Naina Lagai Ke



Chaap Tilak



Chura Liya



In Aankhon Ki Masti Mein








 
 

Fourteen years after she last teamed up with a classical musician, the legendary Bollywood playback singer Asha Bhosle comes together with sitar virtuoso and vocalist Shujaat Khan to perform works from their new album 'Naina Lagai Ke' and some evergreen hits from yesteryears.

In the words of Asha Bhosle and Shujaat Khan "its been a wonderful experience recording with each other because we come from different schools of music and each of us has had to adapt to the other's style. The marvelous part, really, was that we recorded the music and vocals live something that hasn't been done here for years. We throw little vocal challenges at each other and this game of one-upmanship has resulted in some beautiful vocal renditions…we are really proud of the results."

"Naina Lagai Ke brings together two Olympian musicians from different parts of the musical spectrum. Asha's voice - sharp, crystal clarity, seductive with sublime contrasts - weaves between Shujaat's deep, mellow, velvety and warm bass tones, together with his delicate, playful and enchanting sitar playing."
