After the Storm has gone
My debut short film that I've been working on starring the beautiful Sandra Jasmin is now complete. Am so happy that it's been voted winner in the Best Experimental Film AND Best Musical Score sections of the Feel the Reel International Film Festival in Scotland. It was also voted finalist in both the New Wave Short Film Festival in Munich and the Tokyo International Short Film Festival and it's also been officially selected for the Toronto Women Film Festival and as semi-finalist in the Munich Music Video awards! Truly exciting times. It's been an amazing journey and I've learnt so much! So many firsts - first time directing, first time creating a story based short film, first time creating a musical sound track. It will be released later in 2021 online. Check out the trailer below to get a little taste!
Many of the songs I write have come from times when I felt lost, full of longing and questions... They deal with the feeling of facing the unknown, the emptiness inside... my own helplessness... and yes too, the strength and wisdom that resides deep within... I'm sharing a selection of music that might help my listeners at this current time in the world. May they help you face the darkness and provide light and direction in the days to come.
With love, Tanmayo
Inspired by the beautiful poem by the same name, this song is dedicated to my beautiful friend Annette who sadly left her body last year after a long fight with cancer. The story reminds us that it is in those times when we feel we have been left utterly alone, that the divine is closest.
“What I love the most about music is that every now and then a magic seems to take over. In that moment, everything disappears. There is no more 'me' - only music and an incredible feeling of joy ”
