Singer Benny Dayal, whose two songs, Hey Mr DJ — Let’s go Bananas and Shudh Desi Romance, have been in the top ten hits for more than a couple of weeks now, feels that the current Indian music scene is going back and forth in time.
“A lot of new talent is coming up these days and everyone
has a very unique sound. It’s an exciting time right now, we are moving in time to create music”, says Benny.
“Even international musicians are looking at India. You recently saw Selena Gomez using a lot of Bollywoodish elements in her song,” he adds. Benny, who will be seen in MTV Unplugged, also talked about the international set up of the show.
“I think it’s a brilliant concept. I have seen artists like Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Billy Joel and so many others performing at this stage. I just couldn’t be more excited to perform at this platform,” he says.
