Romance with the camera.

“It is really difficult. As singers, we go to the recording studio and be ‘in the zone’ for the song. But facing the camera is another thing altogether — I’m scared.” Singer-designer Tanvi Shah used to shudder at the thought of facing a camera. But all that will change now. For, her latest single ‘Call It Love’ features the singer dancing in Indian costumes, doing a bit of belly-dancing and well, singing.
The song itself is the English version of her Spanish number. “JHawk, my music producer in Los Angeles, and I were jamming on a few things and this stood out. He insisted on having an Indian element in the song… and that’s how I came in to it!”

We’re Jerkin (Starring the New Boyz, JHawk and Pink Dollaz)
Jeff Weiss Aug 2009
Everyone started jerkin’ last year. When the kids returned from summer vacation, it was like they’d contracted some rare virus. A tsetse-fly bite in reverse, but rather than sleeping sickness, teenagers from Long Beach to Lancaster started getting geeked up ... a dancing dominoes of flailing limbs, skinny jeans and fluorescent accessorizing. Jerkin’ at talent shows and on top of lunchroom tabletops. Jerkin’ in parking lots and bus stops, underground teen clubs, every single function (party), and, of course, on YouTube. Much of Los Angeles’ 18-and-under population was jerkin’ — presumably because they were the only ones young enough not to snicker at the term’s historically self-flagellating connotation.
Every generation has its own rites and rituals, but they all share the desire to delineate themselves from their predecessors and create something unique. L.A. natives were never going to ghost-ride the whip, that’s a Bay Area thing. The “Crank That” dance and “Stanky Leg” were cool, but that was the Dirty South’s thing. And no one wanted to rock khakis and oversized white tees anymore. I mean, you’re really going to gangbang? That’s so ’90s. Besides, Ice Cube said it best: Gangstas don’t dance, they boogie.
