Diwana Hua Baadal

Dear friends,
While Ashaji celebrated her B'day on the 8th, as a tribute to her, here is my attempt at Diwana Hua Baadal sung with Azam Khan. This is a duet very dear to me and it's with pleasure that I share this with all of u! Azam and I sang this a couple of weeks ago but we were both not very happy with the track and waited to get hold of a good track. And, when we did get a track, we both got so busy with routines that this project sat on the back burner :( I am so glad we finally finished it and Azam, thanks so much for singing this with me! You sound really good! Loved all your expressions and modulations!

Some time back Pradip suggested we sing this Malayalam duet "Swasathin Thalam" from the movie "Achuvinte Amma" and as soon as I heard it, I loved it! But, honestly, I was very unsure of being able to carry it off as it is more of a song with the play of breath than the voice itself. Took it as a challenge and practiced singing in whispers :) I was really thrilled when Pradip okayed it :) Here is the result! Pradip has not only sung sooo well, but has also done an awesome job with the mixing. Thanks so very much Pradip..
You will find 2 versions of the same song ..one with the doubling effect like the original and one without at Pradeep's blog.
So friends, please give it a listen... we've worked hard on this one :)
Thank you all for listening.

Hi Vidyu & Azam,
I am a very very long time listener, and Vidyu .... this is the fist time I am writing here. This is one of my long time favorite, being a Rafi ji fan myself, it's not a surprise. As usual you two have done a clear justce for this number. I thoroughly enjoyed, thank you. Now I have to go home, grab my headphones and listen in multiples...

Happy Singing,
Shantha

Excellent!! Might I suggest the song "Diwana Mastana Hua Dil" by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhosle? It's such a fun song and I think you two would be superb in it!
