Ghazal maestro Hariharan talks exclusively to HindustanTimes.com about his experimentation with different genres of music

Why have you left singing Ghazals and started doing more pop numbers?
I don't think I have left ghazals. I still sing ghazals. As far as my entry in pop music is concerned it's because I never want to stick to one image. I also feel that one should not consider pop music as an inferior form of music.

But for last couple of years you have not produced a single ghazal album. Why?
It's true. I wanted to do something new. I wanted some change which I have got in the form of pop singing.

Why have you not had enough opportunities in Hindi film music?
I should say music directors of Hindi films have not made use of my talent yet.

Is it true that remixing of music is very popular among youngsters? Is it a very healthy trend?
It is true that this form of music is popular among youngsters but I feel that it will have a very bad impact on the quality of music. It's not a healthy trend. Any compromise with the melody of old songs will have a very detrimental impact later on.
