The Kashmir Radar: When it comes to power-packed energy and enthusiasm, no one does it better than kashmiri young boys who have been craving for a platform since a very long time.
Ayaan, a 7th grader from South Kashmir’s Anantnag district is making waves on social media for his recreation of soulful and mystic song – Bedard Dadi Chaaney.
A great find by RJ Umar Nisar, Ayaan first featured on Umar’s ‘Mashq Talks’ – a podcast which won various awards for Umar.
“Ayaan always wanted to sing on a bigger platform and taking advantage of that spark in him, I along with Faheem Abdullah– the brain behind “Jehlum Roya” started mentoring Ayaan for the ‘Bedard’ and I think we have been successful in taking out what was buried inside the vocals of Ayaan.” Said RJ Umar Nisar While Talking to The Kashmir Radar.
Ayaan’s BeDard had garnered more than 8 Lakh views on YouTube when this story was filed.
From ringtones to background music in reels, Ayaan’s heart piercing voice received an honest standing ovation from the viewers.
“Before we started working on the project, I along with my team spent more than two weeks in a house boat in the famous Dal Lake, just to get an overview of the plot we were supposed to work upon. I wanted it to be the best, I invested my time and thankfully the results were tremendous.” Said Umar.
With Arif Mir’s music and Direction by RJ Umar, this beautiful song Laden with a golden coat of sufism has an upbeat rap in the ending performed by Najmu Saqib.
Ayaan – a student of Euro Presentation School in Anantnag was very much excited while talking to our correspondent. Not only a good singer, Ayaan is a good orator too, well versed in English language, he wishes to sing more on much bigger platforms.
