Bappa Morya – Hema Sardesai


One of the country’s more talented but often underrated vocalists is the Mumbai-born, Goan-based Hema Sardesai who has come a long way since her stage debut as an eight-year-old at a Navratri Festival and, thereafter, has indulged in a playback singing career that commenced in 1989. Of course, she achieved a zenith of sorts with her exceptional vocals on AR Rahman’s “Awaara Bhavaren” from the 1997 film soundtrack ‘Sapnay’, but Hema’s forte is versatility as she has also dabbled in the genres of Indipop, Indian classical, Western pop, folk, and fusion. Add devotional to the list as, on “Bappa Morya”, the singer-cum-music director takes a traditional song into the devotional space with a twist, going through the influences of electronica with a synthesised voice. Perhaps only Hema could have pulled this off as the music, although certainly not for faint-hearted traditionalists, is beautifully produced and executed marvellously.
