During Secret Life of Walter Mitty that I was watching last night, this David Bowie song “Space Oddity” comes on where Kristen Wiig comes on screen and plays it on Guitar for Walter to motivate him. As Varuna is doing her Basic Mountaineering Course (BMC) at Himalayan Mountaineering Institute (HMI), I thought of recording a verse…
On Herath (Kashmiri Shivratri) 2017 last week, I was at Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary beyond Almora, in Kumaon Himalayas and I decided to dedicate this Kashmiri Bhajan to everyone on my Guitar. I don’t speak Kashmiri but my wife tried my best to teach me 🙂 Pls forgive any mistakes…Herath Mubarak.. In the background you might…
On 148th death anniversary of Mirza Ghalib, I paid my respect and a small tribute to Mirza Ghalib by singing Jagjit Singh’s rendition..
This is my rendition on Guitar of Sahir Ludhianvi’s Nazm, Kabhi Kabhi Mere Dil Me from the Urdu Play “Ek Mulaqaat” that I recently saw starring Deepti Naval and Shekhar Suman. Honestly, I liked this version better than the movie version.
She walks over to him and she says “do you remember me?” I think we might have met somewhere before… Tried to learn an old favorite of mine and that too on a fasting stomach! Tim McGraw’s “You don’t love me anymore” kept me company on many icy highways of Michigan back in the days….
My first attempt ever at this all time favorite song of mine. “This old guitar” by John Denver.
A rather offbeat Indian Wedding where the Groom was asked to sing something on Guitar and the night took a musical turn when a Guitar emerged suddenly and Jagjit Singh’s rendition of “Unke Dekhe Se” Ghazal by Mirza Ghalib resonated in the skies of Jammu
One of my favorite folk songs that I used to listen to quite a lot back in early 2000s during college. The song was written by American folk singer-songwriter Tom Paxton in the early 1960s. This is my attempt at Chad Mitchell Trio’s (another folk trio from 60s) rendition. Peace~
Nikhil wrote a poem back in September last yr which I took and turned into a song and composed it in Sitla Village in Himalayas. Here is the first recording I did yesterday. This is our tribute to the beloved Himalayas that are forever beckoning.. Please follow us on Facebook for more!
I wrote this song while staying and working in Sitla Village, Uttarakhand last year. A simple melody that flows with the words. Nikhil and I hope to record this soon..This is a test run of the song I did a month ago here in Delhi. Thanks for listening!
