Aaja piya tohe pyaar du

The combination of Lata didi and Pancham da has been a little rare. That is what makes songs like this one priceless. I have always tried to take inspiration from the original, keep the soul intact and give my full emotion to the song, while trying to sing it in my way. If you listen to this on headphones, I would like to mention a tiny little thing which I discovered and tried to implement while mixing this song. The initial adleeb Aaja Piya : is plain dry voice, with no reverb or effects. And the full effect on the vocals begins with the next Aaja piya along with the rhythm. I have tried to replicate this mixing technique in my song and it made me realise the magic of sound processing!

Hope you like my honest attempt at this masterpiece. Do share it with your loved ones and keep listening and blessing!

Balala Zop ka ga yet nahi (Angai from Ekda Kaay Zala)

Ekda KaaY Zala is a film by Saleel Kulkarni and it releases next week. This Angaai was released yesterday and I couldn’t stop humming it. Sandeep Khare’s words always do the magic and when combined with Saleel dada’s masterstroke melodies, it never fails to drench us in its beauty. Sunidhi Chauhan has sung this one so beautifully. It is hard to imagine it is the same singer who sang Sheela ki jawaani. A singer’s capability is shaped up many times by a song and an Angaai is certainly one amongst the forms having an incredible capacity to do so!

Hope you like my honest attempt at this masterpiece. Do share it with your loved ones and keep listening and blessing!

Also don’t forget to watch Ekda Kaay Zala at a theatre near you ! Many of my loved ones are involved in this film and it is indeed going to be special!

Jyoti kalash Chhalke

I have admired the concept of Bhupali !

Bhupali भूपाळी is a traditional form of music in Maharashtra which is sung early in the morning to wake up everyone. It is composed in the raag Bhupali which comprises of just 5 notes. I find it overwhelming how just five notes can create such diverse emotions and has such a wide spectrum of expression.

Jyoti kalash Chhalke is a hindi bhupali composed by Sudheer Phadke, Babuji and has a beautiful description of early morning. Joining me for this song is my friend and an amazing singer Deepika Jog. I always love Deepika’s rendition of this song and invited her to sing this one with me, to which she gladly obliged!

Hope you like our honest attempt at this masterpiece. Do share it with your loved ones and keep listening and blessing!
