Following a recording deal between Sony Music India and Kalamkaar, a record label founded by desi rap star Raftaar and business partner Ankit Khanna, the former released a brand new single on their Youtube channel called ‘Saath‘ sung by 22 year old artist Yunan and co-composed by Deep Kalsi.
Teasing the idea behind the song prior to its release, Yunan was posting pictures of moments he is grateful for with the caption #saath. An old picture of him with Raftaar can be seen in this collection (here).
The video has a retro feel with a twist of modern day dancing. Choreographer Dhiraj Soni has undoubtedly utilized Yunan’s dancing capabilities by choreographing a routine which fits the groovy vibe of the song. Moreover, the peppy beat supports the message of celebrating life despite the trying times.
Elaborating on the meaning of the song, the 22 year old singer states:
“The lock down has forced couples, friends and family to stay apart, and there are fewer chances to celebrate – but life goes on and we have no choice but to get innovative to express our feelings of joy and love. Let “Saath” be an open declaration of happiness and love !!! (that can’t be stopped by even a pandemic) !”
In conversation with Deep Kalsi on an Instagram live session, Yunan mentioned multiple collaboration possibilities but kept it fairly vague.
