Committee's Purpose:

  1. Select new TSOMs through Taranaa Team and previous TSOMs’ inputs.
  2. On demand, keep the whole community better informed on who is starring as the next TSOM.
  3. Give ample time to new TSOMs to showcase their talent to the whole community.

Committee's Responsibilities:

  1. Identify possible TSOMs through Taranaa Team and members' inputs and come up with a tentative list of nominees.
  2. Approach SOM nominees for a time slot and get them agreed for one.
  3. Periodically apply the formal/informal criteria to the nominees in the list and inform members of the selection of the nominee to appear as next TSOM.

Number of Committee Members:
This committee will comprise of an odd total number of members and minimum of three members.

Selection Process

Taranaa SOM Selection Requirements:

  1. The nominee must be a licensed Taranaa member.
  2. No member can nominate himself or herself.
  3. Each SOM nominee must have sung a minimum of 6 songs in more than one SOW events.
  4. Each SOM nominee should have communicated with other members on the forum through at least 10 posts.


Taranaa SOM Selection Criteria: (still being developed & discussed)
Based on discussions of TSOM Selection Committee and previous forum posts, the committee has come up with the following criteria parameters:

  1. Talent
  2. Seniority
  3. Availability

SOM Preparation Guidelines

Following suggestions are very highly recommended by the selection committee:

  1. Send the selection committee your introduction, interview, picture, and the list of initial songs you want to post for the presentation as soon as you receive the invitation letter.
  2. It is recommended to prepare about 8 to 12 “new” (never before published) songs for the whole month.
  3. We suggest that you prepare at least 4-6 songs for your initial presentation and then add songs every week to keep the audience engaged! For these initial songs, select at least two people to provide you feedback. This feedback should help you in your further recordings.
  4. You may want to have a good mix of solos and duets.
  5. It is also highly recommended to sing songs of as many original singers as you possibly can instead of singing songs by only your favorite singer(s).
  6. You may want to try to distribute duets amongst as many Taranaa co-singers as possible.

SOM Presentation

The TSOM presentation consists of three parts: introduction, interview, & songs. We will discuss the first two here:

(A) Introduction:
In introduction, nominees may choose any or all of the following topics:

  1. Background, origin, etc
  2. Family
  3. Hobbies
  4. Passion for music
  5. Affiliation with music or music industry in any way
  6. Anecdotes, stories, or anything you would like to share with your audience.

(B) Interview:
Nominees should answer the following questions as best as they can. Taranaa audience would love to know their response to the following:

  1. Who encouraged you to sing early on?
  2. How encouraging is your family towards your pursuit of musical interest? Does your spouse have hang-ups about your staring at the “red screen” at every given opportunity? ;)
  3. Can you describe in your words what good singing means? And what is the most important aspect of good singing, sur, taal, diction, poetry, feelings, or sounding like the original singer?
  4. Would you like to share some weaknesses of your singing and your effort to improve them?
  5. Do you think certain foods affect or help your singing?
  6. If at all, you get a chance to choose and sing with any male/female Bollywood singer, who would that be? Why?
  7. Who do you style your singing after? If no one, then what do you think is your singing style?
  8. What aspects of Taraana.com made you decide to become a member?
  9. If you have to suggest some improvements for Taraana.com what would they be?
  10. Do you record in a studio or home? What equipment do you use for home recording?
  11. Would you like to receive feedback in public (Taranaa forum) or through private messages? What aspects should be considered carefully while giving feedback in public?
  12. Lastly, if you were to add five (5) new tracks of your choice to Taranaa library, what would those tracks be?
