What inspires you to make music?

Harshal Bhatt: “All I can say about music is that, whenever anyone listens to the tune that I have composed and if it corresponds to the same emotions regardless of listeners’ age, then it is called Music. Another important thing in my opinion is Lyrics. If you were able to find the right emotion, proper words and tune which can take these two diamonds and make a beautiful necklace then everyone would like to wear it all the time. It is not something that you think about or can plan. It’s just there.”

Hemen Bhatt: “Making music is a completely emotion-driven process. It is something that comes from a very deep place within. The music that I have made and sung has always been inspired by my own experiences in life, the people I have met, the places I have been to, my own personal feelings, and the world around me.”

These are the songs that the Bhatt brothers say changed their lives and musical journey forever. Harshal Bhatt: “My favourite song is “Ye chaand sa roshan chehra” by late Mr. Mohammed Rafi Saab and “Lag ja gale” by late Ms. Lata Mangeshkar. These songs were the first melodies that I have ever heard. My father was listening to it, and I was completely amazed by the sound and vibe. I also enjoyed the lyrics and felt that it was a song that everyone could relate to. I was about 10 years old at that time.” Hemen Bhatt: “My favourites keep changing but one song which made my interest in music was “Kajra re” from “Bunty Aur Babli”. This song made me want to start singing and dancing. Another song that moved my interest in Rap and hip hop was when I heard “Duma Dum mast kalandar” by Baba Sehgal and Alka Yagnik.”
