Music composer Himesh Reshammiya, who is currently riding high on the popularity of the songs that he has composed for The Xpose and Humshakals, has worked on an energetic qawalli number for Salman Khan’s next, Kick. Keeping in mind the fact that the film hits the screens during the Ramzan Eid period, Reshammiya has composed a track specially for the festival. Titled Jumme ki raat hain, the song has already been recorded in the voices of singers Mika Singh and Palak Mucchal. “I am constantly trying to reinvent my style and produce compositions that are break away with the signature style that I am known for. Jumme ki raat hain is definitely going to be a youth anthem, which the youngsters can relate to. The song has been wonderfully choreographed by Ahmed Khan and the lyrics are well penned by Kumaar,” mentioned Reshammiya. Currently, the composer is also busy working on the soundtrack for Khan’s next venture with Sooraj Barjatya, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.


Singer Vasudha Sharma recreates Rahman’s Humma humma

Culture Machine offering digital video entertainment for the internet generation has created a bricolage song. The video features Vasudha Sharma, who was earlier a part of the pop band Aasma, and Sarthak Mudgal, a renowned percussionist. The technique used in the song is very similar to the one used by a jug band, where musical beats are created with the help of everyday kitchen appliances. The idea was to create awareness that a woman’s place is not in the kitchen alone and she can do whatever she wishes to. In the video, both Sharma and Mudgal have created a unique blend of the ’90s hit by A.R. Rahman, Humma humma from Bombay, and have mixed it uniquely with the beats of Havells appliances.
