Changing Tracks

Tulsi Kumar (1st December 2016)3343Tulsi Kumar, in an interview to Sayali Parab, talks about her latest song and the trend of recreating tracks

Tulsi Kumar’s voice has always enchanted in songs like Hum mar jayenge and Piya aaye na from Aashiqui 2 and Soch na sake from Airlift. Apart from rendering soft songs, Kumar has successfully pulled off peppy numbers like Saiyyan superstar and Nachange sari raat. Now the young singer is back to making waves with her new song Gulabi 2.0 from Noor.

Kumar disagrees that Gulabi 2.0 is a recreated version of Gulabi aankhen. “I was present when Gulabi 2.0 was being made. It’s not a recreated track; it’s a completely fresh track. Only the main hook of the song has been retained. The earlier track was romantic, while this song has a complete EDM-style music. Interestingly, when the song was being composed and the first few lines were recited, Tere ishq da nasha chadiya ve, Mera dil hi tujhpe adiya ve, I had no idea that it would lead to Gulabi.”

Keen to get her listeners to see her in a different vocal style, Kumar reveals, “I asked Amaal Mallik to increase the scale of the song in order to make me sound different, in a way in which audiences have not heard me yet. I sound very rugged and that has really worked. The best thing is, I dubbed the song in one go. I have not done too many dance tracks as my main forte is singing melodious romantic song. So I am glad with this track my listeners will get to hear a different voice of Tulsi.”

Kumar feels it’s unfair to compare an old song with the recreated version. “The only reason recreations are in vogue is because today’s youth loves them. All you have to do is package them to sound contemporary but you have to handle it with a lot of care.”

Sharing her views on the current scenario in the  music industry, she comments, “I think the good part is there is a lot of new talent compared to a time when there was only a handful of singers. Social media platforms are playing a big role by offering young and fresh talent a chance to showcase their skills. There are so many voices that it’s hard to distinguish kisne kaunsa gaana gaaya hai.”
