Charan Raj credits Duniya Vijay for inspiring Salaga’s background score

It was on actor-director Duniya Vijay's idea that Charan Raj added tribal rhythms such as Siddi music to the Salaga album

Published: 18th April 2020

Music director Charan Raj has nearly finished composing Salaga’s background score and is left with just two more days of work. “One particular episode, which comes in the climax portions, requires live recording and instrumental music. I am waiting for the lockdown period to get over to bring in a few musicians,” says Charan, who gives credit to director-actor Duniya Vijay for inspiring a new approach to the soundtrack.

Salaga, an action-based subject, has a folk flavour added to its background score by blending in tribal rhythms such as the Siddi music. “The treatment is unusual. The idea was given by Vijay sir, to bring in these elements, and that’s how the soundtrack evolved. This folk theme is new to me too, and I had to learn since it was coming from the director himself,” he says.

The song, Suri Anna, is already a huge success and the makers are planning to release two more tracks. “The Siddi theme song, sung by members of the tribe, is sprinkled through various parts of the film. It has interesting placements,” says Charan.

According to the music director, though the subject has high energy moments, equal importance has been given to emotions too. “Overall, I put in some extra effort to do the background score for Salaga, which will give a new viewing experience for the audience,” he says.

Salaga, produced by KP Srikanth, features Sanjana Anand playing the female lead, while Dhananjay will be seen as a cop.
