New Delhi: Falguni Pathak, who brought a new flavour to pop music in the late 1990s with her romantic songs, has also made several people groove to her folk numbers replete with dandiya beats. She says folk music has a larger appeal in the country.

For a long time, Pathak, 42, has been a star attraction at Navratri events during the festive season and she makes thousands of people dance to her tracks like 'Endra meruwa gayi', 'Cham cham payaliya' and 'Ayee re milan ki raat umbre ubhi'.

"I agree (that folk songs have larger appeal than other pop songs) and we always try to stick to folk. They are very natural and not made up. I myself enjoy folk music, so I always make an effort to be more close to it," Pathak told IANS.

She does not hesitate in accepting that "when I think of music, only folk music appeals to me the most".

The Navratri festival, which goes on for nine days, concluded recently. It was a busy time for Pathak as she was booked to regale dandiya enthusiasts by performing at the Police Parade Grounds in Ghatkopar, Mumbai.

The show was organised by event organising company Mangal Entertainment Private Ltd.

The singer ruled the pop music scene with her tracks like 'Yaad piya ki aane lagi', 'Maine payal hai chhankai', 'Meri chunnar udh udh jaaye' and 'Odhani'. She credits team work for helping her with the success of her songs.

"Actually it has been always team work. My music director always felt that my voice was like that of a teenager, so I sang all those songs," said Pathak.

Now she has plans to launch an album sometime next year. It will also have folk music.
