Talking about his experience, musical genius Lucky Ali said, “It was done very professionally as always, it was a grand show with great lighting sequences and ample space for us to ideate with each other. Many of us had worked for the first time with each other like 3 musicians who had come from Tamara, Egypt, Shivam from Delhi and Dharamsala and also Yash who played on the Sarod. So, that was the experience for me, it was just intense… we practiced till we got the interpretation right, till then we didn’t move on stage. Whatever it is, it’s just a good example of connection between different varied artists, new artists and also my good fortune to have been in that environment.”
Excited to be a part of the show, music maestro Sonu Nigam said, “I belief artform is a reflection of the soul of that particular artiste. Music is an ideal evidence to this belief of mine. Unacademy Unwind with MTV is a show that is a reflection of each artist's individual musicality and philosophy. What I have conceptualised for this show, is unprecedented and unparalleled in my own life. The entire performance seems like a 180-degree spectrum to me, where every item leads to a unique zone of it's own making this one of my most fulfilling experiences of life.”
All set to create magic with her soulful singing, Harshdeep Kaur said, “As a language of the universe, music possesses an exceptional ability to pull our heartstrings with every new masterpiece. Every tune gives an opportunity to create a plethora of recreations, reaffirming the therapeutic force of music. With Unacademy Unwind with MTV and my special collaboration with Rochak Kohli on Folk music, our effort is to display an entire spectrum of range this genre of music has to offer, with the sole purpose of helping viewers unwind from the stressors of daily life.
