HEART to HEART

1.   DIL KI GIRAH
open the knots of your heart so our breath can become one …. the night will tell the true story of our love.

2.   TAMANNA 
this is my wish, to live and die with you, my love is calling you….

3.   MERE JAHAAN MEIN
my breath stands still…..without you every thing is incomplete. 

4.   HAZARON HICHKI
how can I understand this sudden separation, how can I overcome this pain?

5.   WOH MEETHI BAATEIN
those sweet chitchats….it is the season of desire, …..I am breathless. 

6.   DIL AISA MERA PAAGAL
this crazy heart of mine ….I want to fly as a butterfly with you.

7.   MERI ZINDAGI MEIN TUM CHALE AAO
come back into my life, together we will sing the song of love. 

8.   DIL KA MANJEERA
the cymbals of my heart are resounding, bound by the strings of my heart.

So in January this year I landed in New York all the way from Mumbai, excited to meet my Grammy friends for the first time! Virgin Atlantic landed me without my luggage :) 

All I had was my handbag, cell phone and laptop. Fortunately, my travel insurance allowed me to purchase two sets of clothes and I stayed with a friend for three days till my luggage arrived. 

In that time, seeing the snow and having not much to do, I decided to shoot a selfie video. Yes the video on the song Dil Aisa Mera Paagal I shot on my own using my cell phone and macbookpro. It was simply fun and at least kept me occupied but take a look, I edited it as well on my flight back and feel very inspired to have experimented this way. 

                                    


There are three composers in my album. 

NEERAJ SRIDHAR (Bombay Viking)

In 2003, while I was on tour in Europe, Neeraj invited me to his home in Sweden. He surprised me by composing Tamanna for me as a gift. Unreleased over the years, in 2015 I reconnected with my friend Tutun Roy who rearranged the music. I am grateful to have this song from Neeraj Sridhar a great performer, composer, arranger and friend. Tutun Roy no doubt has proved his excellence in the arrangement and programming. 

BABUL BOSE 

In 1995 Babul Bose composed for my album Dil Mein Tum which was released on audio cassette. I chose to present one of the songs Meri Zindagi Mein Tum Chale Awo once again. The composition and lyrics are as the original, the music has been re-arranged by Ravi Lakhani and Abhishek Bose.  Babul Bose is well-known for his work as a composer in Bengali movies. I am blessed to have worked with him. 

RAJEEV MAHAVIR 

We met in 2014, a soulmate connection, his music and my voice became bound in one - one breath that churned out Manzil Tu Hi, a Sufi pop song that charted at no. 29 on the iTunes Top 100 World Music chart; Krishna, The Flute Player, a World Music album that charted at no. 14 on the US Billboard Chart and now six romantic songs that Rajeev said came to us from Almighty Himself based on my aura. 


Thank you for your consideration and may we always stay together in the love of music,
