The Magic of Umrao Jaan_II

Greetings from the musical heartland of India-Chennai!! Having settled down in my new place I had no excuses to delay recording. So here goes...
Since the very first song on this blog was from "Umrao Jaan", I wanted to revive my blog with another song from the same movie. Hope to cover all songs from this movie in my blog someday (including the male solo :)). Just love them!!! Attempting one of my all time favourites Dil Cheez Kya Hai. There were some issues with the track so apologize for the beats sounding odd at some places. As always, your feedback is very welcome.

Song: Dil Cheez Kya Hai
Movie: Umrao Jaan (1981)
Music: Khayyam
Original Singer: Asha Bhosle
Lyrics: Shahryar
Cover by: Nandita

Welcome back Nandita! I loved it! I'm SO impressed with the pitch. Is the original song recorded in the same pitch?
