Raahul Jatin comes up with his third single Yaadein Aane Lagi

Raahul Jatin, the multifaceted musical talent has come up with his third single Yaadein Aane Lagi, a ballad sung and composed by him while the lyrics are penned by his father, legendary music director, Jatin Pandit. The melodious romantic number features Raahul and the music production is done by Aditya Dev and Raahul.

US-based actress and model Madison Trunnell features in the song as Raahul’s love interest. The couple is seen romancing in the lush green countryside, a vintage scenic house& beautiful locales in California. The music video was entirely shot in the US with a very limited crew size and following all protocols and guidelines pertaining to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Speaking about song, Raahul said, “It is a romantic number which I feel would appeal to the youth. Has a very cool vibe. I actually intended to compose another upbeat number but with the general state of affairs, I believe there is melancholy in the air. The world has slowed down and there is uncertainty. I started with high octane notes, but I ditched it altogether because it just did not feel right and I ended up composing a ballad. I got my parents to hear a scratch version of it, my father was very gracious to work on the lyrics and we promptly recorded it”. We recorded it in Mumbai during the lockdown. Then when I came to US during the later half of the pandemic, my producer Dr. Sandhu heard the song, and we decided to shoot it.

Talking about the shoot Raahul said, “This is my first video shot outside India. I was a bit apprehensive initially, especially with the ongoing pandemic. However, it all worked out smoothly. We worked with a limited crew and wrapped up the shoot in a record time frame, given the number of locations we covered. We did not even include hairstylist and make-up artist in the crew to keep the head count as minimum as possible. We were all tested prior to the shoot. It was a fun shoot, we were all in-sync and energized& therefore it was a very fulfilling experience. I met Madison for the 1st time but it didn’t feel like that. She is so pretty, congenial& easy to work with despite not understanding Hindi. My Director Harper has done an amazing job. He was operating the camera, lighting and the drone single handedly. He was like a One Man Army. Shooting this single was a memorable experience that I will always cherish and remember.

The 3.30-minute-long romantic number was shot across San Francisco, Jamestown, Copperopolis, Bay Area and Sonora all flat in one day with a limited crew size of four people including the actors. It will be released by Funk Box in Association with Jatin Pandit.

Speaking about the lyrics, ace music director Jatin Pandit said, “The idea of music has really changed with Raahul’s generation, so I was very surprised when I heard the tune in its raw form. In a strange way it took me back to Pehla Nasha so I offered to help with the lyrics. The concept, melody and even the idea of a slow soft tune is all Raahul’s. I was tempted to meddle with the music a bit, but I refrained because an original composition is always the best”.

Raahul made his musical debut with “Aankhon Ke Ishaare” released by Zee Music and followed it up with a somber and, soulful prayer song “Prabhu Hum Ko Kshama Kar” alongside his father at the outset of Covid-19 pandemic in India.

Raahul Jatin makes his debut with a melodious single- Aankhon Ke Ishaare

Veteran Music composer, Jatin Pandit’s (Jatin- Latin) son Raahul Jatin marks his debut in the music industry with a groovy yet melodious single ‘Aankhon Ke Ishaare’. Composed and sung by Raahul Jatin, Aankhon ke Ishaare gets you to tap your feet instantaneously while the sublime melody of Raahul’s voice rings in your ears even when the song is over.

The freshly brewed number is padded up with a refreshing video featuring Raahul and Simone in an intimate dance choreographed by Shazia and Piyush. The vivacious energy and grace which the young performers bring on screen are a visual treat. The song is beautifully penned by Kumaar, mixed & mastered by Eric Pillai and the groovy music composed and sung by Raahul will make you hit the replay button.

Raahul has been training in classical music under his father’s (Jatin Pandit) strict tutelage from a tender age of 5 and credits his sound foundation to him. Apart from training in music he has taken up formal training in Bollywood freestyle dance from Shiamak Davar and acting from Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in Los Angeles.

He views himself as a performer. While music remains the spinal cord of his offerings he aspires to bring much more to the table. Talking about his debut Raahul Jatin said, “The melody took about 4 days to compose and after that I roped in few of my American friends who are music producers and we punched in the groove. The video was a true learning experience, we shot it whole in one day. Tiring but genuinely exciting. I have done back flips, and cart wheel in the song. Digital music is just not listening to a song- its seeing as well. You have to be more than just a singer for the audience to connect with you. The song is also very different from the trending ones”.

Talking about his son’s debut veteran Music Composer, Jatin Pandit stated, “Raahul has been a very dedicated pupil from childhood. We never pushed him to take up music. It came to him as a calling. Once he decided, we ensured he observed discipline to cultivate a good voice quality. In this generation, music is served with a lot of frills but if a singer’s voice quality is compromised then the very foundation becomes weak. I was careful that Raahul should not get swayed by the distraction of glamour. The rest is totally his doing. There is a lot of competition out there and it is a tough profession that he has chosen. His talent and dedication will determine his future from here on”.

Raahul’s smooth & soulful vocals allow him to blend into different genres of music – from light classical to western music, from Bollywood songs to Pop music. He plays the piano and guitar, as well as produces the music for all his compositions. His training in dance, acting & fitness (Taekwondo and Gymnastics) makes him adept as a wholesome performer. Raahul’s stage presence in live shows is worth a watch.

Aankhon Ke Ishaare is presented by Zee Music Company, the song releases on the 18th of April 2019.
