It's been 2 weeks since I recorded any new songs. There was so much going on and didn't get a chance to. I'm sure everyone has been busy with family, kids, vacations...Soon we'll all be back to the regular routine and I am so ready for fall..my favorite time of the year. Not just the weather, I love the colors..makes me happy! :) Besides, I love the holidays..Halloween, Thanksgiving...decorating the home. We normally go for long drives just to enjoy the beauty of the fall colors.
Anyways, back to music..I have been busy with this project the past almost 2 months ever since Soumitra wrote to ask me if I'd like to sing a Bengali song with him. At first I was like."No way"!!! I mean, I don't even know the language! But he encouraged me to atleast give it a try before giving it up before attempting and I said "OK..send me the original, lyrics..let me see and no deadlines" :) and all the time I thought, this is never going to happen :) But the tune is sooo pretty and I have always liked the Hindi version. So, I tried and finally my version 3 was okayed! I have to thank our dear friends Amit & Vijaya for helping me with the diction, pronounciation. They spent a lot of time with me helping me to say the words right and also explain the meaning of the song. Soumitra, I have to thank u so very much for ur patience and for the trouble u took to translate the song for me. It helped a great deal. I know it is not perfect, but it has given me immense satisfaction of trying something different :)
Thanks for listening
