Some of the old music is rearranged, recreated along with newer compositions are presented with finesse. Unplugged is an even where three or four musicians just pick a guitar, a drum set or a flute and one crooner just delivers the song in natural settings. This raw talent is showcased without any electronic interference to convert it. No mixers, or heavy orchestras are used as accompaniments. However, at his show at Nagpur, Amit claimed that there will be musicians on saxophone, clarinet, shehnai, flute and a base guitar (by Amit himself).

The newer generation prefers to download music and songs and listen to them. He attributed this to be one of the causes of music or songs short life. He said this while answering to a query by media personnel that the old songs and music having evergreen nature while today’s music is short lived and what is in trend fades away within a few days.

He claimed that the youth between the age group of 15 to 35 are the only people who buy music. Therefore the music is made to cater to their likings.
