MUMBAI: The legend of devotional music, Anup Jalota launched his new album Krishna- Teri Baansuri with Das Music at Cinemax. Singer Anuradha Paudwal was the chief guest. The album, which comprises eight bhajans has been written by Anup Jalota.
Says Jalota, Ã¢â‚¬Å“The market for this kind of music is huge and will never die. I do playback but for commercial cinema. I was looking out for a fresh voice, which will suit my compositions. Shivangi Raj Luthara, my student, has sung the songs with me.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Shivangi hails from Kanpur where she owns a training academy. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Anupji is like my father. This is my first break and I am thrilled.Ã¢â‚¬Â Currently she is focusing on devotional music but says will consider playback as an option only if Jalota tells her to.
Das Music managing director Dhianu Das says, Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s great to be associated with Anup Jalota. This album will do well as the songs are targeted at the youth too.Ã¢â‚¬Â
About his further plans, Das adds, Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are coming up with two Bhojpuri films as well. Our main target is regional music right now. We are doing a mainstream comedy film as well, which will release this November.Ã¢â‚¬Â
