    I generally listen to melody songs. And, I am more into the male singers. And, there is a variety of voices and styles there. Like Armaan sounds soft and Atif sounds a bit rough and imperfect, yet sweet. Now, Bollywood mostly tends to deal with melody. So, if you're looking for rock/metal, I'll tell you that it really isn't a big part of our music culture. You can find such stuff only at the indie/band level that almost never gets commercialised. I can find umpteen Hindi rock bands here but then, no one in Bollywood produces such stuff. However, there are some listeners of these kinds of music in the metros here and there.

    Recently, rap music (called desi rap too sometimes) has emerged as a parallel genre of music especially in the Punjab region. And now, it has a place for itself in Bollywood too. Also, there are many dance numbers and peppy numbers for dancing. Most of the songs in Bollywood are of that genre. Female vocalists are actually doing many kinds of stuff today. But, those don't seem to work for me. But, you could search them on youtube.
    I am into modern melody myself.

    At first, the kind of songs that I post could feel very different to what you hear. But, It's detailed, granular, and quite nuanced. It's to do with a spectrum of tones that involves more than the Octave itself (and includes it). We tend to permute and combine upto 12 different semitones on the Hindustani scale on different kinds of beats again (notice the kinds of permutations finally possible). And, all this to help express the beautiful human heart. So, that's a lot of content to tickle, and ofcourse entertain your right brain. :)

    Enjoy :)

    I've actually got an eclectic taste in music as I like quite a few different genres. I love trad. Scots/Irish but also English folk music. I like country. I like soft rock. I like some pop music. I like a bit of rock & roll. I like Motown. I like Northern soul. I like a bit of jazz. I like reggae. I like some classical. Love songs are nice too. I like nice, background music, good singers & songs which really mean something if you listen to them & think about the words. I sing myself & can song-write. I like listening to women singers & joining in then I can try to copy them. When I'm singing I enjoy myself but I take it seriously. It's not just a bit of fun. I concentrate on my voice & which tone I should be using, timing of when I should come in, breathing (which is very important because if you don't breathe right you either don't sound right or you lose your voice mid-song. The best way to breathe when singing is a long, deep diaphragmatic breath before you start & a few, long deep diaphragmatic breaths during instrumental breaks. That's why song-writer's write in instrumental breaks to give the singer a breather. If singers are singing a cappella the songs are normally shorter, require humming sometimes & have fewer note-holds in order to make it easier for the singer because there are no instrumental breaks for the singer to catch their breath) & the words. Thank you very much for the information. I found it very interesting. :0)

    It is indeed & shocking at her age. I mean I know she was not really young but she was not really old either. Does anybody know why or how?
