Music for me means the freedom to express: Papon

New Delhi: Music personality Papon today stated that for him music is the freedom to express and further stated that emergence of social media has helped in acceptance of music of all genres.

“Music for me means the freedom to express. I’m happy to be here in Indian music at this time. We are boldly embracing different genres and styles and formats in music today. And the most important thing is indie music and alternate genres are no longer considered niche,” Papon said in a statement.

“Thanks to social media, we have come about to accept, savour and appreciate different forms of music today. For an artiste like me, this is exciting, as I am able to boundlessly explore across genres — be mainstream and still retain the rustic, local flavour of my comfort genre,” added the “Moh moh ke dhaage” crooner.
