Chilling Out

From truly useful to totally frivolous is what the Radio Cairo had to offer at the Flea By Nite held at Olive Beach recently. The evening saw people hopping from stall to stall checking and buying the little treasures that one may not find easily. From Ananaya’s handbags, and PositiviTee’s range of teeshirts, Chilli billi’s range of clothes, funky jewellery, bags, accessories to Mrinalini Cariapa’s Flames of the Forest range of jewellery, JaVali’s eclectic selection of women’s wear and accessories to Kedar Maddula’s brand wondershop offering contemporary women’s wear and many more, the shoppers couldn’t get enough. “What woman would miss a party where she gets to shop,” said one of the guests.

A comment that reminded many of the guests that they were there to party as well. While there were groups of men having a good time nibbling the Mediterranean delicacies and catching up at the pebbled courtyard, the women sipped their cocktails and shopped till they dropped. The evening really took a shape when DJ Iggy aka Ignatius Camilo, took the console. Matching his music to the atmosphere, he started off slow but turned the crowd’s attention with grooves spanning across diverse genres of sound like underground, electro jazz, ambient and slo-mo disco. “It’s really great playing in the City because people here are very open to any kind of music, unlike North where people are more into Bollywood,” said DJ Iggy who is from Goa and has played both in India and abroad. As a music lover, he has no preference or bias towards any specific type of music, but prefers to collect and spin intelligent sounds. As a result, he does not play outright commercial Indi Pop, Bhangra, Bollywood or cheesy chart toppers, but has his own unique way of mixing Indian elements of sounds.
