, kickstarted a series called Lockdown Diaries for The Indian Sun to connect with readers and the Indian community in Australia.
Eleven-year-old Janaki Easwar from Melbourne became the second singer to perform live for The Indian Sun. Janaki performed one of her originals and a few of her favourites (Billie Eilish, Benee, Eva Cassidy) including Tamil songs. You can watch Ameeth Thomas and Janaki on The Indian Sun’s Facebook page.
More about Janaki…
Janaki started singing at the age of 6. One of her performances posted on social media earlier gained the attention of David Jaanz of Jaanz international singing Academy, the master coach and mentor who moulded singing sensations like Delta Goodrem, Isaiah Firebrace, Harison Craig, Bella Paige and Aydan. David offered her a position in his master school in south Melbourne. David coaches Aria winners, National champions, Eurovision entrants and is the only coach whose students have won the trifecta of National television competitions: The Voice, The X-Factor & Australia’s Got Talent. His training and unique approach builds confidence, leadership and creativity. Janaki is David’s youngest student ever.
Janaki’s Indian background helped her to get exposure in Indian classical music, the musical form well-known for its additional benefits. She was lucky to find Shobha Sekhar in Melbourne, who is a disciple of world renowned classical musician DK Pattammal.
Janaki has developed a flair for song writing. Clarence Jey, American record producer, composer and songwriter who has worked on Grammy-winning records, selected Janaki’s original as the best amongst more than 100 nominations from a music camp in 2018. She got placed second in Australian Children’s Music foundation 2018 National song writing competition.
