Shashaa Tirupati: I happily live my passion for music

Singer-songwriter Shashaa Tirupati is delighted to be back on stage after a long lull.

“I missed performing live for my fans. It was the longest wait, but finally I’m back and doing what I love the most: performing on stage. Hope Covid doesn’t spoil things more. I happily live my passion for music, “says the singer of Rait Zara Si from Arangi Re.

With his two new songs Hum the seed, saade and Hum rang hain the cinema Badhaai Do is fine, Tirupati is busy wrapping up her projects and wants to focus more on independent music and concerts.

“Over the past couple of years, the indie music scenario has completely transformed and the pandemic period has kind of catalyzed it in a big way. It has given way to a lot of indie artists. it really is the best phase for this genre and the musicians are happily enjoying it. But, sometimes, I wonder if this phase is fading with the film score getting back on track. We keep our fingers crossed and give everything to ensure that the independent music scene continues to thrive in the days to come as well.”

The national award-winning singer, who was in Varanasi recently, feels it’s time to give back to her gurus in any way possible.

“It wasn’t just for my shows that I flew to UP, there was more to it. The reason that brought me back to Varanasi was to tour for a song written and composed by Guru Pandit Ramashray Jha ‘Ramrang’ who happens to be the master trainer of my guru maa Kamla Bose. The song Rank Jin Daaro was sung and produced by me. We shot it on the ghats and it was such a divine feeling to be back in the holy city and meet great masters of music. I can never repay what they taught me. By coming back here and being with them, I’m relearning and refining the naïve musician in me, once again.
