Khayalon Si – Kaushik Shukla

8903244379883

A singer-songwriter whose initial claim to success was as a semi-finalist of “Saregamapa”, Kaushik Shukla has been trained in Indian classic music but, although it does not show on “Khayalon Si”, the song – and Kaushik’s voice – still works independently.  Credit for that goes to his backup band consisting of guitarist Ronak Runwal, and percussionist Viraj Sose who, besides drums, has also utilised the West African popularised bongo-sounding djembe to complete the instrumentation. Kaushik, as composer-singer, has taken a simple musical approach that correctly focuses attention on his voice, while singing lyrics provided by Niranjan Pedanekar, which alternate between intimate emotional portraits and deep thoughts.
