MUMBAI: Saregama India has released an album with Asha Bhosle and sitar player and singer Shujaat Khan which has been recorded live in the studio.
The album which is named Naina Lagai Ke sees Bhosle collaborate with a classical musician after 14 years. In 1996 she had worked with Ustad Ali Akbar Khan on an album titled Legacy that was nominated for a Grammy Award.
Saregama India VP Atul Churamani, “We always aim at giving our audiences something different and unique. The combination of Ashaji and Shujaat Khan brings together two amazing artistes, producing music that is fresh, yet retains an old world charm. I don’t know after how long a non classical music album has been recorded live in the studio. We had so much fabulous vocal material after the recording that it was difficult and heart breaking to edit the songs.”
