Shibani Kashyap and Mika Singh have paired up together for the first time for a Punjabi track, ‘Soneya’, a Times Music release. The song is folk with an international music to it. Traditional instruments will not be used.
She says, “I have known Mika for over 15 years and we have always wanted to do a song together. But we found time only now. Also, despite being a Punjabi, I have never sung a song in that language and I wanted to do it. Doing a Hindi track with Mika would have been very predictable. The video is very bright, uptempo and features us in stylish avatars.”
This is one of the songs in the Indipop album Shibani has worked on. “I will keep releasing the songs one by one. I feel Indipop has immense potential and is going to be back in a big way,” she concludes.
