This tour will finally end in Bangalore. Eminent personalities in this edition will focus on the code of perfecting music.


Speaking at the event, Javed Akhtar said “Music has been undergoing much change as fashion has. I will not say that the music in our time was good and now it is not so good. But the fact is good songs are being made now too. Many lyricists are writing such good songs. The fact is now people just want songs which they can play at the discos. Hence having good lyrics also does not matter then. The noise is something which I dislike about the modern songs”.

The veteran lyricist who was also positive that demonetization will lead to positive efforts in the long run. He also added that this will not affect this event organized by Royal Stag.


Shankar Mahadevan said “When I compose music, I am not only looking at the old songs but also at the Western songs too. That contributes to wholesome ideas. If you remain confined to one style, then you will not get the chance to experiment. Hence I listen to good rap songs too. These songs have musical depth. I listen to everything and then channelize them in my songs”.

The event was interactive and kept the audiences hooked at The Saturday Club premises.
