I do not like people calling me an indie artiste: Mihir Joshi

MUMBAI: Juggling the role of an RJ, musician and an anchor, Mihir Joshi has come a long way and is a well known artiste. Joshi will also soon launch a new album called 'Mumbai Blues'.

Talking to about the thought behind the name- 'Mumbai Blues' he said, "The album is called "Mumbai Blues" not because it has songs about Mumbai, but because it is blues/blues-rock music from Mumbai! The album has songs about love, heartbreak, traffic jams, potholes and even Sachin Tendulkar. Basically all the things that give a regular Indian the blues."

According to him one cannot tag music as independent or Bollywood, "Never can I understand the concept of a Bolllywood and indie artiste. I do not like people calling me an indie artist. My album is launched by Times Music International, which is not limited to India or a particular place. I can perform anywhere in the world so instead of calling me an indie artist I would love to be known as an international artiste." He is also open to singing for Bollywood as laungue actually does not matter to him. "I can even sing a song in Marathi as long as the song is good," he further added.

The biggest inspiration for Joshi is his father, who started working at a very early age and today is the director of a Government organisation. When asked about which of the roles does he enjoy, to which he promptly replied, "I love the role of a performer on stage. I think I was born for entertaining the audiences with my songs."
