Indian music driven by films, says Palash Sen
"Our music industry is driven by films. We are not driven by music per se," Sen told IANS.
He says the problem lies in the fact that the singer starts focussing on how the song will turn out visually.
"What happens is when singing a song, the singer will sing with the perspective of how it will look on the screen. That's the problem," the singer-composer said on the sidelines of the grand finale of a singing competition, Voice of McDonald's, here Monday.
The 46-year-old, who fronts popular band Euphoria, believes whether it is fast-paced songs like "Dhinka chika" or melodious ghazals, all kinds of music can co-exist in the country, and a conducive mix is extremely important.
