Amazon Prime Music Presents Carvaan Lounge Season 1 Where Retro Gets A Brand New Sound

 Jyothi Venkatesh

Leveraging the rich tapestry of Hindi-retro classics in their library, Saregama is all set to introduce a new music property called ‘Carvaan Lounge’, reinventing the golden age of Indian music in a new modern sound. Presented by Amazon Prime Music, the first season of Carvaan Lounge will be available first for Prime members to enjoy, ad-free and to sing-along with lyrics on Prime Music. Carvaan Lounge in its first season will be showcasing seven evergreen Hindi classics, rearranged and rendered by contemporary musicians and singers.

Carvaan Lounge will witness the musical talent of singers like Neeti Mohan, Papon, Shaan, Nakash Aziz, Jonita Gandhi, Priyanka Negi, Benny Dayal, Ankit Tiwari, Ash king, Nikhita Gandhi, Palak Muchhal, Neha Bhasin and many more, paying tribute to some of the most iconic songs from the retro era. The music has been reimagined by the gifted Arko and Jam 8, who bring their own stamp to the classics, infusing them with a contemporary sound. What also sets these songs apart is the inclusion of ‘Shayari’  – simple Hindi poetry seamlessly interwoven that convey the pathos behind the songs. The ‘Shayari’ has been written by noted lyricist Rashmi Virag and members of Jam 8 and is rendered on screen by  Anupriya Goenka and Himanshu Malhotra – both renowned faces in the film and television space. Spread over seven episodes, the videos are shot in an intimate informal setting and will be released in periodic intervals on Saregama’s  official YouTube channel and the audio will be available first on Amazon Prime Music.

 Sahas Malhotra, Director, Amazon Prime Music, said, “Carvaan Lounge is a fitting tribute to evergreen classics and we could not have found better partners than Saregama for this collaboration.  Retro is a widely popular genre amongst Prime Music listeners and we are happy to bring to them iconic, classic songs recreated by today’s top contemporary singers. Through this collaboration, we will continue to delight retro music fans with performances, available ad-free and exclusively, first on Prime Music.”

Vikrm Mehra, Managing Director, Saregama says, “Carvaan Lounge is our attempt to bring back the magic of retro and make it more accessible to a younger audience. Our library is second to none, and we are keen to present the iconic songs that we have need to an ever-evolving young digital audience, who may not be familiar with this music.  We are especially thrilled that Amazon Prime Music has recognised what we want to do and has come on board as an interested partner. We are sure that this latest introduction will resonate well with our consumers.”

Featuring Neeti Mohan and Papon, and with music recreated by  Arko, the first episode will have the song Ek Pyar Ka Nagma Hai, and is out today – the 27th November on Amazon Prime Music and on the Saregama YouTube channel.

Enjoy Neeti Mohan & Sukh E’s Electrifying Chemistry In The First Episode Of T-Series Mixtape Punjabi Season 2

T-Series MixTape Punjabi Season 2 gets off to an energetic start with Neeti Mohan and Sukh E’s electrifying performance. Presented by Amazon Prime Music and produced by T-Series Chairman and Managing Director Bhushan Kumar, the two-month musical extravaganza will put on display 24 artists who will add a unique twist to the mix of two hugely popular Punjabi songs.

In the first episode, Neeti with her feminine grace and Sukh E with his ‘Punjab da puttar’ attitude will blow you away with their powerful, high voltage rendition of Nikle Currant and Wah Wai Wahh. The livewire performers have left no stone unturned to ensure that they do justice to the inaugural episode of  T-Series MixTape Punjabi Season 2, available first on Amazon Prime Music

Sukh E

The first episode serves as an embodiment of the razzmatazz that you are going to witness in the next 10 episodes. Radhika and Vinay Sapru, the series directors offer, “This episode captures what we had set out to do with T-Series MixTape Punjabi Season 2. It truly depicts the energy, the play of sound and light and the complete extravaganza with the artists. You can see the crowd enjoying the whole rendition and whatever the artists expresses. It truly comes out in the first episode.”

Sukh E, Neeti Mohan

Says Neeti, “I have been part of MixTape for the last two seasons but that was in Hindi. This time I wanted to be an integral part of T-Series MixTape Punjabi Season 2. I am singing and performing in Punjabi for the first time for MixTape and I am so excited about it. I loved performing both the tracks and singing them with Sukh E was such a memorable experience.  I think Punjabi music is becoming my favourite genre already.”

Neeti Mohan

Sukh E informs, “Nikle Currant, although sung by Jassie Gill, was a song I was associated with as a music producer. Wah Wai Wahh was a song that I had sung with Neha Kakkar a few months ago. So when I got this opportunity to be part of these two songs for T-Series MixTape Punjabi Season 2, I was determined ‘yeh to mujhe karna hi karna hai’. I was getting to show my skills as a live performer and I was very excited to be part of it.”

Laughing at the memory, Sukh E adds, “After, the first take, they found it difficult to see me jumping around and dancing so much. I was asked to go easy on the dancing bit. So, I had to control myself and I have never controlled myself while performing but, for a change, it was nice.”

Sukh E, Neeti Mohan

Neeti and Sukh E’s high-energy, juxtaposition of the two songs will instinctively set you grooving. Adds,  Radhika and Vinay, “Each and every instrument whether it be the tumbi, guitar, dhol or the synth comes out so clear and correct in this episode that it truly is a great beginning to a great season that we are looking forward to and hoping that we hit it big at the word go.”

