From Think about Dragons to Rema to Backstreet Boys to Put up Malone, the 12 months is popping out to be an ideal one for music lovers with world stars making a pit cease within the nation, and plugging of their music. And singer Armaan Malik feels it’s a reflection of individuals accepting that India is a big market to discover.
In reality, he feels the stay music scene has made a comeback in India in a stronger avatar after the pandemic, revealing he has had the busiest present calendar in the previous couple of months.
“It’s been the busiest show calendar for me for the past few months, I’ve never done so many shows back-to-back. I’m really glad that the scene has opened up so much that there are so many events and so many shows happening across the country. And so many more headline tours are happening, which is something an artist really looks forward to,” Malik tells us.
The 27-year-old continues, “I did my debut India tour last year. And being in the scene for almost 14-15 years, you would have thought I would have done at least four or five India tours by now but my first one was last year. And that shows how much the Indian scene was slacking behind and now in the last few years has caught up and becomes such an explosive industry”.
Right here, Malik, recognized for singing in Bengali, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil, Gujarati, Malayalam and Kannada, picks the surge in worldwide acts in India for example.
“Firstly, not only for Indian artists only, but also for international acts who have come here in the last three or four years and made their presence felt for the fans here. We’ve seen the likes of Ed Sheeran; we’ve seen the likes of Justin Bieber (who was scheduled to come) and Post Malone. This shows how big the market of India has become. And while that is happening, homegrown artists like us are also getting,” he says.
“Backing in stadiums, backing in arenas and never simply doing membership exhibits, not simply doing faculty exhibits, or the standard non-public marriage ceremony gigs that everybody does in our nation. The truth that a fan is paying a certain quantity to purchase a ticket to go to their favorite Indian artists present.
That has occurred within the final three years and I couldn’t be prouder of the Indian music scene,” added the singer, who lately carried out a stay present in Dehradun.
Opening up about the necessity to carry out in smaller cities, he says, “I think smaller cities have even more love than the major cities. Considering not a lot of concerts happen in these cities. The fans here are craving for their favourite music artists, waiting to listen to them live”.
“I never performed a concert in Dehradun before… The excitement of seeing something for the very first time, that’s something no one can ever describe,” he ends.
