T-Series MD and Chairman Bhushan Kumar, said, “‘MixTape Season 2’ is going to be bigger, better and funkier and a lot more memorable than what you saw in the last season. The 28 singers have put together an energy and vibe that is bound to entertain the modern listener who is constantly looking for something innovative to feed his ears. I think we have a treat on hand for music aficionados.”
The entire season is conceptualized and developed by Shivam Chanana and Sonal Chawla after their success with Season 1 and also “MixTape Punjabi.” The show will continue to be directed by renowned director Ahmed Khan.
Music director for the show, Abhijit Vaghani, who previously put together “MixTape Season 1” and “MixTape Punjabi,” said, “Season 2 promises to be the most melodic season this time with loads of unique instruments where we challenge the boundaries of Indian and Western classical music in a commercial format for our listeners. Mixing various instruments from all over the world and blending them to create something that is nothing short of an epic has been my goal in this season. The overall experience will be magnificent!”
