Catching up with A.R.Rahman

Filed under: My Dayz — Santhosh @ 11:19 PM

The week’s being spent with some of ARR’s non-filmi music that I’ve always wanted to get to but never got around to – “Set me Free” (1991), “Deen Isai Maalai” (1990 – as Dileep Kumar), and “Colours” (1992 – as a keyboard player with Kunnakudi Vaidyanathan and Zakir Hussain). Click here for a full list of independent albums by ARR.

The singles I’d wanted to catch up with were “Oh Bosnia” (1996), “Ekam Satyam” (1999 – with Michael Jackson), and “Ek Rahen Ek Nazaria” (2002 – lyrics by APJ Abdul Kalam). There’s also this single that he composed for Vanessa Mae’s Choreography – “Raga’s Dance” in 2004 – it’s been on infinite loop for 3 days now. It’s a must hear :

Also listening to background scores he’s composed and the download count stands at 40 films right now. The BGM tracks are almost as good as the songs, if not better, which is saying something when you’re talking about such works as Kannathil Muthamittal, Duet and Iruvar. A few more BGMs and I’ll be done with the entire ARR Discography. Let me know if someone needs any of these (pirated of course).
