Hi! I’m Kadambari and this is my self indulgent attempt at sound tracking your day with the most delicious tunes you’ve never (or maybe) heard.
Welcome to chooncracker, where I’ll invade your ears with all sorts of songs for all sorts of times.
I’m a mixtape maniac, radio addict and music nerd, associating tunes with eating, showering, dreaming, hibernating, ignoring, smiling, missing, kissing, dining, wining, dancing and pretty much stumbling my way through the days and weeks (with headphones on, obviously).
I’m currently surviving Mumbai, working at Sony on playlists and compilations.
This is dedicated to Annie Mac, the ultimate airplay gangsta, mash up monsta, bassline blender, choon bandit, curation QUEEN, my biggest, craziest, loveliest inspiration. Hi Annie, I love you!
I studied Ethnomusicology (yep, try saying it out loud) at the weird and wonderful School of Oriental & African Studies in my favourite home, London.
My first ‘office’ space after graduation was the Royal Albert Hall, I still don’t believe it. I then obsessively tracked playlists at every radio station in Europe at an internship with a radio plugger, interned at the surreal and perfectly nutty indie label Ninja Tune, and THEN studied the UK Top 40 radio airplay charts at Nielsen Music. I moved back (not out of choice) to New Delhi, India and died without music. Now I’m in Mumbai and it’s kind of fun!
WELCOME TO MY ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK, WIPE YOUR FEET AT THE DOOR, TUNE IT AND ZONE OUT!