Deepika Padukone’s Ex-Flame Nihar Pandya To Marry Singer Neeti Mohan On Valentine’s Day

Jyothi Venkatesh

The wedding season is still going on in the B-town. After the biggest stars like Sonam Kapoor and Anushka Sharma earlier and Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Kapil Sharma etc tied the knot in 2018, it looks like 2019 will also see a lot of weddings and one of the many couples to take the nuptial vows are model-actor Nihar Pandya and singer Neeti Mohan. Yes. At long last, Deepika Padukone’s former boyfriend Nihar Pandya is all set to tie the knot with singer Neeti Mohan on February 14. A few years ago, Nihar hogged the limelight due to his relationship with Deepika Padukone. In the upcoming episode of The Kapil Sharma Show, Nihar and his girlfriend Neeti are all set to appear as guests. The couple has confirmed to Zoom TV that they are scheduled to get married on Valentine’s Day, February 14 in the presence of family and friends. During the The Kapil Sharma show, Nihar also reveals that he was in love with Neeti even before their first meeting. “A friend of mine was a member of Aasma, the band that Neeti was a part of at the beginning of her career. I asked him several times to introduce us but that never happened. Coincidentally, I met her in Goa at the same friend’s wedding almost a year ago, and that’s when our love story started,” he informs. I remember having met both Deepika Padukone and Nihar Pandya way back in 2006 in London at Himesh Reshammiya’s grand live concert at the Wembley Plaza hotel where Himeshbhai had launched the music of his film Aap Ka Suroor in grand style. We at bollyy.com wish Neeti and Nihar a happy married life.

“It Was My Dream Come True To Sing For Sanjay Leela Bhansali,” Says Neeti Mohan On The Kapil Sharma Show

Jyothi Venkatesh

Well-known playback singer Neeti Mohan will be seen on The Kapil Sharma Show this Sunday where she will be seen sharing various experiences of her initial days. The super talented singer has seen her share of struggles and through sheer dedication and hard work she has reached where she has and left a mark in Bollywood playback singing.

Neeti Mohan recalls the moment when she had gone for her first audition. “There were thousands of people who had gathered for the audition of Channel [v]’s Popstars show in Delhi. Looking at the crowd, I got so nervous and demotivated, that I returned home. My father, was up all night watching the Britney Spears’s Live concert. At 4 am, he just woke me up and took me to the auditions. From being a contestant, then a winner, to a judge and now to a playback singer, I never looked back.”

When she entered the world of playback singing, it was her dream to sing for ace-director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and her dream came true when she got an opportunity to sing the melodious song “Nainovale Ne”  from the movie ‘Padmavat’. Another memorable experience was when Neeti was recording ‘Jiya Re’ from the movie ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. She had to record the song in front of the music maestro AR Rehman, Yash Chopra & Gulzar. Neeti said, “I was so overwhelmed to record in front of three legends that I was not able to sing and it took me a lot of effort to finally be able to record the song.” She thanks her destiny for giving her the opportunity to sing for such stalwarts.

Watch “The Kapil Sharma Show” every Saturday and Sunday at 9:30 pm only on Sony TV

Bhushan Kumar Releases T-Series Artist Neeti Mohan’s New Single Kithe Reh Gaya Celebrating Love

It’s been a year of high profile weddings and the wedding season ain’t over yet. Coming close on the heels is singer and T-Series artist Neeti Mohan’s new single titled Kithe Reh Gaya, which released today.

Though Kithe Reh Gaya is a video about an engagement ceremony, it packs in all the energy, vibe and vibrant colours of a traditional Indian wedding with extended family joining in the merry-making and the celebration. And why not?  Kithe Reh Gaya is about a ring ceremony waiting to happen in the luxurious Neemrana Hotel in Patiala. Hmm… but what is a love story without a few hiccups?

In Kithe Reh Gaya, the dashing groom accompanied by his friend is on the way to the engagement venue.  On reaching the venue, they realize that instead of reaching Neemrana Hotel in Patiala, they have reached Neemrana Hotel in Jaipur.

At the other end, the ebullient girl, played by Neeti is waiting for her to-be fiancé and is visibly  worried that it’s time to exchange rings but the man of the moment has still not arrived.  The video records the journey of the groom who surmounts various difficulties to reach his to-be bride. Some of it makes for quirky viewing.

Neeti Mohan breaks away from the tradition of a coy bride, lends a zestful quality to the vocal rendition of Kithe Reh Gaya and effuses it with an irreverent spirit, characteristic of a modern day woman.  She says, “Kithe Reh Gaya, my brand new single is full of new beginnings… it’s a song for every girl who’s in love. It’s a song of celebration with the family. I believe Kithe Reh Gaya is the song for every bride and bridesmaid. Super excited to showcase the video shot in Patiala to everyone.” Neeti shares some additional trivia. She points out, “The interesting thing is that we shot this song when it was six degrees in Patiala where I had to be in a lehenga-choli. That was coolness to the next level.”

Producer Bhushan Kumar adds, “Kithe Reh Gaya is a very refreshing dance number and will make you take a liking to it instantly. The beat is catchy and has been sung beautifully by Neeti. I am sure it will be one song that will make a mark among the non-film category.”
