The love for Producer-Composer QARAN’s hit track continues – this time with a refreshing acoustic version of ‘Haaye Oye’. Featuring the immensely versatile Jonita Gandhi, 'Haaye Oye [Acoustic]' is a creation that explores the duality of emotions, and demonstrates how the same words, said in a different way can have a different meaning.
Topping all charts with over 27+MN views and over 100 +dance covers “Haaye Oye” has become the dance track of India. And giving music aficionados another reason to listen to the song, Sony Music has released an Acoustic video of the song in the versatile voice of Jonita Gandhi.
Says Jonita, “The song has a vibe that gets you hooked instantly. When QARAN approached me to feature on his acoustic version, I was totally on board. Check out our take on Haaye Oye, it’s out now across all streaming platforms.”
"It’s been a year since I released 'Tareefan Reprise' and I felt like it was finally time to create another acoustic version of one of my songs. With all the love that 'Haaye Oye' has been receiving, naturally it felt like the right choice. Haaye Oye [Acoustic] explores the duality of emotions and demonstrates how the same words said in a different way can have a different meaning" , says QARAN
Adds on Rohan Jha, Head - Pop Repertoire, Sony Music India, “Haaye oye surprised us, the way music listeners adapted and started owning the song is phenomenal. We yet see dance covers, singing covers and even tabla covers of the song and we are humbled. When we first heard the song and fell in love with it, it was an acoustic version – and we always wanted to share that with the world. Thank you, Jonita for being a part of the Haaye Oye phenomenon. You sound amazing!”

Those of you who have been around from the 1960's through the 1990's will remember the vibrant live music scene in almost every starred hotel in India. Those were the days when you walked into a nightclub like 'Rendezvous' at The Taj Mahal hotel and 'Supper Club' at the Oberoi Sheraton in Mumbai to see curtains going up on a band that was the prime focus of these outlets. Every seat in these restaurants allowed an unobstructed view of the band that performed every night on resident contracts. Today all this has disappeared thanks to some ridiculously high entertainment taxes on live music. Today, non off these hotels have complete bands playing save for a few that feature small duos or solo singers. The Lodhi in New Delhi, recently listed among the world's best hotels, decided to step in and rewind to the good old days. They got Goa's premier jazz quartet 'Jazz Junction' to move to Delhi on a resident contract and the decision has paid off in terms of footfalls generated by the band. Jazz Junction featuring singer Daniella Rodrigues, pianist Tony Dias,
bassist Colin D'Cruz and drummer Angelo Colasco began playing at The Lodhi in June 2018. Four months into the contract the band generated a sizeable following, with quite a few high profile guests choosing to celebrate their special occasion at the Elan bar where the band performs. Against all odds the rewind option proved to be a huge success and hopefully other properties around the country takes the cue to trigger a whole new revival of live music.
