Why Kalank’s first song made Pritam nervous
By Bandook - March 18, 2019
Pritam is quite excited about the release of Ghar More Pardesiya, the tnew song from Kalank launched today.
Says the Bollywood composer, “I haven’t done a period film before this. Kalank being the first one is making me extremely nervous.”
Describing his apprehension about the genre, he adds,” It’s a genre which made me wonder initially if I would be able to do justice or not…”
Speaking specifically about the song, Pritam says, “This is my first song picturised on kathak visuals and this is a raag-based song. The dance is against the backdrop of Ramayan, where this is a love song of Sita.”
Describing the song Pritam says, “I have collaborated with a lot of Indian musicians, which is very exciting. I rarely get to do this kind of stuff. Also the young audience today, don’t get to hear Bollywood songs that are raag-based, and in classical and in pure kathak form. So, I hope this song works and I can promote more of kathak and classical music among the youth.”>
