Do you know Kanishk Seth is the son of Kavita Seth, with whom he composed, wrote and sang the song Rangi Saari? The duo recently recreated the beautiful piece for the upcoming Hindi film Jug Jugg Jeeyo. Rangi Saari, a combination of electronic, Sufi and Hindi music, has ignited the flames in people’s hearts to learn more about the duo of Kanishk Seth and Kavita Seth. Today, we dive deep into their history and bring everything you should know about these two.
Family of Musicians:
Kanishk Seth and Kavita Seth come from a family of musicians. Kavita has another son named Kavish Seth, who has actually invented his own musical instrument called Noori. Kavita Seth is a renowned playback Hindi singer who is also a master of ghazals and Sufi music. She has her own Sufi music group named Karwaan Group, which she heads as a leader.
On the other hand, Kanishk Seth has chosen a completely different route from her mother. He has become an indie artist who loves to experiment with electronic music. Both mother and son perfectly depict the beauty of tradition and modernity through their interests.
Collaborations between Kanishk Seth and Kavita Seth:
Kanishk Seth first collaborated with his mother, Kavita Seth, back in 2015 for his fusion album ‘Trance With Khusrow.’ His mother served as the producer and singer while he wrote the lyrics and put in the electronic effects for the album. Critics and audiences praised Trance With Khusrow.
The album brought Kanishk to the forefront of the music industry. It was nominated for an award at Golden Indian Music Academy Awards in 2015. Their second collaboration Rangi Saari was released during the pandemic. Kavita has said that they did not spend any money on promoting this song. However, the song became a viral hit, and ultimately T-series bought the rights for the song to feature it in the movie Jug Jugg Jeeyo. Kavita Seth and Kanishk Seth have served as the music director for this film.

Kavita Seth started her career in 2005 with the song Maula. The song was part of the movie Vaada. She later went on to sing Iktara in Wake Up Sid in 2009.
