A Tribute to the Little Master

With the 'Bharat Ratna' bestowed on the Little Master, there has been more love showering on the Master Blaster  with messages from Cricket lovers, aspiring cricketers , critics etc. As Sachin was knocked off a for 74-run on the 15th of November, everyone's eyes missed a blink. To make sure all Sachin fans relive the 'Sachin' moments, many initiatives from various forums across the country have been commenced. One such initiative by Jithin Roshan is the exclusive track "We Miss you Sachin", a musical tribute to the Little Master instilling a feeling of a 'strong bond' with the player himself for any listener.
The farewell tribute has been released in two languages, Tamil and English. Richard has penned down the lyrics in English while Raajee has contributed for the Tamil version lyrics. The song does not fail to embellish a full repertoire of classy shots of the 'God of Cricket' during the radiant 24-year career.
The track runs for just four and a half minutes but the lyrics does not fail to capture the hearts of all listeners. The singer conveys that the strong emotion of 'missing' the player on field. Attributing to the greatest Batsman of all times, he salutes the God of Cricket. The aura that Sachin Tendulkar has created for the country he brings out the essence that right anyone's childhood, he used to be the star on field. The song conveys that Cricket without Sachin is Life without heartbeat. The emotional appeal of the song captures how 'Cricket' as a game will never be the same after Sachin's retirement. Thanking Sachin for the best 'Cricket Moments', the singer instills an emotion that the game by itself may always be bigger than Sachin, but the key point is that the game will surely miss the 'Master Blaster' innings.
One must remember that although so many years went by after that elusive World Cup, the hunger inside Sachin never died. The man bought laurels for the country, the man who can never be replaced by another player.For all the Cricket fans, Sachin is and will always be one of the brightest days of cricket but he is not ageless. If you do miss him, just tune in to this wonderful song which will surely traverse you to a world of reminiscences.

Is ‘HIPNATIC’ Here to stay?

With a whirl of fusion taking over the music industry, it is interesting to understand that in the coming years, the evolution of ‘Hipnatic’ may conquer the hearts of many music lovers. For those wondering what ‘Hipnatic’ is, it is nothing but mixing Carnatic Music with Hip-Hop beats !

Considering it as a innovative way of packaging music to reach out to the audience at large, ‘Hipnatic’ will not only cater to the current mindset of the youth but will also in a way help Carnatic music enthusiasts rush back to ever-green ‘Keerthanams’ and ‘Varnams’ in a new ‘avatar’. The merging of the two different genres will definitely appeal to the youngsters but may not to the conservative Carnatic music lovers.

Keeping in mind, the recent songs in the Tamil film industry music, for instance ‘Enamo Yedho’ from the movie ‘Ko’, we witnessed inclusion of ‘Rap’ and when analyzing the mass appeal that the song created, it was definitely a hit. But the other facet to be thought of is whether such inclusion involving various genres in film music, is diverging the original genre leading to loss in the uniqueness of the genus?

Considering that Classical music has stirred off its platform to assume a position amongst various other magnificent genres of music across the world, it is essential we understand how ‘Hipnatic’ may change the scenario. Talking in specific about the Carnatic Music genre, a non- Carnatic music lover may speculate if the genre as a whole is dying and hence are these mere ways to keep it alive? But one can argue that it is the prejudice revolving around classical music, that it is a thing of the ‘times of yore’ may also be the reason why music enthusiasts are coming up with such new genres, with a touch of Carnatic music appeal. On the contrary, we could even say that such innovations may in a way harm the classical music landscape and may fragment it further.

Thus we can argue that by bringing out such new genres, it may clanger Carnatic music’s lasting effect on culture but we can also see it positively and attribute it as a silent renaissance in progress. We can conclude that such ‘additions’ to classical music has occurred due to changes in culture, which in turn has exaggerated and distorted the musical needs. We can still approve of, value and love Carnatic music and sustain it, considering it is the pride of South India. On the other hand, such new evolutions can also be accepted and mulled over in addition to the ocean of ‘Carnatic Music’.
