'Soul' of music is dying in modern era - Alka
Jamshedpur, Feb 4 : Noted playback singer Alka Yagnik today said despite singing becoming much easier due to modern technological aids the 'soul' of music was dying.
Talking to newspersons here Alka said, "Everything is rapidly changing but melody is waning from the music. In earlier days, we had to sing many times to complete a song but now a singer can record a song by singing it in bits and pieces with the help of advanced computer based equpment. Still the soul of music is dying. One of the reasons for this can be non making of music based movies nowadays."
Ms Yagnik, who had sung many super hit songs including 'ek do teen' from 'Tezab', said, "Some of the genuine television music shows are proving to be a platform for grooming singing talents at an early age. But due to the advent of fast food culture it was proving difficult for the new lot to maintain their popularity for long. Every six months we find a new singing star."
"Still, I want to nurture young talents as at a tender age it is easy to mould them. I also don't want them to face the hardship of our days when no senior singer was available to teach us a thing or two," She said.
To a query she said increasing obscenity in Indian music was because of increase in indecency in other walks of life.
"But I still hope that the era of melody will return," she said.
