‘Today music is seen, not heard’
What are the projects that are keeping you busy now?
I’m working on an album of devotional songs that are based on ragas, are Indian at heart, but have an international feel. I’m also in the process of setting up a new record label that will focus on non-film music. And talent for this will not be judged depending on what a panel of judges says or what the TRP ratings say or what the person looks like. Pure music will be the criteria. Apart from this, my work on experimenting with different forms of foIk music continues.
How do you compare non-film music today with what it was 10 years ago?
Today music is seen rather than heard...the video is more important than the audio. When I started making music, I did so out of Delhi, not Mumbai. And I made music that had nothing to do with Bollywood. People used to laugh at me then. After all, anyone who wanted to make a mark
