Art work for Chai by Jewel Lasrado

Chai is a composition that transcends musical genres, weaving together bossa nova, soft rock and indie elements. It is a poignant reflection on resilience and finding tranquillity amidst life’s challenges. Each verse delves into the intricacies of an existential crisis, articulating a range of life’s adversities. The chorus, however, stands as Jewel Lasrado’s steadfast declaration: “When the world’s on fire, I’ll be sipping chai.” This refrain encapsulates the core message of the song — the ability to seek solace and embrace a carefree spirit even in the face of adversity. Jewel penned the song during an evening marked by challenges, yet found solace in the simple act of sipping chai.
