A new soundtrack for this season of student dissent, courtesy Kanhaiya Kumar’s speech
New Delhi: With allegations of doctored videos of Kanhaiya Kumar’s ‘Azaadi’ speech being played to frenzy mob violence and the resignation of media personalities questioning media ethics, the slogans raised during the JNU protest has received its fair share of fame.
A new remix, however, just dropped by producer Dub Sharma, lays the crucial portion of Kumar’s speech over a tight beat, creating what could be the soundtrack of this season of student dissent.
Dub Sharma is a composer and producer living in Chandigarh. He clearly reaffirms his neutral stand on ideologies.
“I just connect with the chants. Technical freedom and true freedom are two different things, and I feel these chants point towards true freedom – especially the part of the chants on the track. So I just amplified it with music,” said Dub Sharma
