'Recognition comes to those who are good'

 While he enthralled the audience with yet another spellbinding performance in the City  recently, he also took some time out to chat with Metrolife on his life, music and other trivialities.

About coping with back-to-back concerts, he said, “the song line-up usually changes based on the crowd and the kind of response I get. It can get very hectic but I enjoy it nevertheless.”

When asked about his experience at Palace Grounds during the Durga Puja celebrations, he said, “I was amazed to see that the audience here has such a good ear for retro music. The event was an eye-opener because for the first time I saw so many young people cherishing old classics.”

Shaan also had the opportunity to be part of the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. About the event, he said, “It was definitely a fascinating experience but could have been made a lot more exciting, had it been planned a little better. The idea was nice but they fell short during the implementation and execution of the entire event.”

On a heavier note, discussing the changes in the music industry, he said, “it is sad but in today’s scenario, more importance is given to voice quality and how different it sounds rather then the fundamentals of music. It is very essential to have the basic knowledge about music in place. Someone who is new to the industry has to really wait for a break, patience is mandatory if they want to make it big in the industry.”

As a word of encouragement for youngsters, he also added that real talent needn’t worry as recognition comes to people who are good.

About new albums in the making, he said he is working on an album titled Har Lamha. “The songs are all relationship based and describe the different stages of a relationship,” he said elaborating on the album. 

Shaan had sometime back tried his hand at acting. When asked if he had any more acting plans lined up, he said with a smile, “It was just a mistake and I don’t repeat mistakes.”
