You can watch Adnan Sami recording ‘live’ on January 21 at Yashraj Studio from 6 pm IST. And he’s open to suggestions so, you could tell him how to croon a lineor tweak the tune.
“A lot of people around the world have been asking me about how I create a song, the atmosphere in the recording studio and the works. I thought this would be a great way to bring them into the creative process. So I collaborated with Facebook and YouTube on a first-of-its-kind initiative in India,” explains the singer-composer-lyricist.
Over 60,000 people across the world have signed up on Facebook (
) and YouTube.com in the first three days to be part of this path-breaking ‘interactive’ music session that will be streamed live online on Friday.
“I’ll be on the microphone but there’ll be a laptop next to me. And I’ll react to all the ‘chats’ through my singing. I don’t want my audience to be silent spectators because eventually this song is for them,” he says.
He’s hoping to wrap up his album by the month end and have it on the shelves by April-May. It will be brought out by Yashraj Music. The song that will be recorded is the title track,
Main tere paas hoon
“No brownie points for guessing who the muse is,” laughs Sami, obviously referring to his wife, Roya Faryabi.
