‘Aazadi Bachpan’ is a song by Mumbai based musician Vikas Shirsat. The song is a protest poetry. The protest is against child labour. It’s a demand for the freedom of their innocence, their right to education, healthcare and well being. Every child should have these fundamental and quite frankly basic human rights from political, civil, social, economic to cultural right.
Which is why it seemed appropriate for Vikas to release the track on Independence day.
The genre is an experimental mix of country, folk, freestyle and some bits of pop sub genres like pop-rock, indie-pop.
Using music to awaken, change and enlighten has always been my goal, and ‘Azadi Bachpan’ is my first humble attempt at doing the same. I am looking forward to making more such meaningful music says Mumbai based Musician Vikas Shirsat.
