From the CD

Times Music presents Indian sounds of silence. The chants that appeal to your soul. Words that uplift you from the realm of the normal. Melodies that originate from deep within. It is a sublime rendition of our prayers in music. SHRADDHA. Meaning devotion, meaning sixty soothing minutes for your soul.

And yet these will echo in your ears long after they are played and over. Be it the endless Om Shanti Shanti Shanti, or be it the rhythms of our traditional cymbals, they play on and on from generation to generation, giving the younger amongst us one more opportunity to familiarize themselves with our rich melodic traditions.

SHRADDHA has been conceptualized by Hemant Mattani, whose years in UK have still not distanced him from Indian tradition and values, and who continues in the footsteps of his father Chandubhai Mattani.

In this album, the composer Ashit Desai has effected a coming together of Indian musical instruments like the sarod, sitar, santoor and shehnai with foreign instruments. It is an eclectic fusion for the soul.

SHRADDHA is a blessing, in the guise of a musical album.

ASHIT DESAI

To Ashit, music was a legacy, then it grew to be a passion. His repertoire has flowed wide and deep. Though his music is firmly rooted in tradition, his compositions augment the melodies with creative variations within the broad framework of the poetic mood being evoked.

As a composer, he tackles difficult themes with effortless ease lending a masterly touch to his work. He has scored dramas, dances, ballets, serials and numerous albums. He also sang devotional songs for the film ‘GANDHI,’ each revealing the man behind the music.

His individuality and talent is amply displayed in SHRADDHA. In the last three decades, Ashit has crafted a rich and varied body of work, yet his musical talent flows unabated. So much done, so much yet to do….
