Timeout - Voice Of Freedom
by Megha Bajaj
Celebrate Independence Day with Dr L Subramaniam's musical visions of India. This CD is inspired by Mahatma Gandhi's well-known prayer – Vaishnava jan to and is sung by popular singers. In fact this CD takes you across the country – as musicians and singers as diverse as Pandit Jasraj and Hariharan, Wadali brothers and Kavita Krishnamurti, Pankaj Udhas and Remo Fernandes come together to create a masterpiece. The first song of the CD, Vaishnava jan to is a classic and continues to evoke deep patriotism and pride in one's country. Written by Sant Narsimh Mehta and immortalised by Gandhiji, the lyrics speak of the quality of an ideal man who feels others' pain as his own. The second track too is very interesting, as it highlights the depth and variety of Indian percussive instruments. The tabla, the conch, the mridangam, the ghatam and many other instruments blend harmoniously in this track. Gift yourself and others this CD .
