“I was persuaded to act in movies and tried virtually every trick to get out of it. I muffed my lines, pretended to be crazy, shaved my hair off, played difficult, began yodelling in the midst of tragic scenes – but they still wouldn’t let me go.” – Interview with Pritish Nandy
This quote sums up Kishore Kumar. Such was his talent and versatility that even when attempting to escape the industry, he only intrigued us all furthermore. The emotions, energy and lyrical content cannot be replicated and even to this day he is known as the yodelling, acting and singing legend. Both his heartfelt slow songs and high energy tracks have captured us.
Where several genres and artists will pass various generations, his music may be sampled and re-recorded but there will never be another Kishore Kumar. To this day, his music sets our dancefloors alive with his countless hits, so it felt only right that we recorded an original tribute mix in his name.
As the words to his famous song goes “Chalte Chalte mera yeh geet yaad rakna kabhi alvida naa kehna…” His music will forever live on. (Kishore Kumar – 1929 – 1987)
