Hindi Songs Without Percussion.

Around 4 years ago when i took NIIT IT Aptitude Test (NITAT), first question that I encountered was a comprehension one. It was a paragraph about drums & percussion. It said percussion is heart of any song. Well, I agree. But there are a few songs that don't have percussion part. Percussion means any music instrument like drums, tabla, dhol, dholak, mridang etc. Probably this is first of its kind post. Below are the 2 very good songs that don't rely on percussion.
1. Jaao Na (What's Your Raashee?) - Music & Singer - Sohail Sen. Progressive. Almost entirely carried out by guitar strings. Very enjoyable, very sweet. 





2. Tujhko Jo Paaya (Crook) - Music - Pritam, Singer - Mohit Chauhan. Again relies on guitar strings. Down-tempo & a bit coarse.

Music Review of Ek Tha Tiger

Been waiting for Ek Tha Tiger's music since long. Now that I have heard all the songs, I am writing a short music review of this album.
When you have Sohail Sen alongwith Sajid-Wajid as music composers, expectations are sure to be very high. Ek Tha Tiger lives upto the expectations. There are 8 songs in the album with 4 originals, 3 remixes & 1 theme song. Music is melodious & since there is a hint of Persian music, it sounds even more interesting. Below is the short music review of Ek Tha Tiger.
1. MashAllah : -Singer(s) - Wajid Khan & Shreya Ghoshal.
Perfect opening to the album. The video has already gone viral on internet. Typical middle-east tunes open this. Prelude is quite catchy. Sajid-Wajid then fuse it with electronic tunes. Tune is instantly likeable & arrangements are quite interesting. Wajid & Shreya sing in perfect persian accent. Techno effect is nicely placed. 
2. Laapata : -Singer(s) - KK & Shreya Ghoshal.
Master singer KK comes behind mic along…

Qasam Se Qasam Se - Music Review / Opinion

Qasam Qasam Se - Music : Shailendra - Sayanti.
When an album consists of songs sung by master singers like Kunal Ganjawala, Shaan, Mohit Chouhan & KK and Jal Band, it becomes a compulsion for me to check that out. Qasam Se Qasam Se belongs to this category. These big names made me listen to the album & I was not disappointed! Though, its average only. 3 songs stand out. Jal Band disappoints so do songs by Kunal & Shaan. Below is the brief review of the 6 out of 12 songs that I have heard. Will review others shortly. Read on.
1. Zindagi Keh Rahi Hai : - Singer - Mohit Chouhan.
When Mohit Chouhan sings a song, we can't help but get lost in that. Zindagi Keh Rahi Hai is really a beautiful song. But Mohit sings his heart out in his typical style. Interesting preludes consisting of Sax & some aalaaps / croons provide a perfect opening to this easy on ear song. Sounds a bit like some Mehfil song. Percussion is really interesting. Lyrics also support it well. Good work by c…
