Musician-producer extraordinaire, Karsh Kale doesn’t need any intro and his music has reached where not many Indian musicians could. Till date, Karsh Kale has seven solo albums, eight EPs and multiple collaborations to his name. Adding another feather to his cap, the visionary composer collaborated with Chinese Pop singer Sa Ding Ding for a song. Karsh has put up the song Empty on Soundcloud today.
He was asked by Universal China to write and produce an album for the Chinese Pop Singer SA Dingding a few years ago. Language became an issue in the first place as he didn’t know how to speak Mandarin (she spoke no English), the project went for a toss. However, after a couple of days of figuring each other out in Beijing, they sat together on the piano and wrote an entire album’s worth of material. The song Empty was one of the first songs they created.
You will find solace as the lyrics and the keys flow effortlessly in this thought-provoking emotional piece.
Written by Sa Ding Ding and Karsh Kale, the song is produced by Karsh himself. He also played the piano, keyboards whereas Naveen Kumar played the flute, Salim Merchant on strings and the track is mixed by Gaurav Raina of MIDIval Punditz.
