Waiting – Himali Vyas Naik


From the success of “Thaari Sakhaaji”, singer Himali Vyas Naik – who was tutored in Indian classical vocals since four – has enhanced her reputation as a clear voiced vocalist with “Waiting”, a song collaborated with producer/arranger Harshit Acharya. Himali is backed by musicians who mix energetic guitars, bass, keyboards, and harmony vocals with the subtle usage of technology, adding loops or dub effects. The song is self-written, and fits well with the modernisation of a traditional raga, supported by Himali’s vocals shifting from Hindi to English by the song’s inevitable end on an impressive mid-tempo set bordering on world music.

Ami Ashbo Bole: Azizul Abedin




Azizul Abedin is a Bangladeshi singer, lyricist, and music composer, who has studied in Liverpool, the birth place of ‘The Beatles’. Although his compositions may be in Bengali – singing paeans of love, emotion, and sentiments – Azizul’s musical influences include a pre-Beatles era if you listen to ‘Ami Ashbo Bole’ carefully. It almost heralds the vintage sounds of using an echo chamber to layer voices, instruments, and drums. Azizul’s solo, deep voice combined with an Everly Brothers’–style harmony from the female backing vocalists, and the soothing melody creates a sweet blend of lyric and sound effect to texturize the Bengali pop tune. Enjoyable stuff!
