Be it Akhiyaan na Akhiyaan alongside the talented Asees Kaur or Aaj Sajeya starring the gorgeous Alaya F, singer and composer Goldie Sohel has made his own mark, and gained a great following in the independent music industry.

Hailing from a musical background, Goldie had never done or gotten any formal music training. His father was a singer, and his grandfather used to sing for All India Radio, so he was raised in a musical household. But ironically, Goldie never planned to become a musician, and music just happened to him.

Over time, he has collaborated with some of the legendary musicians from the industry, including Vishal Dadlani, Asees Kaur, Harshdeep Kaur, and Papon, to name a few, which he says was very raw and adds more colour to the music when he performs with them.
Without any further ado, we placed a call to the singer, who takes us through his debut in the Tamil music industry with Orr Kadhal Kanaa.

Recently, the makers of Aishwarya Rajesh starrer Farhana released the song Orr Kadhal Kanaa in the first week of October. The film’s music is composed by Justin Prabhakaran, who made his Tamil debut with Pannaiyarum Padminiyum and his Telugu debut with Dear Comrade.

This is not Goldie’s first collaboration with Justin. They had previously collaborated for two tracks; Tittar Bittar and Mann Kesar Kesar in Meenakshi Sundareshwar, a 2021 film starring Abhimanyu Dassani and Sanya Malhotra.

The Aaj Sajeya singer says, “I met Justin Prabhakaran through Rajshekhar, who is a brilliant lyricist. He introduced me to Justin, and I sang a Hindi song for him for Meenakshi Sundareshwar. We had become good friends, and I told him that I wanted to sing in different languages also. Then he called and asked me, “Would you like to sing a Tamil song?” And I was like “yes,” and then we met and recorded it. It was a very fun experience. An interesting thing to learn was the language, which is very different from how we do it in Hindi and Punjabi. In Tamil, it is a very different experience, I would say.”

When asked about the difficulties of singing in a different language, he said, “It was a lot of work. The pronunciation of words was a bit difficult for me as it was my first time, but it was fun. There was a translator who made me understand, and even Justin made me feel comfortable and asked me to sing in my own way. Everything is the same, be it Hindi, Punjabi, or South Indian. We all make music in the same way. It’s all about bringing out the music’s soul. Though the language is different, the connection is the same, and the working style is the same. But yeah, it has different variations and different kinds of musical parts, but I felt it to be mostly the same way in the other industries. I personally felt very nice singing this.”

Sharing the same platform or voice alongside the legendary singer and composer Adnan Sami was not something any newbie would expect for their debut. This was the same feeling that Goldie had, too.

“I had no idea that I would be singing along with Adnan sir,” he said, adding, “When we went to dub, I was surprised and shocked at the same time to share the song with such a legend. I am glad that this happened. I am extremely grateful to the film and to Adnan sir for including me in the song.” Singing for films is a different thing, but Goldie is very pleased to see the independent music industry growing at such a pace.

“I am happy that this is happening and how it should be, and that people are putting their music on YouTube and Spotify, so now we have a variety of music. It’s good, and everyone has their own sound, lyrical taste, composition, and musical style. I myself love making independent music, and I’m glad this is happening because even I’m doing it,” he signed off.
