Lyrics - Kiran Nath (all lyrics except 5 and 11 are from Kiran's highly acclaimed collection of poems 'Shaayara')
In this charming collection, Kiran Nath shares her gift of writing deeply felt lyrics and then decorating those words with soul-stirring compositions. The collection opens with the passionate 'Ab Kya Kahoon Mere Meherbaan' which establishes the approach for the rest of the album with its flawless blend of Kiran's expressive voice and highly regarded musician Nandu Honap's melodic violin. While every track has something beautiful to offer to the listener, some bear special mention. Tracks 5 and 11 are unique renditions of classics popularized by Farida Khanum and Beghum Akhtar. Track 4 is a lilting and energetic Qawwali most notable for its imaginative use of the tabla and harmonium while Track 7 is a soulfully rendered semi-classical Thumri.
