Have we been your secret santa?
Secret Santa, a game that celebrates Christmas in its best spirit across the world. A game so renowned that we never miss an opportunity to plan for it every year. This year we planned to celebrate it with musicians across India.
We packed a few memorable gifts in the last few months for many musicians. Here are a few names who are afresh in our thoughts,
1. Joyjeet Panday
One of our recent gifts were to a passionate guitarist from a band called Orphic Cosmogony. A metal man and a brilliant guitarist - Joyjeet Panday has been chosen winner of Furtados Metal Mania by the pioneer of death metal scene in India - Sahil Makhija.
The opportunity was a challenge to the musicians to play their original track on the backing track of the Demonstealer Sahil Makhija. As a reward to his entry, he has won an Epiphone guitar by Furtados.

2. Krishna Chetan
One day we suddenly got a call from US based composer and producer - Krishna Chetan enquiring about an opportunity to collaborate with Kumar Vishwas. We never knew that this guy would not just nail this opportunity but also create a mesmerizing composition on the words of Varun Grover, the lyricist of Udta Punjab, Moh Moh ke Dhaage, making it his second win back to back. We have been honoured to have such a talent on our portal.

3. Various Artists For Fabindia
Making music exclusively for a brand like fabindia has been a great value proposition for various musicians. We would like to recognize all of their efforts and congratulate the musicians who have their music playing in Fabindia stores all day and all night.
Avyakta, Avra Banerjee, Jim Ankan Deka, Jackson John, Kallol Nath, Balasubramani kumar, Ravi C A, Oxygen, TATTU and Baiju Dharmajan. These musicians have not just gotten the love of all the people visiting Fabindia (Trust us, we have got amazing feedback) but have also been recognised by the clothing brand as one of the brilliant musicians from across the country.

4. Manoj Pandya
Manoj Pandya has been a music composer, arranger, a distinguished guitarist and what not. The list doesn’t have an end. From the multiple opportunities that we had hosted on Songdew, Manoj and his pune based band Lambada has nailed many. The most recent one being a free mastering package with the experts from Cloundbounce. Congratulations!

5. Blending Chords
We discovered Blending Chords through one of the opportunity to perform at Select Citywalk and they’ve been a wonderful discovery since then. Many a times have they performed at venues like Hard Rock cafe, Rodeo through Songdew and built a fan base which will not forget them easily.
We are pleased to have musicians like blending chords on our portal.
