Coke Studio opens with Clinton Cerejo



Mumbai, July 5 (IBNS) The first episode of Coke Studio@MTV Season 2 will see music producer Clinton Cerejo and his set of musicians embark on a musical journey.

The lineup will see a mix of acclaimed and upcoming folk singers like Vishal Dadlani, Sonu Kakkar, Nandini and Saawan Khan come together to dole out original compositions which will keep the audiences glued to their television sets.

Vishal Dadlani and Sonu Kakkar will perform on the song 'Madaari' which has folk notations along with subtle modern music undertones.

The highlight of the episode, to be aired on July 7, is the jam session between Clinton and Saawan Khan on the song 'Saathi Salaam'.The song will have folk music seamlessly integrate with Clinton's modern version of the same lyrics.

Some interesting anecdotes from the sets on episode 1 :

Clinton Cerejo's lucky day !

It was his birthday during the shoot and the crew surprised him with a cake. Hitesh Sonik was also present while he cut the cake. Clinton started the shoot with gospel music, as he wanted to have a gospel choir called the Salvation Singers be a part of the composition. And he also included a plasm from the bible, plasm 61, which is his favorite verse from the bible. These inclusions were made on the same day of the shoot, the choir was called the same day and with very little rehearsal they went on stage and performed.

Sawan Khan - guess how was he discovered ?

Clinton spotted him on Youtube, after hearing him sing for the 1st time, Clinton wanted him in his episode immediately. Sawan hails from a remote village in Rajasthan (Gajvoaki Basri),the place offers meager means of access, but his voice persuaded Clinton to reach out to him, even thought after taking a flight, to travelling in a bus to a herculean camel back ride eventually, his voice triumphed all barriers.

All it takes is a Lamb meal to get the song right ( pun intended ) !

As Sawan Khan was not used to studio recordings and singing with multiple instruments and bands, it took him multiple takes and a lot of patience by the crew to get the song right so the team finally took a lunch break. Somehow food being the fodder to a hungry soul did its trick, post a sumptuous lamb meal Sawan and the team sang the song in one take and everyone on the sets gave them a standing ovation.

Madari the monkey man

Manoj writes lyrics for Clinton, he wrote the Hindi part in Saathi Salam .He also wrote Banjara ,Madari ,Mauje Naina and Chaddh De. As Clinton does not understand Hindi he interpreted "Madari" as "Monkey Man" where as it has a deeper meaning referring to the connection with god.

Jake Charky- Cello player from Canada
