RovingPittsburgher, Roving Pittsburgher Report, Fallen Woman Theme Inspires Once Again in "La Triviata." 

by Hometown Tourist, Clarine Lizana


The story of a fallen woman with a noble heart has inspired theater and opera goers for centuries.

La Traviata translates as The Fallen Woman , a subject that may seem a little trite and sexist in this day and age. The heart of the story, however, deals with the life choices made by young people of every age, the decision to lead a life of hedonistic pleasure, or a life of true devotion.

Loudini Interviews Vijay of InRegalia

Born in Mangalore, Vijay's talent was imminent at an early age having won several local guitar and singing competitions. Music, though took a back seat for six years due to the pressure of academics. But destiny had other plans and brought him back to where he belonged - playing music. The journey from an acoustic folk guitarist to an accomplished Rock Lead/Rhythm guitarist has brought with it experience in Rock & Soul bands to which he blends in pop and ethnic sensibilities. Some of his guitar heroes and influences are Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore and Angus Young. "The journey to musical fulfillment is endless " he says.

Loudini interviews Mega X Band

Tracked in an illegal Brooklyn apartment over a two year jaunt, the burnished urban organic art-rock of MXB, transmutes the listener's reality to madcap flights through a cosmic metropolis. Sounding like a glowing multi-colored back room of a dive bar, and you sitting there having imbibed some firey distillate, Diamond Hits mixes up a stylistic cocktail of back beat drum licks, distortion guitar groove, well turned lyrics and layered leather coat vocals.
