For the love of indies


This playlist is a remembrance of past.
That brief but brilliant period when the independent pop artists were ruling the charts.
It soon disappeared, but like many, I still cherish this lost generation of artists.

It's a shame how the Desi Indie music scene has become nearly non-existent, the likes of Shaan, Mohit Chauhan are now very much a part of the mainstream Hindi film music industry these days. I was reading an interview by Ram Sampat, he mentioned that the big music labels are responsible for killing the 90's budding indie music scene.

@sam77 I think it did evolve but not quite in the direction one hoped for, hence my nostalgia. There is a reemergence of independent labels, which was, of course, bound to happen, as Bollywood hardly caters to avant-garde talent, it believes in banking on the already bankable. My fear is it will happen again, all in the name of evolution and growth, and leave behind yet another nostalgic playlist ! After all obscurity would be an artists' worst nightmare. This period did give a platform to some the prominent names of today, sadly the doors were shut behind them.
