Never felt bad that the rope was famous for doing covers: Sanam Puri


Sanam Puri and his rope is renouned for bolllywood coversSanam Puri and his rope is renouned for bolllywood covers Sanam Puri is a voice behind a chartbuster “Ishq Bulava” from Hasee To Phasee.

A decade after a late ’90s, that will always be remembered for a birth of distraction of aged Bollywood numbers, if there is one eccentric artist who has given a trend a pull lately, it’s Sanam – a organisation behind hugely renouned covers like “Mere Sapno Ki Rani”, “Lag Jaa Gale” and “Gulabi Aankhe”.

For 8 years into a existence, a organisation has consistently enjoyed being among a tip YouTube stars, and while a listeners have grown wearied of Bollywood’s new mania with recreating classics, they have no such complaints from Sanam.

But a band, that comprises 4 members – Sanam Puri (frontman), Venkat Subramaniyam (bass player), Samar Puri and Keshav Dhanraj, like any other organisation always wanted to be famous for a strange strain and hence, it is vital a artistic high right now as a lass strange single, “Sanam Mennu”, was out on a digital height usually dual months ago and became a strike within days of a release.

In an speak with indianexpress.com over an email, a rope members speak about their new single, their tour from demure cover musicians, to being among a faces of a eccentric strain stage in a nation today.

What was a suspicion behind “Sanam Mennu” and what was a routine like?

Samar: we came adult with a guitar riff while we were off to a airfield in Kerala after a “Ae kaash ke hum” shoot. we asked Sanam to make some tune around that riff and he came adult with hymn and chorus. Later we called lyricist Siddhant Kaushal to a place and took a common preference to keep a strain in Punjabi and a thesis of a strain was described by Sanam, something he has gifted in a relationship. The strain was combined in a really disobedient and witty style. The whole routine that includes strain programming, recording and blending took about a few months as concurrently we were also operative on a other songs and travelling for concerts.

Independent strain from a ’90s dead in 2000s. Now, with internet, it seems indie artistes have got behind a platform. Also, your recognition proves there’s an assembly for eccentric music. How do we demeanour during this scene? Would we censure Bollywood for eating adult a marketplace of eccentric music?

Venkat: There are really some-more eccentric artistes currently than there were in a ’90s. we adore examination these acts live when they perform during several strain venues and strain festivals opposite a country. Bollywood has also turn many bigger as an industry; a lot of musicians from a eccentric strain stage also work in a film attention or work on strain jingles as session’s musicians, composers, strain directors etc.

It’s a earnest strain scene; it’s indispensable for eccentric strain acts to keep pulling bounds creatively, putting in hours shedding/working on their low-pitched chops and also anticipating something honest to contend in their songs. Talent government is also essential for pulling a artist towards a right instruction and we really got this from a manager and his team. Digital streaming platforms like YouTube have helped us immensely as we’ve gotten to strech audiences opposite a creation by a strain videos.

How formidable is it to say a change between formulating originals and doing covers? Are there moments of dispute and concede given there is a territory of listeners, that identifies your rope with ‘covers’?

Sanam: For certain primarily it wasn’t an easy preference for us to get into doing renditions though we suspicion it was best to do that to deliver a sound by giving everybody something familiar. No doubt we have waited a prolonged time to put a originals out and there are many some-more left from years ago. Which is given we feel now is a right time to put out a originals as many as possible.

Yes, people consider we are a cover rope given of a series of renditions we’ve finished and it’s really healthy for everybody to feel that. But we don’t feel bad about it during all given we got a event to deliver today’s era to a lot of retro songs that we felt everybody indispensable to hear and we’ve perceived an intensely certain response. But now it’s time we introduced songs we’ve combined ourselves and we also feel it is a right time given of a subscribers we have and not usually that. People have been seeking for strange songs.

In that scenario, is it formidable to leave a symbol in a strange strain space?

Sanam: Difficulty is a biased term. We don’t feel it is formidable or easy. It’s like when people use a difference onslaught and success. It’s opposite for all. We usually wish to combine on creation songs, good or bad we don’t know given that is again subjective. And as prolonged as a originals prove us as musicians and people are amatory them, it creates us happy. And we usually wish to urge a sound as many as we can and that’ll occur from doing as many originals as possible. It’s a tour with no set destination. We trust in enjoying a routine and vital a happy life but putting too many vigour on ourselves.

Which ubiquitous artistes/bands change Sanam band. Also, is there anyone in sold we would like to combine with?

Keshav: Each of us have such opposite influences and continue to do so as we grow. Samar enjoys listening to everything. No specific genre, character or language. From European bands like Radiohead, U2, Muse, etc to Lebanese/Arabic singers like Nancy Ajram, Elissa, Wael Kfoury to Punjabi songs, aged Hindi songs to whatever you
can consider of. In general, he loves to learn new strain all a time.

Venky listens to a lot of African-American strain genres, namely artists like BB King, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and James Brown. Sanam doesn’t like to listen to strain that has vocals. He prefers instrumentals, credentials scores of video games, western exemplary strain etc. His stream favourite artists are Nobuo Uematsu and Joe Hisaishi. Listening to strain but vocals helps him keep his compositions fresh.

My favourites keep changing. For me, it’s some-more about a strain than a artiste. we suffer listening to strain production, outspoken melodies, engaging rhythms and grooves. So my playlist ranges from pop, to hip-hop, rock, metal, Punjabi songs, Bollywood and many recently some of my aged favourite Tamil film songs (from a film Roja and Gentlemen). Overall, Sanam is a brew of all a influences during opposite times. We try to mix in all a ideas into a work. We also suffer training new ideas from any other.
