Mumbai, July 5 (IANS) For singer Shaan, the positive impact that music creates on listeners is important. That’s one reason he avoids songs with regressive or negative connotations.
“Music has always been a stress buster, a companion in your different moods and situations. Listening to good music that is sonic soothing is very important. Music that trembles in its sound and content can be very harmful. It induces negativity and aggression in your subconscious. I stay away from songs that have regressive or negative connotations, ”Shaan said.
Speaking about the responsibility of a musician to heal people with their music in the midst of the continuing depressive times of the pandemic, the singer added: “I definitely want my music to have a positive impact on my listeners. I try to keep a subtle message in my songs while entertaining the audience. It is also important that I update my music to suit the young people in terms of sound, lyrics and composition. And while I’ve ventured into different genres, I make sure not to cross the line. After all, it is a social and moral responsibility for a singer to bring positive change through music. ”
Shaan’s latest single “Tera hissa hoon”, which talks about father-son bands, was recently released on the occasion of Father’s Day and has already crossed a million views on YouTube.
“I had written and composed Tera hissa hoon a few months ago, but released it on Father’s Day when it came with the idea of the song. I felt this feeling needed to be addressed. Old parents do not deserve to be abandoned or neglected. They need to be prioritized by their children. Do not wait until it is too late, ”he said.
The video shows Shaan with his younger son Shubh.
Opening up why the decision to cast his son in the video shared the singer: “When Shubh played the younger me, there could not be a better cast as he looks a lot like me. What was surprisingly surprising was that he is a better actor too! Very natural and discreet. He would always get it right in his recording. ”
Are his sons Soham and Shubh planning to take up music professionally in their father’s footsteps? ”
Both my sons Soham and Shubh are musically inclined. Soham has already produced and released a hip hop, RnB album (Citimall) and quite a few singles with young artists. He is studying music at USC in LA. “Shubh enjoys Bollywood music and trains hard to be an ace singer,” Shaan said.
“I am very pleased with their progress, but do not intend to interfere in the process. They need to find their own space and create their own identity, ”he suggested.
