Prakriti joins Amaal in his T-Series MixTape debut

MUMBAI: Singer and music composer Amaal Mallik and Prakriti Kakar's debut appearance on the latest episode of T-Series MixTape Season 2, will leave you spellbound. The duo has crooned a medley of Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon along with Dil Kyun Yeh Mera Shor Kare from the Bollywood movie, Kites.

Commenting on his debut on MixTape, Amaal shares, “I am collaborating with Prakriti Kakar for the songs Dil Kyun Yeh Mera Shor Kare and my song Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon. Abhijit Vaghani and I had worked on the latter number earlier. And this time, too, we have come together for it, with the only difference being that I am performing and singing the song.”

“It feels great to work on it again in a different setting with so many musicians. When I had created Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon it was a non-film song so I did it my way. Dil Kyun Yeh Mera Shor Kare, is a film song, so we got a chance to make a different arrangement and use different instruments. A concept like MixTape allows you to change the genre of production,” he further adds.

Prakriti also adds on the concept of MixTape and how it has helped her connect with the audience. She shares, “I was a part of T-series MixTape Season 1 and had sung Agar Tum Saath Ho and Maahi Ve. The love, I received for the earlier season was incredible. In fact even today, when I do live shows, I get requests to sing Agar Tum Saath Ho live. This proves the reach of MixTape among the audience. Everyone likes the idea of mashups now. So, for T-series to make a property like this and make it available easily is great. Abhijit Vaghani is definitely going to kill it this time too.”

Produced by Bhushan Kumar, music director Abhijit Vaghani shares, what makes this episode is different. He reveals, “In this track, we have gone off tempo and come back. Initially, Amaal was a little sceptical, but it turned out really well. There was a harpist, a string session, which was a mix of foreigners and Indians and classical style of phrasing in terms of the orchestra. There was also a Jaltarang where the pitching is graded with the water level. We decided to cast a lot of Indian instruments, who haven’t been featured in a lot of videos recently. So we wanted to incorporate them in the song. Prakriti and Amaal have done a great job and the track has turned out to be great.”
