Sadasivan KM Nambisan aka Sadu, one of the voices from the popular ‘90s band Aryans, recently came out with a romantic single ‘Hor Kinne Suboot’. Vocalist, lyricist, composer and a founder member of Aryans, Sadu’s name has been associated with chartbusters like ‘Aankhon Mein Tera Hi Chehra’, ‘Dekha Hai Teri Aankhon Ko’ and ‘Yeh Hawa Kehti Hai Kya’.
The song ‘Hor Kinne Suboot’ is about a man pledging his undying love to the love of his life. “I am basically from Kerala and I have tried my hands at Punjabi for the first time with this song. Now, I have been writing in Hindi right from my early days and so it’s been never tough. For this song I wrote a few lines in Hindi and asked a friend of mine who knows Punjabi to translate it. So when I sang the song I felt that the Punjabi version sounded much better than the Hindi one. That’s when we decided to write the entire song in Punjabi only. Deeksha Dudeja co-wrote it with me. We then shot the video in Mumbai,” reveals Sadu who came out with another single titled ‘Mausam’ back in December last year.
After a hiatus Sadu is finally able to do what he loves most. “Independent music is hardly supported by music companies nowadays. The scene earlier was very different but then the internet took over as cassettes and subsequently CDs stop selling. So around the years 2003 the music companies stopped showing interest in independent artists. Now, it requires a considerable amount of money to make good music and that’s why we had to go away. But then I started my own pharmaceuticals company. Today again I am in a position to make my own music and so I am back,” explains Sadu.
Sadu’s new innings as a singer in the internet era started in 2014 when he came out with two songs titled ‘Haseen Gunah’ and ‘Mohabbat Mein’. “Both the songs are fusion in the style of ghazal rock. The lyrics are by Jigar Moradabadi and I have both sung and composed them. You will rarely find the combination of drums and ghazal. You can find both these songs on my YouTube channel,” reveals Sadu.
Sadu, however, isn’t too excited by the current music scene in the country. “The only positive changes that I have been experiencing in today’s music are to do with the quality of sound which I feel is getting better and better day by day. But, unfortunately, there has been dip in the quality of lyrics and style of singing. All the time I can just see cover songs happening or the remixes. It’s like putting your name plate on someone else’s home. I believe that’s a wrong way of showing your art. So clearly there is a great lack of originality. Also, we are seeing a lot of regional work now. But I am afraid I don’t see much of Grammy winning international quality work right now,” says a regretful Sadu.
Sadu feels that film songs tend to “make a fool of the audiences because the song is actually sung by the singer but someone else does lip syncing on it and that’s what the audiences get to see.” Sadu is committed to bringing back the era of music with simple melodies and nice lyrics. “Beyond sky-high plugins and fancy gadgets, a simple melody can truly stand out,” sums up Sadu.
