OL to ZeeNews: Our music has a humane perspective
While in Delhi, India Outlandish gave an interview to Zee News, a 24-hour Hindi current affairs and news channel in the country.

Interview by Aman Kanth:

Aman : Outlandish is a strange name for a band any reason behind choosing such a name?

Outlandish : When we started way back in 1996-97, we wanted to carve our unique identity in the Danish music scene. The name Outlandish has a certain shock value and it surely made us stand apart from the rest of the crowd.

Aman : How did your musical journey begin?

Outlandish : We all (Waqas, Isam and Lenny) belong to same neighbourhood. In fact, Lenny and Waqas went to the same school. After school hours, there were a lot of things to catch up and when Hip Hop came, we all started rapping. Basically, none of us come from a musical background and during those days, we did not even have guitars at home.

Aman : Your songs offer an eclectic mix of various sounds a lot of Danish, Arabian, Latin American and Spanish sounds. What’s your music all about?

Outlandish : We are basically a Hip Hop band, but our music is a blend of various genres such as Reggae and Blues. We grew up on various sounds, be it Bollywood music of films like ‘Sholay’, ‘Satte Pe Satta’ or Latin American music. Well, many bands may focus on bling-bling and stuff like that; for us, our music is all about discovering new sounds and expressing ourselves. We grew up in Denmark, it is a different society where there is no gangsta rap. For us, we create our own unique sound and vision through Hip Hop.

Aman : What are your musical influences?

Outlandish : Fugees, Outkast and Michael Jackson are some of our musical influences.

Aman : Your songs carry deeper meanings in a sense they carry strong socio-political undercurrents. Is that a conscious decision to make your music focus on a lot of contemporary issues?

Outlandish : Well, of course, our music has a social realistic side too. We express ourselves in our own way. It’s a humane perspective a state of mind that inspires us. For instance, in India, we come across different cultures and its problems such as poverty, this definitely affects us. Whether it’s the war in Iraq or Afghanistan, it’s all in the background. We do discuss these things in our daily lives. We are not like artists living in an ivory tower cut off from the rest of the world. We are conscious of what’s going around us.

Aman : Tell us something about your new album, ‘Sounds of a Rebel’?

Outlandish : We never stand on the same spot twice. We keep moving. We don’t want to do another ‘Aicha’. It’s like the world changes and so does your perspective. The new album is all about us, our relationships. It’s about the energy of going back to the studio and catching up with each other. It certainly offers a fresh sound.

Aman : How do you find India, especially Bollywood?

Outlandish : India is very inspirational. It is a beautiful and great country that has diverse cultural and historical background. In fact, we are honoured to be in India. We thank our fans; people still remember us is a great feeling as we have a loyal fan base. About Bollywood, we would love to meet AR Rahman. The last time we met him was in 2004 at the Emmy’s. We would like to get in touch with him and also look forward to working with him.

Aman : Finally, what’s your message for your fans?

Outlandish : We thank all our fans for their unconditional support. They are the source of our inspiration that goes back to our music.
