    You cannot contain the heart. Just ask Indian-American singer-songwriter Subhi. Her debut album titled 'Shaitaan Dil' means 'Naughty Heart'. Inspired by Chicago Jazz and fused with Hindi and Urdu poetry, Subhi's playful, melodious songs chronicle the delights and downsides of romance, but with a twist. Her tales reflect the torments of separation and transcontinental migration, experiences both deeply Indian and deeply American. The playful results mark Subhi's arrival on a scene where few South Asian women wind up. The album is an interesting blend of South Asian Pop, Jazz and everything in between.
