Neerad Performs Unreleased Music From Upcoming EP
While we’re super conservative about the word ‘favourite’ so when we say Jai Hind College’s Neerad Sumeet is our favourite pianist from the ATKT fam, we really, really mean it.
On the newest episode of the ATKT Talent Tent Podcast, we hung out with Neerad, who performs two songs – Koi and Kaiko – from his upcoming EP. While we expected him to play his music on his keyboard, we were pleasantly surprised to see him play his music on his iPad—and rap to it. The young musician believes that it’s imperative for a musician to adapt and grow, and P-man—the only other musician in the room—fully agreed.
While he would perform as a student, he has taken up music as a career now that he has graduated. He shares his experiences with his college’s club, Jai Hind Music Cafe, an initiative taken up by his classmates. He worked with the iconic YRF, and he shares his experiences with interning at the studio, and performing as a relatively new musician in the indie circuit.
On previous episodes of the ATKT Talent Tent Podcast, we have featured rapper Siegen and beat-boxer Gaurav to talk about the hip hop scene in colleges, spoken to illustrator/poet Priyanka Paul about side hustles as a young artist, had a chat with Nyla Saldanha about regressive dress codes in colleges, and discussed poetry & mental health on campus with poet Malvika Sharma & Nashwaa Shahrukh, and hung out with Gandhar Shembekar to listen to his new music and his indie vs Bollywood preferences.
You, too, could be featured on the show! If you’re a poet or musician, shoot us an email with your original work at [email protected] and we’ll get back to you STAT.
