I wrote this tune after being inspired by seeing the incredible Raghu Dixit perform live. Many thanks to Neelam Chandra for her fantastic lyrics, and of course to Shweta Subram for her outstanding vocal performance.
If anybody is wondering what I’m doing at the opening of the video, I’m playing an old Koto with pencils. This is because I don’t have proper hammers / strikers, but then again, I think that Koto is supposed to be plucked and not struck…
This is an original composition with lyrics by Mugdha Hasabnis. Many thanks to my sister, Akshaya, for providing a full orchestral string section with only one instrument, and of course to Mugdha for her exceptional voice and singing.
This song is originally by the legendary fusion artist Nitin Sawhney, also made popular by guitarist Jeff Beck. It’s a beautiful composition, written very much in the style of a Hindustani traditional song. I moved away from Sawhney’s original Drum n’ Bass style production for most of the track, but a bit creeps in at the end. Many thanks to the talented Jaunita John for providing excellent vocals.
