Music has been an integral part of my life, serving as a constant companion throughout my journey. Even now, approximately 70% of my day is spent immersed in the melodies and rhythms of the music playlists I’ve carefully curated over the years.

What’s remarkable is the universal appeal of music across various genres within the Gen Z community today. Being a proud member of the Gen Z tribe myself, I’ve observed that our contemporary musicians possess a unique ability to craft lyrics that resonate deeply with our generation. These lyrics are often accompanied by catchy and infectious beats that tend to stick with us, creating what we commonly refer to as “earworms.”

Why do Indian Gen Z musicians touch our souls?

What’s truly special about these Gen Z musicians is their capacity to offer a sense of comfort and empowerment through their lyrics. When I’m facing a challenging day or dealing with life’s ups and downs, I can always turn to their music to find solace and motivation.

It’s as if they understand our experiences and emotions, and they channel those sentiments into their songs, making them relatable and therapeutic.

This connection with their music not only makes it enjoyable, but also an essential part of our daily lives, contributing to our sense of identity and belonging within the Gen Z culture.
