When I first heard Zeshan’s music it was on a recording with his band, Zamin. I was blown away be the power of his voice, but also the beauty of the melodies he creates. When he joined us in the studio I couldn’t believe how he was able to deliver the same musical experience in person with just his voice and a harmonium. It was a pleasure to talk with Zeshan about developing both is voice (training for years to perform opera) and his songwriting sensibilities (blending the classical Indian traditions with pop music elements). We also discuss his musical upbringing and the use of different languages in his music. For this episode, Zeshan sings in English, Punjabi, and Urdu. He performs “Day of Days,” “Ki Jaana Mein Kaun,” and “Step Aside.”
