AJAXXX - Fresh From Orlando

 

By Tirusha Dave

The energy and atmosphere of Orlando is of its own identity, and the nightlife is certainly one of the best in Florida. When it comes to Hip-Hop music, Orlando is an undeniable melting pot. Taking the stairs to the second level in one of Orlando’s hottest clubs, a familiar tune starts to ease through my ears and a familiar voice starts to take control of the microphone. I turn and see Orlando-based recording artist, Ajaxxx, gearing up for his performance. Read more...

Daru Ka Nasha - The Indian Edition

As you may recall from my column in November of 2007, I had mentioned that I would soon be leaving for the homeland. However, circumstances changed and I had to rush to Delhi earlier than expected and was unable to write the column for December.
