A Small interview:
AAB –> When did you start playing percussion?
Sagar–> I started playing drums when I was in 4th Std. I used to play in School Gatherings etc.
AAB –> Who was your guru and did you take any formal education in music at the early stage?
Sagar–> Music has come to me by birth. Its a god’s special gift to me. I never took any formal education in music. I am a fan of A.R. Rahman and for me, he and his music is only my Teacher.
AAB –> Your parents/ family views on you taking music as a career?
Sagar–> I am always motivated and supported by my parents and friends, and that is the reason I am here.
AAB –> Did being from a small town of Belgaum anyway hinder your music career?
Sagar–> Well, Creativity has no barriers. One should always work hard to achieve his goals. Success follows itself. Being in Belgaum, there was a limited scope for music, but I could manage to get clients through Internet.
AAB –> Narrate some interesting incident good or bad during your career till date?
Sagar–> They are many.. One of the most memorable moment for me was the Music Launch of Drishti, The Vision. I had composed a song dedicated to our Blind Friends. It was my dream to dedicate my talent to the Visually Handicapped and thus, I created Drishti. We shot the video of Drishti at Maheshwari School for Blind, Belgaum. It was a great satisfaction to see the smile on the face of those innocent blind children, when they got to know that I have composed a song specially for them.
AAB –> With whom do you want to work with as a music director? (names)
Sagar–> Oh.. thats a tough question, there are many great names in our industry today. I would love to work with Ashutosh Govarikar, Mahesh Manjrekar. I would also like to assist the great A. R. Rahman sir.
AAB –> You teach at Aptech and how is that you plan your schedule for music?
Sagar–> As it is truly said, “Where there is a will, there is a way”. Its really hard to find time for both the professions at a time. But, music being my passion, I cannot live a day without music. I work on music at nights, usually from 10 pm to 3 am in morning. Thats the time when whole world sleeps, I can find peace. It is the only time when you can feel the lords blessings around you.
AAB –> You also have started MAKE MY GIFT portal, what is the idea behind it?
Sagar–> Well, its a different way of presenting gifts to your dear ones. Usually, people present Show Pieces, Greeting Cards and many such items as a gift, on any special occasions.
Make My Gift, provides you a unique way of presenting music tracks to your dear ones.
These tracks will be composed by me, which would include name of the person and is message. People are loving this concept and the response is good. This concept was suggested by one of my close friend.
