    Description

    Recorded in India this was Najma’s first experience of going into a recording studio and working with musicians. This project was the dream child of the versatile Bollywood (Indian Film) music director the late ‘Ravi’, who is a legend in his own right as a composer and vocalist. This album has been recorded with the full regalia of a Bollywood music orchestra but adapting the music to the Ghazal. ‘The whole experience was an education’ quote’s Najma.


    “What marks out Najma amidst several new singers is that even though she has been born and brought up in the west away from the eastern environments, her keenness in Asian music is indeed undaunting and her pronunciation is immaculate.”
