As a tribute to legendary singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Jim Ankan Deka and Ritwika Bhattacharya, the musician duo from Bangalore released 'Tere Bin Nahi Lagda' online.
'Tere Bin Nahi Lagda' was originally composed by the legendary singer for the movie 'Kachche Dhaage' in late 90s and since then it became hot favourite of all Sufi lovers. While there is way no match the musical genius of the noted singer, the new composition is certainly an interesting rendition of the virtuoso's soulful melody.
Ritwika's Sufi styled vocals and Jim's incorporation of jazz elements don't simply echo Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's original composition, but paraphases it as contemporary fusion.
'It's a humble tribute to the incredibly gifted maestro', the budding musicians said. The duo had earlier recorded the famous song 'Ganga' by Dr. Bhupen Hazarika.
The song was recorded in Eastern Fare Studio in Bangalore (Eastern Fare Music Foundation) and was released online on May 13, 2012. The song is available for streaming on Reverbnation, Youtube and iTunes.
