Delhi, Dec 11, 2016: Playback Singer Papon, who has given us some of the most ethereal bollywood- film songs, vouches for non-filmy music as well, believes that non-filmy music struggles to take lead and that it needs a platform to rise up. And this is where music apps and radio channels are important.

According to PTI report, he said, “They’re definitely niche (music apps) but they are also much bigger than what they were five years ago. Non-film music or platforms that push non-film music can only be a part of the mainstream if we have radio stations that play non-film music.

Look for latest news from India in NewsGram.

That’s the only solution. If platforms like that push different styles of music, from different parts of the country, more people will get to hear it. And that’s what we need.”

Papon was recently roped in for Saavn’s ‘Artist-in- Residence Program’, designed exclusively for breakthrough artists.

“The Artist-in-Residence programme is a very positive step, and I’m very excited to be a part of it. This association comes at a great time for me as I have been working on some new ideas that I can’t wait to share with my fans. He also gave a glimpse of his current endeavors, “We’re planning something exciting for my forthcoming EP, The Story Now and Saavn is helping me put it together,” Papon said.
