There is no technique in folk music: Ila Arun

MUMBAI: On 8 September 2016 the auditorium of Whistling Woods International was vibrated with unheard whistles and cheers of excited students when Ila Arun, a noted popular Rajasthani folk/folk-pop singer walked up the stage.

The cultural music session was initiated to help WWI students understand the nuances of folk songs and the detailing of folk songs. The session began with an interesting AV on various forms of folk music that evolved with time and how is the art celebrated these days.

While talking about it, Ila Arun said, "There is no technique in folk music. I am not from any Gharana either. My first teacher was Raghunath, who was a servant at our place. He used to sing different tones and I picked up my love for folk music from there. "

The 5th Veda session with Ila Arun highlighted the era of folk-Pop and folk music in mainstream Indian Cinema. The lively singer was full of energy and in sync, with the crowd in the auditorium as she shared her journey to fame in the industry. As usual Ila Ji was vibrant and electrifying, as she engaged with the audiences by performing on hit numbers, 'Choli Ke Peeche', 'Ringa Ringa', 'Haule Haule' to name a few.

According to her, "Nothing is incorrect in folk and fusion music. Folk music is significant as it makes you original; it also has a strong bond with our Indian roots and culture. I can't go for systematic singing while recording or facing a live audience. I have to be involved with the essence of the song."

The session was moderated by Subhash Ghai, WWI, Founder and Chairman.
