Musician-Singer Hariharan On The Corona Song




Ghazal and popular singer  Hariharan has always been a notch above the  run-of-the-mill  populist singers. His latest endeavour is a  song titled  Chappa chappa afwaah chale The  Lockdown  Track’ against the  spread  rumours  regarding the  Corona virus.

Speaking to me Hariharan  says, “We are a group of friends musicians ,chefs,actor , and pr experts. Calling  ourselves  the  Sur-viralists .Rumours have become such a dangerous habit with people ,anything disturbing they share it and also add in their thoughts and fantasies to it .Simple people get influenced by such rumours and go into depression . Or become aggressive in their thoughts.Hence we can voice  our concern on   the idea if fighting this issue and hence we created the song .”

The  Sur-viralists  besides Hariharan, comprise singing couple Roop and Shunali Rathod, Hariharan’s sons Akshay and Karan, chef Sanjeev Kapoor  and  others. Their anti-rumour lockdown song Chappa  chappa afwaah chale gets  its  referential  inspiration  from the song Chappa chappa charkha chale from Gulzar’s film Maachis  which Hariharan had  sung with Suresh Wadkar for composer  Vishal Bhardwaj.

It is  one of  Hariharan’s most popular songs.

Says  the  baritone singer, “Music is a healer.It has always been but with our world going bonkers its presence is vital as it is communicative,entertaining,spiritual ,one is at peace when one listens to music.In short music  makes you a better human being.”
