Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Com­poser-singer Shankar Ma­hade­van (top), feels that singer Ari­jit Singh (be­low) is go­ing to get work in the mu­sic industry for a long time as he is an ed­u­cated mu­si­cian. “Ari­jit Singh is go­ing to stay for a long time. He knows his mu­sic and un­der­stands his ‘sargam’. He has got depth. I knew him even be­fore he be­came Ari­jit Singh ... he is an ed­u­cated mu­si­cian,” says Shankar. “If you are a mu­si­cian of a very high cal­iber and your aes­thet­ics of mu­sic is high, you will stay for a long time. It’s dif­fi­cult to sus­tain, but if you have got qual­ity, then you will es­tab­lish your­self. There needs to be depth in your mu­sic.”

He feels that mu­sic in Bol­ly­wood keeps evolv­ing with time. “Mu­sic keeps trend­ing with the changes that hap­pen in the story. It’s like fash­ion. But with changes, you have to main­tain its sanc­tity and es­thet­ics, which are ‘sur’ and ‘taal’,” Shankar says.
