95% of singers sing to music already composed by listening to the music called the Track
Track is music without the voice an singer sings to the track listening to the music which is so easy for the singers.
Prana Kishore does the opposite which is very very difficult.
He sings without ANY instruments just his voice and records his voice first meaning he sings first
Then he sits down with the recording engineer and records each instruments one by one from the opening to back ground music 1-2-3.Finally he mixes and masters the song to 7.1 surround sound system
How is he able to do this?
Prana Kishore base is TABLA he learnt this instruments for 3yrs as a child and he is so comfortable singing without ANY instruments since rhythm he feels it while singing.
Prana Kishores ardent follower of his music,his adviser and mentor Sri Bala says
" Listening to all his devotional and non devotional music I came to one conclusion,It's as if all the instruments know Prana Kishore so well like their friend and Prana Kishore also loves all his instruments as much like his friend, this is like Meera Loving Krishna and Krishna loving Meera all in the mind.No wonder Prana Kishore quotes Music is life is Music as he thrives for the nextgen to enjoy his new kind of Prana Music to relieve their stress as they get curious to know more about the music and God"
