Watch: Midival Punditz release a new single, Rootha Yaar
The pioneers of Indian electronica, Midival Punditz, are back with a new single. Titled Rootha Yaar, the single is based on the writings of Baba Bulle Shah and features Kolkata-based, Sukanya Chattopadhyayo. The duo — namely Gaurav Raina and Tapan Raj — will be releasing two more songs this year.
Rootha Yaar was originally written as part of the music done for the popular web series on Amazon Prime Made In Heaven, by Gaurav Raina and Tarana Marwah (Komorebi). The new version is the Punditz rendition of the same song, featuring a heavy dance floor groove and analogue synths.
Each of these three new songs have a unique sound, borrowing from different styles of Indian folk and Sufi music, and finally mixed with a distinct Punditz 2019 touch. Remixes of each of the singles by an amazing set of artistes from across the world, such as Gaudi, Blot!, Komorebi and Curtain Blue will follow each release.
Earlier this year, as the Gully Boy soundtrack made waves across the country and Punditz’s contribution to the much-talked about film’s soundtrack - Train Song stood out.
