MixTape S2: Salim, Jonita's camaraderie blends with mesmerizing melody!

MUMBAI: The fourth episode of Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series Mixtape Season 2 is a powerful melange of melody and rhythm. Presented by two ace singers Salim Merchant and Jonita Gandhi, the song has a blend of two famous songs, Dil Mein Ho Tum (Why Cheat India) and Galliyan (Ek Villain). Also, featuring talented instrumentalists for percussion, rhythm, strings, the episode commences with a solo cello to set the mood of the song. Also, Salim and Jonita voices have blended harmoniously with the mesmerizing tunes while their chemistry is a emblem of their long-lasting friendship.

Speaking on the concept of MixTape, Salim Merchant further says, “I was part of Season 1 too and had no idea that it would receive such a tremendous response. I like properties like MixTape as it has created a different audience in itself. It allows us to express our music, vocals and represent the song in our own personality, which is really nice. Respect should be given to Abhijit Vaghani who has done a brilliant job working on all the songs.”

On teaming with Jonita, he adds, “I am performing along with Jonita Gandhi on the songs Galliyan and Dil Mein Ho Tum. There is a very unique element in the song where we both sing Galliyan in harmony together and our voices blend beautifully, which is something worth checking out! Jonita and I share a cool rapport. We have worked together on stage, in studios and now on MixTape, so we share a great comfort level.”

Jonita Gandhi also shares, “This is feel-easy version. There are a lot of elements incorporated in terms of percussion, rhythm, strings. There is a cello solo in the beginning, which is unique. We are going to be featuring amazing talent in terms of instrumentalists. This song has got a nice Bollywood feel to it, which I like. Additionally, the song is very high. So finding the right key when more than one person is singing is a challenge. We had to find the key that suited Salim and me the best. Initially, it was a little tough for me to sing that high because I am not used to it anymore. If given an option I would prefer singing lower.”

Commenting on mixing two timeless songs, music director Abhijit Vaghani shares, “Galliyan and Dil Mein Ho Tum have some massive music pieces. This time we have concentrated a lot on music. I have managed to create a groove, which is more like using a puneri dhol, but creating a tyco drum.”

The music video has garnered over 57 K views since it released on YouTube.
