Main Jise Odhtaa – Alap Desai


From a family of singing parents Hema and Ashit Desai arrives son Alap who learnt tabla but decided to pursue another musical vocation in vocals. While ghazal traditions are closely tied on “Main Jise Odhtaa”, both historically and in contemporary sounds with the usage of keyboards and guitar [courtesy Soumya Seal], but the sounds from the past are not ignored as the piercing sound of flute from Pandit Ronu Mazumdar livens up this mid-tempo tune to wonderful effect. “Main Jise Odhtaa” is generally an enjoyable song for newcomers and the initiated alike, without being exceptional, as the lyrics from Dushyant Kumar are kept simple on a pleasant ghazal debut from Alap Desai.
