K-pop has firmly established itself in the global music scene, and India is no exception, with more and more people joining the group that truly enjoy the art form every day. Numerous collaborations between Korean and Indian music have brought the two genres together in a magical way, and this one has been captivating for many reasons.
Memu Aagamu was a surprise release for the fans of the musicians that contributed to it on August 22. This one-of-a-kind release was a collaboration between emerging K-pop girl group TRI.BE, talented production team Lost Stories (Prayag Mehta and Rishab Joshi), award-winning Indian vocalist Armaan Malik, and Telugu cinema actor Allu Arjun. The Telugu song, which means “We won’t stop,” masterfully combines lyrics penned by Kunaal Vermaa, ELLY (an EXID member), and S.TIGER (Shinsadong Tiger), the latter two of whom have previously contributed to TRI.BE’s songs. It sings of uplifting music in several languages, blending Hindi, Telugu, and Korean poetry. Allu Arjun’s role and Rajit Dev’s choreography add to the film’s appeal. What could be greater than magic produced with cultural innovation and accessible to people all around the world? Memu Aagamu offers just that.
On February 17, 2021, the K-pop girl group made their debut with the release of their first album, “Tri.be Da Loca.” The seven-piece band enters the music industry with both confidence and vibrancy as they achieve collective perfectionism with their diverse abilities.
