Remo FernandesIndi pop has lost its charm: Remo

One of India's most versatile singers and pop musicians, Remo Fernandes is not at all excited about the current pop scene in India.

In a market that is dominated by remixes and fast rhythmic beats, Remo rues that no singer is breaking new ground.




"There was a time on the Indian pop scene when I came out with "Oh Meri Munni", there was "Dooba Dooba" by Silk Route and of course there was Indian Ocean, Lucky Ali and the Colonial Cousins, but frankly I miss the kind of music and charm that was generated then", says Remo, but he is also quick to add that he is not belittling the current singers entirely, "It is just that the current scene doesn't excite me", adds Remo.

His latest Indi single, "Love on SMS" whose video is all set to hit the music channel screens may just pep up the Indi pop scene. Remo is keeping his fingers crossed.

It was way back in 1984 that Remo brought forth English Pop as one of the genres on the Indian music scene at a time when there was hardly anybody releasing English albums, and the fans who were following the western pop were compelled to notice this unique musician from Goa belting out hit after hit.

Ask him about drawing inspiration from the Hindi film music and he says that he came in touch with it when he came to Bombay to study architecture at the J. J. School. He was not very impressed by the music that was being dished out then. According to him, most of the music was lifted from the western hits and they were done very badly.
