Members of Sparsh — the Ruhia College band comprising Soham Pathak, Aaditya Barve and Nikhil Pachpande — always knew that their win at Mood Indigo 2011, Asia's largest cultural festival, would open new avenues for their careers. Their intuition came true when the trio were signed as music directors and composers for the recently-released Marathi film Shyamche Vadil.
These days Pathak and Pachpande are busy touring around Maharashtra promoting their first musical pitch. "I am thrilled to work with such veterans of the Marathi film industry. This movie deals a lot with the value systems in a family but we added a new flavour to it with songs that the present generation can relate to," says Pathak, who was in Pune for the film's promotion.
The audition for the film, they say, was a completely new experience for them. "We were asked to write a song about dad, which we did with great difficulty. Though the producers liked our tune, they wanted to change our point of view. After that we had screening sessions and we were asked to compose three songs. We completed the soundtrack for the movie within two and a half months," adds Barve, who usually played along with the college band as a bassist. The film's music, they say, though rooted in traditional tunes, also uses rock music to bring in a hint of modern music.
Soham, who got introduced to rock music in 11th standard, says that currently he is struggling to juggle between college and work. "Fortunately, my friends have been very supportive and have helped me with the notes," adds Soham.
