Tere Bin Nahi Lagda - a tribute to maestro Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

There aren't enough words to surmise Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's contribution to the world of Sufi music nor his limitless musical genius. There's certainly no way to replicate his six-octave vocal range or his meticulous compositions. "Tere Bin Nahi Ladga", recently covered by Rittwika Bhattacharya and Jim Ankan Deka, is an interesting rendition of the virtuoso's soulful melody.

Rittwika'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. This is the second song by the musicians together, previously 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 music video was released on July 22, 2012 on the internet. The video is directed by Parmita Borah and shot at Eastern Fare studio in Bangalore.

The song is available for streaming on Reverbnation, Youtube and iTunes.
