Every 90’s child grew up listening to Falguni Pathak’s songs. From pop music presented in oh-so-cute videos to live performances on stage rocking Garba and Dandiya nights, the indie-pop singer created a niche for herself in the Indian music industry.
Navratri is celebrated in the form of garba and dandiya mostly in Maharashtra and Gujarat. Dressed in traditional Gujarati attires, people celebrate the festival with some foot-tapping numbers in full swing. So, what you waiting for?

This Falguni Pathak number is a must for your Navratri celebration as the song really uplifts the feel and magic of the festival.
The Gujarati influence was quite dominant in this song. Sriti Jha, who is now a popular TV actress, first appeared here.
On this Navratri 2018, Falguni Pathak will perform at Borivali in Mumbai. Besides, she has many other engagements in India and abroad. Having performed across several parts of the world, the singer finds no difference in enthusiasm of people stepping in to enjoy Garba. “The love for Garba is the same everywhere. People come with the same zeal and vigour in every part of the world. It’s just headcounts that differ, as more people turn up for such events in India than other countries”, she was quoted as saying to Money Control.
There was a time when Falguni had become famous among the youth with her soothing Hindi love songs having a mix of pop and Gujarati Garba music. But now, for several years, she has been staying away. Asked about it, she said with a smile, “Those albums were released by Universal Music. They approached me with a proposal to release pop albums at that time.” If any music studio would offer her to compose songs, she would love to be back, said Falguni.
With nearly three decades in the music industry, the veteran singer thinks there has been much transition in this sector. “The songs have become too techno. The old feel of music is missing today. This is the reason that the songs, made earlier, became legendary and are still fresh in the minds of music lovers. The electronisation of music has reduced life of songs and limited them to the memory of people only for a short period of time.”
