Watch Amazing India's travel guitar series with Kapil Srivastava

MUMBAI: From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, guitarist Kapil Srivastava is leaving no stone unturned to showcase India’s unity in diversity with the help of his guitar skills. Under the Amazing India, World record Attempt project he has pledged to compose/record 300+ compositions and video shot at 300+ different spots in India. He has already started shooting at various locations for the project.

Kapil recently shot the ‘Tere Mere Honton Pe’ song at Espresso Bar, Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh.

On asking Kapil about its reason to create such project, he replied, “My objective is to bridge the beauty and culture of India using this project to today’s youth and as well as global tourists. Just like each song that I compose/record each location is also special to me and my creative team is also selective about suggesting me to create the song as per the spot.”

Kapil and his crew traveled from Delhi to Dharamshala to shoot his next song, under Amazing India Project of 300 destinations and is travelling, ‘Tere Mere Hothon Pe’ song is one of them which he improvised, re-arranged and re-recorded in his own ‘Guitaristic’ instrumental style (in G-Major) especially for this moment.

“The reason I choose this song to shoot at Espresso Bar is because 'Tere Mere Hothon Pe' always gives me two feelings i.e. (1) Nostalgic and (2) Nature Blessing on us (hills, waterfall, solitude), and Espresso bar justifies both in the best manner,” added Kapil.

Kapil improvised/played and arranged all the original songs instruments part as fillers, counter fillers, strings on the guitar itself using all three octaves. The most amazing part of this song is the start of the melody. The alaap part is played in Flute. Kapil has beautifully transformed that part in guitar, which is a mark of excellence and never heard reference of the guitar so far.

People who do not know, he has composed music for a Bollywood film ‘Dubai Returns’, also released guitar duet release with Grammy-winning musician Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt in 2016 for the composition ‘Merry Love Rain’.
