For the Season four finale Nucleya and Shruti Pathak travel to the land of the beautiful blue waters, Phuket, Thailand to find a tune for the words of our Poet Dewarist Waris Shah.
Shruti Pathak, is a playback singer and lyricist from Bollywood. She is best known as the voice behind songs like ‘Mar Jawaan’ (Fashion), ‘Subharambh’ (Kai Po Che), She has been on tours all over the country promoting her band ‘Guzzler’ and has taken one step ahead as she launched ‘Guzzler’ as a radio show.
Nucleya redefines Indian electronica by creating a fusion of complex cut up edits and unheard Indian sounds, with cutting edge production and genre-defying rhythms.
While they explore the islands, Nucleya comes up with a basic melody and they work further on the track. He takes the help of his producer friend, Dub Sharma to write some lyrics inspired by Heer. Nucleya also meets a group of local Thai folk musicians who perform local folk songs that have been sung through years and have been passed on from one generation to another, while also trying his hand at playing a local Thai instrument, Ranad.
The dewarists discuss the poems of Waris Shah also popularly known as William Shakespeare of India for his most famous work Heer Ranjha. Waris Shah’s words gave the poem much more meaning than just a love story; it is also about a man’s search for, and tenuous relationship with, his creator. They both feel that love being such a universal language would work great as the theme for the song and the poem would do justice to it.
