Teri Meri Raah [Unplugged] – Vijayaa Shanker

There was a time when “unplugged” spawned a new sound and, with it, a new audience too. Then it went commercial to the extent that it began to be utilised by aging rockers to revive their glorious past by providing consumers old wine in new bottles. Unplugged was soon rendered passé. However, on this occasion, singer Vijayaa Shanker revives the “original” concept of ‘unplugged’, if one can call it such, by revisiting a song from her past, ‘Teri Meri Raah’, and going primarily acoustic with it. With the sounds of sarangi entering and exiting the track, as required, it merely provides further enhancement to the ballad composed by the incredibly talented Leslie Lewis who, as the music director too, knows precisely how best to support vocalist Vijayaa Shanker’s marvellous voice. Leslie’s production retains its usual sharpness, the instrument playing continues to bite, and Vijaaya’s vocals are deservedly up in the mix, sounding perfectly engaged. Certainly, with this rendition of ‘Teri Meri Raah’, “unplugged” is a welcome return to nostalgia!
