Akshay hari Smita Ravichandran

Akshay Hari & Smita Ravichandran

Awaaz Anjane
wishes all moms around the world a very happy Mothersí day. While commerce associates gifts, brunches, and dinners as the only worthwhile form of commemoration, it is our children themselves who make up those Mothersí moments. This episode celebrates the joy that parenthood brings through the performances of two talented youngsters, brought up in USA and ardent lovers of Hindi Music. Lack of understanding of Hindi does not prevent Akshay Hari of Pittsburgh from shining in Jab Se Tere Naina and Bol Na Halke Halke. His favorite stars are Sonu Niigam and Himesh Reshammiya. Smita Ravichandran of New York uses her training in Western and Hindustani classical to sing with aplomb Babuji Dheere Chalna and O Meri Sona. In the next episode we will cover the musical extravaganza being organized by the Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation
.

Then Shantha Senadheera brings romance to the episode through Mahendra Kapoorís Tum Agar Saath Dene Ka Ė the masterpiece song from Humraaz.

VaniBOur guest this week is Vani Babbar, the young, promising singer from Delhi, India. Being the daughter of the famous ghazal exponent Satish Babbar, Vaniís forte is definitely ghazal, as she demonstrates through the beautiful composition Aashiyana. But along with her rigorous training in the classical traditions of music, Vani enjoys singing all the genres, including rhymes for children. She provides us a taste of her versatility through another ghazal which she sings during our interview and a Punjabi number from her album Raat Ki Kahani. Fond of public performances, she performed live last year in Kabul in a program organized by the Indian Embassy. Her playback singing debut takes place in the 3D animation film Icy N Spicy, due to be released next month. Listen to a clip from the title track of the film and Vaniís free-wheeling interview.

 Happy Listening!
