Society - - PRIVILEGED INFORMATION -

IF YOU are in the habit of check­ing out YouTube, we are sure you are hum­ming the tunes of ‘The T-se­ries Mix­tape. Cu­rated and com­posed by mu­sic di­rec­tor Ab­hi­jit Vaghani, Mix­tape is based on a new for­mat of mu­sic where sev­eral artistes per­form dif­fer­ent songs mixed to­gether with a com­mon melody, either in the form of a rhythm or tune. Each episode fea­tured well-known singers such as Shaan, Shreya Ghoshal, Ju­bin Nau­tiyal, Ar­maan Ma­lik, Salim Mer­chant and many more along­side wide-rang­ing in­stru­men­tal­ists to cre­ate a soul­ful sound that got the na­tion groov­ing. “Mix­tape was all about cel­e­bra­tion of mu­sic, com­bin­ing the tal­ents and passion of singers and mu­si­cians team­ing up to cre­ate a world of magic that will be cher­ished in the sea­sons to come,” says Ab­hijt. Shreya Ghoshal says, “It was tough for me and Ab­hi­jit Vaghani to se­lect which two songs we should sing for my Mix­tape episode. We fi­nally de­cided on Sun Raha Hai Na from Ashiqui 2 but I wanted to sing Rozana from Naam Sha­bana. The kind of free­dom I got while singing in this episode was amaz­ing. Un­like the orig­i­nal songs, this was not for a film, so there were no bound­aries.” The se­cond sea­son will have 12 episodes, un­like its pre­vi­ous sea­son that had 17 and 26 singers. T-se­ries Mix­tape Sea­son 2 is slated to go on air some­time in De­cem­ber. Do sing along…
