Wake Up Nandita

.....It's been so long since I posted something here. Thought it was about time to dust my recording equipment and exercise my vocal chords. Work has been keeping me very busy and lecturing large classes has taken a toll on my voice. Partly my fault as I speak loudly despite having a microphone (go figure). I hope the damage is repairable!

So have been really obsessed with Iktara from Wake up Sid. It's one of those songs that I can hear umpteen number of times in a loop. The only other song I had been this hooked to (excluding the golden oldies) was Beetein Lamhe from The Train. So here goes my attempt at this song. Thankfully the main chorus part was already there in the track. However, the male bits were not there so I kind of tried to fill in with my voice (hope it doesn't sound too awful ha ha).

Song: Iktara
Movie: Wake up Sid
Singer: Kavita Sheth and Amitabh Bhattacharya
Music: Amit Trivedi
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya

Pooja said...

Great to have you back Nandita. You sound great!

Nandita M said...

Beat99- Thanks! Ya I agree a bit more reverb would be better. I had so many tracks with the chorus bits etc. that kind of got lazy with the mixing.
Pooja - Thanks. Please teach me how to manage time. I am so impressed that you found time to listen and comment. Thanks again.

My first time in here. Very effective singing Nandita. There could have been an echo like feel in the chorus. You surely have another follower from here on. There is a small correction which I expect you to make regarding the music and lyrics here: the music was composed by Amit Trivedi (Dev D fame) and the lyrics were written by Amitabh Bhattacharya (the guy who sings the chorus part). Please make the correction soon.

Rahul - Thanks
Akshay - Welcome to my space. Thanks for the comments and the corrections.
