Let's talk about life !

Not often in Marathi do you have new faces breaking the barrier to give you a fresh sound and a fresh style. Marathi music/theatre has always been the domain of established poets and music director-singer combos. This formula gave us years of amazing music, but with PuLa's passing away and the ending of the Yashawant Dev, Madgulkar, Kusumagraj era the most that the Marathi creative scene can boast of are a few decent actors most notably Atul Kulkarni and Shreyas Talpade, who might be better known to Hindi audiences.

However a new duo of Salil Kulkarni and Sandip Khare has emerged on the music scene. Both are quite young, come from a predominantly science background (with Sandip being an engineer from COEP) and most importantly they bring a fresh new youthful face to Marathi arts. Sandip is the lyricist/music director while Salil mostly sings the songs. Their first show Aayushyawar Boolu Kaahi . . .(Lets talk about life) is a smash hit and is running to packed houses in an art-famished city. Their second programme/album 'Namanjoor' (Not acceptable) is also an amazing collection of songs and should do extremely well.

They sing about the various facets of life, about the common man accepting life's restrictions, about our two minds, about the rebellious youth breaking society's restrictions and they strike a chord in the heart. The words are definitely the plus point and hopefully with some experience the duo should be able to realize the nuances of the trade and become a bit more professional with the technical aspects of recording/singing/composing.

So here's wishing Salil/Sandip a long career giving us fresh soulful songs. Till then to both of them, bon chance!

Hi. Yes 'Aayushyawar Boolu Kaahi' was an amazing experience.Simple yet soulful. Am really looking fwd to 'Namanjoor'.

Anand said...

Didn't quite grasp which art form they perform--?

Any schedules/itinerary on offer ?

Rebellious y.---:Nice sense of humour !

Admit it pal, how is everybody from COEP so full of epiphany in a jiffy ? Kuch to hai :)

Aditya : Namanjoor is available on CD if u want. I don't think they are going to have performances of that.

Anand : They have a show - mostly songs with anecdotes/commentary in between. Mostly shows in popular 'natyagruhas' in Pune. But mumbai should be on the radar. Dunno if you check the local marathi dailies, but should find stuff there .

As for COEP, it's probably some sudden realization that you can do something else in the place!
