Akriti Kakar on why she wants her music to be organic and not programmed, like her new single, Chitta Kukkad


The melody of Punjabi folk song Chitta Kukkad was refreshed in people’s memories recently after The Doorbeen and Ragini Tandon dropped the megahit single, Lamberghini. While that was a dance-pop ditty, songstress Akriti Kakar has revisited it, as well, with a stripped-down, acoustic folk Chitta Kukkad/Baage Vich. “It’s so funny and sad at the same time that people have commented on the video that it sounds like Lamberghini.
