About the director: Fachmia M. Adeeva started his videography career at the young age of 11, when he directed the cult classic short film, ‘Blood and What its Got To Do With Demons’. Soon after, he began a spiritual journey leading to his 2008 release ‘Saving Private Bryan’. He has won multiple awards, such as the Padmafree award for being free and the George award for being George (Being the first non-George participant to win the latter). Recently, he shifted his focus to music videos, collaborating with upcoming bands in and around major Indian cities.
Hyderabadi debutante, Niteesh Kondiparthi’s EP – Not Worth It, is a wavy sonic amalgamation of everything life has thrown at him till date; from lost lovers & loneliness to foreboding fear and fathomable existence as his driving motifs, Niteesh has very artfully packed his 5 song release, at the heart of which we learn, that any of these shortcomings that we submit to, are just not worth it.
The song-writer centric compositions are filled with rather evocative chord movements, which have been wonderfully backed by his vocal capacity & the rest of the band/production, just adding to emotional taste. One gets to see a good bunch of musically inspiring elements through the EP, ingrained from the likes of jazz & funk to blues & rock, or as Niteesh claims – “pop prog”.
Our favorite track from the EP is Kala Chedire – mellifluous Telugu lyrics, and silvery violin shreds, over the soft, yet ponderous backing composition of the song (add meaning of the title here) – none like other, for the first time in a EP.

The BBC is a consortium of talent with music, dance & dialogue. They are a fun, vibrant, wacky group performing big band arrangements with a bold singing & Instrument section. We bring you interesting and culturally diverse music from across the globe. The collaboration between TheSoundsWithin and The Bangalore Broadway Company involved a video editing project, in which we documented their rendition of circle of life.
Tinctures’ Heads & Tails tour tied up with TheSoundsWithin to capture their performances on video, and the result is a ten-video series of smooth, flowing sonic goodness that showcases the talent that the duo has to offer.
