We want to keep the singers in us alive: Meet Bros Anjjan | Hindi Movie News - Times of India
What really worked for us since our debut films was that we kept enriching our bank of songs and kept marketing ourselves aggressively with production companies. Before we knew it, we had signed 10 big banner films. What is working now? This year, Boss and Pinky have surely been our trophy songs.
With most music creation and consumption now existing in the digital space most of it being programmeddo you feel that there is a far short-lived connect to and with music, in general? With technological advances, music is available at the tip of your fingers. Similarly, for composers, digital programming is a boon creatively and is also cost-effective. At the same time, end users have the liberty to switch songs in a jiffy as opposed to earlier, when people used to maintain a collection of CDs and cassettes and hear it over and over.
This poses a challenge to the industry as longevity of songs has reduced drastically. Why is the occasional maybe unintended oversight of credits on any medium being taken for granted? How do you suggest this be resolved? The Indian music scene has forever been giving singers the first credit for music, while the real makers of music are the music composers. But things are changing now.

People have started understanding the importance of good music composition and composers have started coming to the forefront. The exposure came to us when we were pretty young. She had her own compilation, a treasure-trove of sorts. She would play that music all day long in our house. Subconsciously, we would keep hearing the numbers and knew them well enough to hum along. It was a very big achievement for us at that point of life.
We just did it for the lark and casually started singing in school and performing on stage. We kind of went with the flow. In a way you may say that we are used to entertain people since childhood. Looking in retrospect we guess, we were born to be who we are today. Music had walked into our lives much before we could realize that it would sweep us off our feet and is here to stay forever.
Both of us have our own favourites like R. We feel, his music was different and he was much ahead of his times. Even today, we party to his songs. We shimmy and groove to his classic tempo and the peppy beats. Truly, there has never been a singer nor there will be one ever like him to emulate his style. He introduced ghazals to the whole country.
With his demise, the semi-classical, melodious genre seems to die down. His vocal chords would lend a magical touch to influence the masses across generations.
The appeal of his hypnotic renditions was never confined to an elite home or an aristocratic household. Even a layman on the street, the proletariat or a simple pan-seller at the roadside shop would be his die-hard patrons.
He brought along a vast wealth of poetic gems and has left behind a formidable legacy to carry forth with care, dedication and nurture. How did your formative years back in Gwalior influence you musically?
Did the local folksy flavours or the regal classical strains help strengthen your basics in music? It is said that if you eat leaves from the tamarind tree, planted by the great musical genius Mian Tansen in Gwalior, it would really boost you with some creative potion. That event had actually set the ball rolling for us to pursue music with our whole heart and soul ahead.
Later on, we took to the stage innumerable times. As siblings how would you guide or support each other while learning or listening to the musical creations?
Luckily, we have been brought up more like friends than just brothers under the same roof. Thankfully, our friend circle has always been common right from the start. So when that happens, you become more like bosom buddies than mere blood relations. Moreover, when you work together for years to make a career, you get even closer. In music and life both, we complement each other and our strengths lie in togetherness.
And our destiny had as if plans in store for us to complete each other. What significant changes have you noticed in musical production and composition over the years? Music has undergone a drastic change in terms of sounds. Earlier, it used be all analog. Everything was very live and tangible.
People would record most of the songs by live instruments. But today, only four to five percent of the sounds and beats in the song is live, while the rest is all digital.
These days, music is by and large available on the digital platforms and we are consuming that only. They fell on the ears more melodiously and soothingly, because they were made with much effort, time and patience. People would tune in to the songs multiple times and the melody would penetrate their senses and linger on for long. People are always on the go, managing hectic schedules from pillar to post.
We have fast food, fast relations, fast jobs etc. People are used to these rapid changes every day. So music has to be served that way as well. The notes are much simpler and catchier now to harp on. It may not be that ornate with soulful strains, poise and depth but is highly rhythmic and pulsating to the core.
People like it on the move. Music is more of a visual experience now than just lending an ear to. Your take on this. I absolutely agree with this statement. True that music in the present times is first seen and then heard. So it all comes through the vivid videos. It has become more of a visual delight to speak of. And if the song has a good melody and a foottapping beat to dwell on, it becomes a huge hit. So it rarely happens that a song is released without picturisation and today, people like to see and believe those visuals on screen.
You would hardly come across a very good song, which is badly shot and yet, fares well publicly. So, both aspects should march hand in hand. In the past, old songs would be a blockbuster even if the hero and the heroine were seen seated inside a room. But things have drastically changed now. Today, a blockbuster song rides upon a lot of extra elements, required to be chipped in to propel its success.
- Suzi interviews singer Garry Sandhu
Many old school critics despise dance numbers and racy tracks. But your discography shows some runaway hits in these genres. So what do you have to say? Music you know, is a very personal matter. At least, the feeling comes across like that. But music is independent, free of all bounds. However, the irony is that in music, you actually tend to start internalising your favourite song and think it to be your own. You attach a sense of belonging to it.
When it comes to the old school critics, I presume that they have been brought up with a very different kind of music to listen to. What you grow up being catered with, becomes an inbuilt habit or your staple diet for life.
However, the new generation is different; they live life on a fast lane. By that logic, music too follows suit. It ought to be for-the-moment, swift, vibrant with a tempo and prompt on demand. Jan 16, Nobody would guess that men behind the jugalbandi Jogi Singh Barnala that propelled them into the limelight, to the dance anthem 'Baby Doll' and now, 'High Heels', are self-taught musicians.
Hailing from a business family, they smirk that it was not the legendary Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkarbut a bad singer that inspired them to make a career in music. In a no-holds-barred interview with the musician brothers, they talk of superhits, splits and making music in the age of fast food We gave Salman Khan a break: Meet Bros What made you settle on a name like Meet Bros? Artistes like Honey Singh and Badshah got instant recognition.

Did that ever bother you? We are happy that a new genre has been discovered. In fact, with High heels, we have gone into their zone and made a successful song. So we are doing their kind of stuff, but they can't make our kind of music. And that's good for us as it makes us multi-talented and versatile. How challenging is it to work with a newbie as opposed to established artistes?
We use newbies for most of our songs or at least make sure there is one new person in every album. Nobody meets aspiring artistes here.
