Mumbai terror attacks is the thought behind Rabbi Shergill’s new song the concern for the country after Mumbai’s 26/11 attacks,is finding its catharsis through different art forms. While city artists Rajendra Para and Ananya Bannerjee and photographer Pradeep Chandra used their works to express their solidarity,Delhi based musician Rabbi Shergill is working on a song to reflect upon the state of society.

The song,yet untitled, talks about the attacks ,but also addresses larger issues. “The attacks were the catalyst but my song goes beyond that one incident,” said Shergill,refusing to divulge more as “it may prejudice the audience”.

Unlike Shergill’s previous work,this song is sung in Hindi,not Punjabi. But the musician is still playing his own music.

Shergill says he isn’t sure how he will release the song. “The song is nearly ready but I haven’t decided the medium of putting it out. The state of independent music in India has worsened. The traditional media of television and radio seem beyond the reach now,” he explains.

Sadly,he says his song may only be released on the Internet. “But I’m open to options if a label offers to produce a video or release it under its brand,” he says.
